Skillz Portland Office DIY Bar Outing!

Here at Skillz, we love spending time with each other both inside and outside of the office. One of the favorite bonding activities in our San Francisco headquarters is the quarterly team challenge, but recently the Portland office made all our Bay Area residents jealous with their craft night outing! Our Payments Supervisor Cam, a member of the customer advocacy team in Portland, provided the inspiration for the group to visit DIY Bar together – a local craft shop that provides projects ideas, materials and refreshments resulting in a fun night and a functional piece of art personalized by each individual to take home!

Our team made some “nerd crafts” inspired by film franchises such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, and The Fast and the Furious – plus everyone’s favorite emoji: 💯! The whole Portland team had a great night spending an evening together getting in touch with their crafty sides, and they walked away with awesome new keepsakes including bottle openers and flasks. They hope to go back again in the future to make some video game-themed decorations for the Skillz Portland office!
