Revisiting Our Annual All-Hands Summit, Connect 2015
August 6, 2015
Last month, 200 SocialCoders from across the country gathered in Austin, Texas for SocialCode’s third annual all-hands summit, Connect – an immersive, three-day experience designed to drive internal alignment, build trust and inspire our team through shared experience.
We took over two hotels in the heart of Austin’s historic entertainment district, steps away from Sixth Street. Our Connect headquarters – a massive warehouse down the street – was equipped with lights, sound, stage and tasty treats galore.

We exchanged perspectives, debated key issues and spent each day immersed in discussions with our customers, platform partners and industry peers. We heard from internal teams in every department, sharing our latest product developments, client success stories and tech roadmaps.
The Fun Stuff
After the content concluded, we split off into four “houses”, each named after a pinnacle of Texas pop culture. Each afternoon, the houses battled in group challenges, winning points for victory and spirit in pursuit of the coveted “Connect Cup.”
Evenings were spent at local Texas watering holes, giving the team an opportunity to bond. And a few SocialCoders from offices on opposite coasts – performing under the moniker “Laura and the O’s” – put on a surprise live music set, filled with sing-along classics.
In A Nutshell
Connect is about coming together. It’s about sharing ideas. And it’s about getting a bunch of smart, motivated people to reinforce a foundation of fun-loving curiosity, flawless performance and operational excellence. Together, we shaped the future of the company. And we had an awesome time doing it.
Connect is one of the many ways we invest in our people and our culture. If SocialCode sounds like a place for you, we’re actively hiring in client services product, engineering, ad operations, data science and marketing. Check out the specific openings on our Careers page.
