An Insider's view of Studio X

What's something quirky about your company?

When we didn't have a name for the company, we called it Pluto. Today employees are called plutos as a nod to the past. Each week we name a "Pluto of the Week" to recognize someone or give what we call "kudos" for crushing it.

Christie Post

Marketing Guru

What projects are you most excited about?

The projects I am most excited about use innovative technology to develop new ways of working. For example, Studio X allows renewable energy projects to move quickly, matching state-of-the-art technology with the right talent. The impact of meeting aggressive Energy demands in this space is felt immediately and is very rewarding

Alice Hildick

Program Director, XCover

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who has strong opinions, which are loosely held. They encourage dissent even just for the sake of argument and celebrate the individuals who push the team's thinking. They're also willing to raise their hand to pitch in whether they're the expert or not.

Paul Genberg

Interim CEO & Head of Product

What are some social events your company does?

We have a weekly happy hour (currently virtual) where the "Pluto of the Week" gets to pick the theme. Sometimes we play games like Codenames or discuss our favorite Disney movies. One time we pulled up live streams from zoos and animal sanctuaries around the world for a Zoom Safari!
