Who needs caffeine when you have live music to get you through your hump day? A post-lunch, surprise concert from Radio Birds was just what we needed to perk up our work day here at HQ.
From impromptu concerts to amazing work spaces, we can all agree that a unique environment is a must in today’s tech startup world.
Hey, hey it’s Maker Day!
Nothing ends a week better than a good ol’ printing party in the office. Shoppe maker James Anthony stopped into HQ to share his mad screen printing skills with the Scoutmob crew. Our little sneak peak into James’ by-hand screen printing process was a wondrous occasion.
We laughed, we cried, we dyed.
Meet Andy Pittman. He’s the Head of People here at Scoutmob, the Recruiter of Awesomeness if you will. He’s basically the most important Andy in the history of ever (well, if you’re trying to get a job with the Mob anyway). When he’s not vehemently judging you, Pittman can be found making a batch of his famous grass-fed beef jerky or playing back-up guitar for Roscoe Dash and Soulja Boy Tell’em.
Happy Movember! High fives to all our lovely followers committing to the ‘stache this month.
Luke Long: account manager, motivational speaker, and…farmer? That’s right, this mustachioed gentleman is the former owner of 12 chickens and 3 goats, but we wouldn’t suggest asking why that statement is in the past tense. Okay, it was hawks.
Luke has been bringing style and grace to the office since February 2011 (a Valentine’s miracle, they call him). He used to be a medical recruiter, scouting out exceptional people to work in understaffed hospitals until he was introduced to the Mob through another of our fantastic employees, Zopi. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is now scooping at Westside Provisions Shop! We were lucky enough to get a ‘lil taste of the shop’s fall flavor creations last week when they stopped by HQ.
Sweet potato with torched marshmallows, pecan whiskey and black raspberry corn — sounds like a Thanksgiving feast to remember, right? Not quite.
These are just a few of the many munchable ice cream flavors that will be available at the new Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams scoop shop opening up next week in Atlanta’s Westside Provisions District.
Come on out to Scoutmob HQ tomorrow (10/17) at noon to whet your appetite with a free scoop of this cool, creamy goodness. EVERYONE is invited. Yes. We said everyone.
Leatherworker, famous actor, semi-professional pie-eater. This swanky bloke is Barry Greene.
Master ambassador and customer support sorcerer Barry Greene is one of the original Scoutmob five: mobsters that have been with the company since its beginnings in a small, one-bedroom loft apartment. Scoutmob has grown quite a bit over the past few years and has settled nicely into its new, spacious home on Means St. Barry says it feels like an entirely different company but that the laid-back charm hasn’t changed at all. His proudest moment here at Scoutmob? Accepting the challenge to get a totally awesome Scoutmob tattoo. He says he did it because he wanted to, but we all know it was to preserve his job security!
Our annual Halloween party at The Goat Farm is back and more outta-this-world than ever! We’re going to a whole ‘nother cosmic level this year—complete with a 12-ft astronaut puppet, a 36-piece marching band of galactic proportions and spine-tingling art installations.
And of course, dear readers, we’ve got the grub and spirits covered. We’re talking craft beer frozen pints, the best food trucks in town and the premiere of Jailhouse Brewing’s bottled goods (among other blood-curdling cocktails).
So grab your tickets, don your Halloween finery and meet us at the other end of the universe for a night of debauchery. See you (rain or shine) Oct. 26th!
***In case you missed it, take a peep at last year’s shindig to get an idea of the wonderment that is to come this Hallow’s Eve.
