Today, five SIG developers visited Lower Merion High School to mentor 24 teams from 9 area schools during the CodeLM Programming Competition. Our technologists also served as judges for the competition, where students were tasked with solving a variety of programming problems in 2.5 hours. Our prizes for the winning teams included Arduino and Makey Makey kits. Congrats to all of the students!

Holiday party season was in full swing this year with parties at each of our SIG offices. In Sydney, we went with a 70s theme and some fun photo ops. We dressed to impress in Dublin while we sipped on unique craft cocktails. In NY and Chicago, we enjoyed games and lots of laughs. And in Bala, we were treated to our amazing annual sushi bar and even a little breakdancing. Wishing a very happy holiday season to our SIG team around the globe!

The holidays are a great time around the SIG offices as we support our employees in contributing to their favorite charitable drives. This year, our employees donated hundreds of toys to Toys for Tots, the Saint Vincent de Paul Christmas Toy Appeal, The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, and The Smith Family Toy and Book Appeal. In Bala, we also sponsored 20 local families in need as part of Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Adopt-A-Family program, fulfilling basic needs and holiday wishes. Supporting these worthwhile organizations definitely put us in the holiday spirit!

Last week, we joined with Code.org to promote the global “Hour of Code.” The Hour of Code introduces the basics of coding and computer science to children to help nurture problem solving and creativity. We invited employees at each of our offices to take home a custom SIG laptop cling with instructions on how to kick off an hour of coding with a child in their life.

Our love of competition was on display at SIG’s annual Under 30 vs. Over 30 Soccer Match. It was a chilly morning, but with another year of excellent play from our SIG players, both teams powered through in a hard fought match. For the second year in a row, the Over 30 team took home the win with a score of 2-1. Congratulations!

Team SIG took part in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Sydney’s beautiful Centennial Park. The 5.6km run had a record-breaking year with over 8,000 runners from 341 companies participate. The race raises money for the Indigenous Marathon Project and we had a great time being a part of the evening!

Today we welcomed our SIG kids to stop by the office (in costume!) for some Halloween celebrations. Our Dublin party featured spooky decorations and entertainment from a magician, and our Bala party came complete with all the treats we could handle. After the festivities, it was time for a little office trick-or-treating. Happy Halloween!

We recently took a quick trip over to King Street Wharf in Sydney for a fun social event at the bowling alley. Our SIG teams went head-to-head in a little friendly competition to see who would take home the titles of best team and champion bowler! While only a few were victorious, we’re happy to report that Team SIG threw quite a few strikes that night! Thanks to all who came out.

We’re excited to be recognized by Philadelphia Magazine as one of Philly’s Coolest Companies for 2015. Keep reading for our entry into the contest, and see why we believe SIG is a pretty great place to work.
At SIG, we really care about our employees. We know it’s hard to balance work and life, so we offer pretty amazing perks. We dress casually (including shorts all summer long). We have catered breakfast and lunch daily from places like Circles Thai, Di Bruno Bros, Chick-fil-A, and Qdoba. Our brand new on-site gym and fitness classes are employee favorites.
For our gamers, our Game Room is stocked with the latest video games, classic arcade games, ping pong, pool, and poker tables, just to name a few. Our online shopping enthusiasts really appreciate our full-service mailroom. Our other on-site offerings, like auto repair, dry cleaning, and free EV chargers, are constantly updated by our Employee Services Concierge. And whether you want advice on healthy living or think you have the flu, our on-site Wellness Center is here to help.
SIG’s employee event schedule is impressive. Some of our favorites: a global poker tournament (with a $15,000 prize), Night at the Ballpark (complete with loaded tickets for all of the crab fries and FedNuts you can handle), Family Fun Night (this year we took over the Philly Zoo), run/walks on the Parkway, and our annual holiday party. Plus, we bring in famous speakers like Nate Silver, Sam Hinkie, the Winklevoss twins, and Annie Duke.
We believe that working at SIG is more than just a job.

We had a great morning with our families amongst the 2,000 runners at the Simon Fun Run. The 5 mile race benefits the Dublin Simon Community, an organization that works to prevent and address homelessness in Dublin and the surrounding areas. It was our third year participating in the run, and for the second year in a row, the same runner led the Team SIG pack. Next year, the competition is on!
