Skillz Company BBQ

WELCOME, SUMMERTIME! As everyone knows, with the sun comes the fun! If you’ve checked out past examples of our various team outings and office activities, you know we love spending time together both inside and outside of the office. What better way to celebrate summer than a company BBQ! In honor of the longest day of the year, our San Francisco and Portland teams each gathered at a local park to enjoy some rest & relaxation.


Skillzians brought dogs, friends and family to celebrate in the park with a lunch catered by local BBQ restaurants. The delicious food satiated our tummies, and we had the opportunity to spend some quality time with our co-workers and the people (or creatures) that mean the most to them.


During the picnic, Skillzians gathered around and played games including corn hole, kubb, horseshoes, frisbee and football. As a company that values competition, games follow us everywhere we go, and you can be sure we strive to win – even when we’re taking a break from our beloved video games to unplug at the park.



While the San Francisco office competed in games and hung out in the heart of San Francisco, our smaller Portland office enjoyed a (somewhat rare) sunny day in nature. What appears to be a sanctuary deep in the woods was actually just a beautiful park where Skillzians got to grilling.


Our Portland friends brought dogs and friends along with them as well and enjoyed the fresh air, beer, and hot dogs.
