By giving its team constant autonomy, SXSW has built a robust office community and culture of creative freedom. Christine appreciates SXSW’s flexibility and its openness in letting employees work from home, but she finds that its culture—combined with constant opportunities to interact with exceptional artists and innovators like Al Gore, Yoko Ono, and Duran Duran—keeps employees excited and inspired to get into the office.

Though her priorities might differ depending on the time of year and festival in question, Christine begins her mornings at the office, checking for new submissions in the SXSW festival submission program, Panel Picker. After getting a handle on her day’s priorities, Christine answers e-mails and checks in with her team to make sure they’re confident in their tasks and meeting their production deadlines.
