Four times a year, all of zulily tech stows away our current project work and we engineers get to hack on whatever we want all day Friday (though, sometimes teams have so much fun they roll through the weekend). Come Monday, we present our projects to the entire company and someone is crowned the Hack Day Champion by our CEO (along with shiny, shiny trophy bling to decorate the winners desk).
Over the last four years, in fact, many of of the zulily features on our site today originated as zulily Hack Day ideas. Go engineers!
This last Hack Day, we took a video camera around to capture some of the zulily culture and the fun we have!
