Skillz 2018 Holiday Parties!

We recently celebrated the end of 2018 with our annual holiday parties – one in San Francisco and one in Portland, for each of our offices!

 
Our San Francisco celebration was held aboard the SS Jeremiah O’Brien, docked at Pier 45 near Fisherman’s Wharf overlooking the Bay. Skillzians enjoyed a delicious catered dinner (complete with a mini crème brûlée tower), photobooth, dancing, and sipping on champagne around fire pits on the upper deck.



 
The SS Jeremiah O’Brien was featured in the classic 1997 film Titanic, and as an extra treat, Skillzians were able to explore original filming locations below deck!


 
Over in Portland, our local holiday celebration was held at a beautiful indoor/outdoor plant nursery decked out in festive lights.


 
Employees enjoyed a holiday feast, festive cocktails, and music at the venue. In typical Skillz fashion, there were also games and prizes to be won following dinner!


 
Our CEO and founder, Andrew Paradise, delivered speeches at both events to recognize the highlights of every department in 2018.

 
Our holiday parties were a perfect way to celebrate another successful year. If you’re interested in joining our team in 2019, check out our careers page!
