An Insider's view of Urbint

What are some social events your company does?

The Urbint team works hard and plays hard together. We recently hosted a brand launch event for our team, families, and friends at a stunning rooftop in SoHo with 360-views of NYC. We also do monthly events (think: cooking classes, sporting events, referral competitions with major cash prizes) and often after a day of work we celebrate with drinks.
