    I worked at TokBox full-time (More than 3 years)


    I have been Tokbox for over 3 years. Tokbox is a great place to work and the office environment is really family based. Everyone is like a family member. As an individual contributor, we have flexibility to choose our own project. We also got free snacks, fruits, milk and free lunch. I will definitely my friends to work for Tokbox and we have great leading edge technology so people can learn more stuff too.


    Not too much meat dishes for lunch. But its free so no complains.

    Advice to Management
