An Insider's view of Mill

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I think of our company virtue, Levity. There’s a high concentration of tie-dye, Slack huddles, brainstorming in the office, whiteboard sessions, puns and jokes. You can hear someone laughing somewhere at least once a day.


Electrical Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

Creating a personality for Mill. There are no preconceived notions of who Mill is yet, we get to define it, that’s incredibly exciting.


Social Media Marketing

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We give each other permission to be elastic, to bounce back, to grow and notch forward. And delightfulness is everywhere – in the product, in our office, even in our naming conventions. The branding in surprise locations really solidifies the spunkiness of our brand…and the team!


Hardware Program Management

How does your team reward individual success?

In large corporations, you can be siloed off into specific tasks and you never see the end product of your work. At Mill, you start with a problem that you’ve identified, brainstorm a solution, bring it to life and test the solution; you get to see the end result of your work.
