What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Boingoites are faced with challenges every day, but there is nothing sweeter than overcoming a difficult task, together. The perfect example is launching Project Jake. We completely redesigned our UI for Boingo Broadband customers. It launched to much success & a boost in sales and is evidence of the awesome team work and collaboration at Boingo.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Some might think that it’s the gorgeous view, snacks, or kombucha on tap, but the people are really what make coming to work every day so awesome. It’s an innovative environment that solves complex problems, but knows how to have fun along the way.

I even live with two Boingoites, so I guess you could say…I really like it here!
