Our Culture

We believe that everyone who works at Azavar is on the same team. As teammates, we help each other by doing our own part well, collaborating to find the best solution and pitching in when someone needs it. At Azavar, there’s always someone who is willing to teach you something new across the full development stack. We’re young. We’re diverse. We’re energetic. We enjoy each other and have fun. Many of us have spouses, kids, dogs, picket fences and train schedules, so appreciate the commitment to work/life balance that exists at Azavar.

Location

Our Location

Chicago is our kind of town, and always has been. We’re right downtown and love jockeying for position on crowded sidewalks, hearing the clatter of the el tracks and watching how the color of Lake Michigan can change from day to day. On the southeast corner of the Loop, el and bus stops are super handy, and all the commuter train stations are walkable (or hikable, depending on your POV). Need a place to recharge? Pop around the corner to the Art Institute or Grant Park. Need a serious jolt? You will never need a coat or umbrella to visit the coffee shop in the lobby.

Workspace

Our Workspace

Have we got our priorities right, or what? We’ve got a great view of Lake Michigan from our offices, and it’s available to everyone in the company because we designed our space so that our main crew workspaces look out the window. Yep, you heard right. Our big-wigs are on the interior edge in offices with no windows (but glass walls). We like to keep things transparent, and even our conference room is all glass. We consider walls places to draw an idea, take notes and keep a deadline schedule. Our white, bright lunchroom is the site of catered-in lunch every Friday and the occasional happy hour.

Just a Day in the Worklife at Azavar.
