A Very Skillzian Summer: PTO Adventures

One of the perks of working at Skillz is our unlimited paid time off (PTO) policy. Many Skillzians take advantage of this benefit to travel and spend time with friends and family, especially during the warm summer months. Check out some of the fun trips that our teammates have taken recently, and maybe even get some inspiration for your next vacation!

Alyssa traveled home to sunny Santa Barbara, CA for a relaxing week with her family. She enjoyed tasty barbecue food with her mom, dad, and niece, shopped in a Danish town called Solvang, and played bingo!

Chloe celebrated her birthday in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with her close friends! She loved the crystal clear ocean water and breezy boat rides.

Chris spent his time off meeting cool characters at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles, and touring the city with up-and-coming local DJs – talk about a VIP experience! He also went to Las Vegas, where he attended a music festival and hosted a meetup with the non-profit where he consults.

Tiffani got into the vacation spirit with face paint and fun souvenirs at [one of the] happiest places on Earth – Disney World! She and her husband also explored the beautiful Cocoa Beach in Florida and took cute selfies along the way.

  Kevin went to Boston for his cousin’s wedding, and got to check out the city where Skillz was founded! He explored the area and visited historic sites, including the USS Constitution and the Freedom Trail. Kevin then headed over to Rhode Island and Nantucket, where he ate some amazing seafood with his family!
