An Insider's view of ASICS Digital

What’s the vibe like in the office?

You can expect to hear anything from Celine Dion to Megadeth playing on Fridays from our Jambox, spontaneous poetry readings (from me), random off-beat slow claps for doing everyday tasks i.e. leaving the office. Overall though, my favorite thing about our office is the safe environment to be who you are every day.

Customer Support Manager

What does your typical day look like?

When your coworkers are composed of real-life ninjas, loon preservationists, triathletes, and office dogs, it's not an exaggeration to say that each day at the office is different. We're a fast-paced company with a laid-back vibe. We work hard to develop the latest app features but we're passionate about having fun along the way.

What makes someone successful on your team?

At ASICS we seek out people that are smart, curious and humble. Above all, we make hiring decisions based on whether an individual will strengthen our culture or diminish it. No matter how strong the candidate's skills are, if we aren’t confident our collective team grows stronger with them on it, we won’t move forward.

The success of both my team and ADI at large depends on creative ideas being captured from everywhere, so we've created an environment where everyone feels comfortable and empowered enough to share their great ideas.
