SoundCloud’s offices are designed for collaboration, and there’s a lot of communal space for employees to gather and socialize. With an office drum set and guitars aplenty, the company has cultivated an environment that reflects its mission and company values. It’s a music-centric place, and the open space setup encourages transparency and constant communication.
SoundCloud believes that encouraging employees to develop professionally and personally is a worthwhile investment. People who work at the company enjoy learning new things—and frequently take advantage of training and education opportunities. If an employee wants to take an art class or music lesson, for example, the company covers the cost.
