Weekly Wrap Up - Ice cream day. It's a thing.

I scream. You scream. Did someone scream ice cream? Yes, yes, 1000x YES. Oh, no, you screamed “we need to deliver the mechanical hardware revisions by noon today." Gotcha. Sorry. Well, because it's on our mind...

If you’re one of 38 people who read this blog or are one of 36 Spheroites who proof this blog for errors, you know ice cream day is easily everyone’s favourite day around here...even if it falls on a Monday. Because if anything can turn a Monday around, it's ice cream.

Every other week our windows need a bit of extra cleaning from the fingerprint residue Spheroites leave behind, as they eagerly anticipate the arrival of a little brown truck of happiness. Yes, the angels who fly (or safely drive) the Sweet Cow Moo-Mobile to our office park and endure the bum-rush of humans looking to be saved from their 2pm meetings are heaven-sent. With flavours like frosted oatmeal cookie, coconut sorbet, carrot cake and s’mores, sweet salvation is served to all far and wide. Or at least within the confines of our parking lot.


Can ice cream buy happiness? A small, independently-funded study of our office would say so. And we’re willing to bet you’d agree, too.


May your week be filled with much happiness, whatever flavour that may be (unless it’s rum-raisin…maybe try something else).


A Day In The Life: Camille Check

Weekly Wrap Up - Ice cream day. It's a thing.

Q. Why hello, there. Can you tell us who you are and what your title is here?

A. Camille Check, Sales Analyst.

Q. And what exactly do you do here at Sphero?

A. I make sure our sales team is selling robots in the right places!

Q. Can’t have any of our bots in shady places. What advice can you impart for someone who’s looking to get into the same thing?

A. Be perceptive, intuitive, find solutions, and take action!

Q. I feel like that should be knitted somewhere. Can you share what you’re currently working on?

A. Currently, I am helping to prepare for a big upcoming meeting and managing our sales data day in and day out!

Q. That’s a lot of action to keep track of. So what is your favourite aspect of working at Sphero? Ice cream day is pretty sweet (see what I did there?) so if it’s that, I get it.

A. I LOVE ice cream day.  I also love the array of people and backgrounds that I get to work with every day.

Q. FINALLY someone agrees with ice cream day. Thank you for not holding back. Let’s keep this going—which of our bots is your fave?

A. I love BB-8!  He has a very sweet, little personality and he likes to hang out.

Q. He’s a pretty chill little dude. Ok, how do you chill outside of Sphero?

A. I love yoga and enjoying the beautiful outdoors that Colorado has to offer!  Most importantly, I love great food, sharing it with my wonderful family, and watching my 2 year old enjoy life!

Q. Also another cool little dude. What do you and your family love about living in Colorado (besides all the things)?

A. The people are so real! I love how laid back and welcoming the community is. I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Q. That warms my polycarbonate-shelled heart. Go on—brag about this place some more. Tell me a place I gotta check out.

A. Rosalee's pizzeria in Longmont!

Q. Love me some ‘za. One last question—tell me something about yourself that will blow my mind. Or at least that I will find unexpected.

A. I failed swimming lessons as a child...multiple times.
