Summer is officially upon us and we’re shaking off the winter blues with another summer playlist!
We have a hybrid team here at Kikoda, which means while a lot of our team splits their time between working from home and the Kikoda headquarters, we also have team members who choose to work fully remote. We are so grateful for the technological and cultural innovations that allow our team to provide custom software development, data analytics, cloud solutions, and other IT services to our clients all over the United States. Having a hybrid team means we can tap into to the best talent on a nationwide scale, and with that comes some eclectic musical tastes!
Our flexible workplace creates an environment that encourages us to find creative ways to bond with our team and maintain a strong company culture. One of the ways we keep our culture alive and well is by sharing music with one another, allowing us to not only discover new music but to learn more about each other. We called on our team of headbangers, swooners, and pop-heads to put together a Kikoda summer soundtrack and share the bops that keeps them feeling sunny and productive.
