This week our team converged on Washington, DC for a sprint week and our annual holiday party, with 45 people coming together, flying in from the West Coast, Peru, Ukraine, England, and Germany. It’s been a blast to have so many of us working together in the DC garage. Here are some highlights from our holiday party, where we had a family style barbecue dinner, plenty of drinks, and played our annual homemade ornament contest. A big thanks to Justin for photographing the night!

For a history of how we’ve grown throughout the years check out photos from past holiday parties: 2012, 2011, and 2010.
