Hello fellow movers and shakers,
Following a hiatus, the Builders Newsletter is back in circulation! We are bigger and busier than ever and are firmly on the expansion path, with our team growing by five new studio members in the last quarter alone. As is expected with new additions, we are in the process of embracing and integrating diverse cultures amidst us. From the way of work, to lunch-table discussions, we at Builders are truly going global. With our venture Obeyo rapidly approaching launch, the studio is in all-hands-on-deck mode and is looking to expand our team further with several key positions waiting to be filled by driven individuals with an entrepreneurial mindset.
We are proud to share our new team members and their role within the studio:
