There is a place on the Earth where you will be surrounded by very talented and passionate people who care about what they do and why they do it, who strive to do the best they can every day, who love to be challenged by complex tasks and get excited when they need to do something new and challenging, who will be critical and honest with you but supportive and helpful, who are not perfect and make mistakes sometimes but always try to learn as much as possible from them.
