Mobify's Product Team Goes Kayaking at Deep Cove

For the Product Team at Mobify, the end of a quarter signifies a time to celebrate the last three months of hard work and indulge in some fun team-building activities. This quarter, we decided to take an afternoon off, head out to Deep Cove, and spend a few hours kayaking around the Indian Arm. There's nothing like getting some exercise and fresh air while enjoying a beautiful spot close to home.

Team Mobify Discovers Competitive Muggle Quidditch

The Golden Snitch messing with Kyle Young

It was the moment I felt the broom lift up that I realized I'd erred. My adversary, a man with a tennis ball in a sock tucked into his shorts, had gotten ahold of me. I was about to be the only Muggle who knew how to fly. I gripped the broom tightly, determined not to be unmounted as competitive pride and stubbornness overtook me; and then we started to spin.

Mobify's Quidditch team was born of that proud tradition of tech conference open bars, when after a weekend of talks on DevOps, and past the point of pretending that drink tickets were scarce, a challenge was put forth to fellow Vancouver startup Hootsuite. There on the field, as the blood began to rush to my head, and my knuckles whitened, I recalled the initial reaction of my team to being conscripted into this; that it was a made-up game, and a slightly ridiculous one at that. I was beginning to agree.

Treasure Hunts at Mobify HQ

Treasure Hunting Team

My name is Dania Fawaz and I’m Mobify’s new Talent Coordinator. I’ve been here for a few weeks now and last week it was my turn to participate in Mobify’s awesome onboarding activity: the Mobify Treasure Hunt!

It all started off with a meeting at Yana’s desk. Yana is Mobify’s Office Administrator and is in charge of organizing this afternoon of fun. Yana introduced me to my fellow treasure hunting team, which consisted of myself, Ellen Wong, our newest QA Engineer and Mike Lee, our newest Mobile Developer. After meeting my fellow treasure hunters, we received a list of 16 clues, 2 Polaroid cameras, and a giant bag of candy (to bribe other Mobifiers to help us with our hunt).

Mobify Marketing Team Members Cross Swords. Literally.

The Marketing team all striking a pose

My name is Cheryl Mack, and I’m one of the latest additions to the marketing team here at Mobify. It’s my second week, and it seems like every day I find out about something new and cool the company does for the people that work here. Yesterday that cool thing was a mid-afternoon break-out session where we all get the chance to get out of the office and go do some kind of fun activity.

When I found out that the activity of choice was sword fighting, I was super excited! The location: just around the corner from our Gastown office to a little studio called Academie Duello Centre for Swordplay.

Mobify Weekend Retreat at Lightning Lake

Chatting around the fire

My name is James Bryant, and I’m one of the latest additions to the Product Team at Mobify. I’ve recently moved from Australia to live and work in Canada, so when I heard the Ops team was putting together a camping trip out in the BC wilderness, I got involved immediately.
