As evidenced by this blog, it’s obvious that Datto is a pretty unique and fun place to work. We tend to do things a little out of the ordinary and have tons of awesome perks for employees. With an office full of Star Wars fans, we HAD to do something big for the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Last week, Datto rented out a movie theater in Norwalk so 200 employees from our Connecticut office could get their Jedi on. In true Star Wars fan fashion, Datto employees were ready at the stroke of midnight when the movie officially opened to head off to a galaxy far, far away.
To put a little Datto spin on all the excitement, some of our employees created their own trailers to be featured in the theater before the movie. This was a fun opportunity for some of our employees to show off their talents outside their typical job duties. Not only was a digital media team involved in the trailers, but technical support, training and even our CEO Austin McChord made a special trailer.
The employees were all given the resources required to pull of the impressive videos to showcase their talent. At Datto, it’s not all about work. We also like to have fun and allow our employees to explore other interests that they may not typically get the chance to do on a weekly basis.
