We've been to the Makai office. It looks like a very cool place to work!

Hi Daniel,

It is a cool place to work! A few engineering just returned from surfing at rabbit island during their lunch break. And tonight we have Pau Hana where all the employees brainstorm new tech ideas over pupus and drinks. The next time you are here, look me up; 2nd building, 2nd floor.



@Michael - I will!

This position has been filled - thank you to everyone who submitted a resume!

Have a great day!


Congratulations to whoever got that one.  What an amazing place to go to work every day!
