A pool table, with felt in the company’s signature purple, is next to the chairs in the visitors’ waiting area. Employees mill about with laptops, collaborating and chatting.
“One of the things that’s been really important to Walmart since day one … was making sure we created a path forward that let Jet be Jet,” Jet.com President Liza Landsman told Business Insider.
Take a look around Jet’s headquarters.
Jet's headquarters are in Hoboken, New Jersey, just a quick train ride across the river from Manhattan.
Occupying the 7th and 8th floors of a building in downtown Hoboken, the office has spectacular views.
Every visit to Jet HQ starts at the reception desk, where you sign in on an iPad. It prompts you to take a selfie.
Jet's fun-loving culture is immediately apparent from the start. A purple-felted pool table stands near the entrance.
The company has a tight-knit staff. 'I laugh more during the hour of my staff meeting than during any other hour of the week,' Jet.com President Liza Landsman said.
Kristin Reilly, VP of global people experience for Jet.com and Walmart, said the company has three core values: trust, transparency, and fairness.
The snack drawer is full. All of the snacks that are up for grabs here are also offered for sale on Jet.
The Fortress of Solitude, for example, provides a quiet place to take a call or chat with coworkers.
Other areas are themed after the office's New Jersey home, like this mural that shows Hoboken native Frank Sinatra's mug shots.
Since there's so much moving around in the office -- from switching desks to just picking up your laptop and walking to a communal area -- lockers offer a place to stash your stuff.
Jet takes no pains to hide its Walmart affiliation. Hanging on the wall is a painting that was given to Jet following the acquisition, showing Walmart's first store.
Other odds and ends from Jet's short history are also on display. The goal of the site, which e-commerce pioneer Marc Lore founded in 2015, was to shake up a crowded online marketplace and take on Amazon. It sold to Walmart just 13 months later.
The rooms are named after the sounds your brain supposedly makes while thinking. This is inside the so-called 'snap' room.
