Geek Warriors

What is Geek Warriors?

  
At eHire we want to be a part of the MOVEment by providing a platform for technologists to exercise, socialize, and encourage one another through our pursuits of mental and physical wellbeing. In short, we want to help you THRIVE!

Living in the technology ecosystem takes a lot of work of the cranial variety. The time we spend architecting, creating, making, building, testing, implementing and deploying super cool and necessary technologies can drain our minds and leave us mentally and physically exhausted.
 
Like you, we love what we do and work very hard to do it – often seated on our butts, behind a display for A. Very. Long. Time.
  
  

Why? What's the Problem?

How will we Fix it?
  
So happy you asked. In fact, we’ve already started!
 
In January we purchased FitBits for our entire company. If you have a FitBit, you can join our community on the FitBit page “Geek Warriors”. We would love to have you compete with us!
 
On March 8th, we Geek Warriors proudly displayed our horns at the Annual Spartan Sprint – a very challenging and bone chilling 5 mile obstacle course in Conyers. This was our very first Geek Warriors fitness event, and set the stage for many events to come!

What's Next?

  
The first event was a “lab” with eHire employees only. Now, we are ready to roll it out to our friends and partners with our Spring Event – Take the Hill! We would be thrilled to have you join us for a fun filled day at Stone Mountain Park, where the “keynote” event will be a dash from our The Virginia Picnic pavilion to the Mountain trail up, down and back to the pavilion (in the range of 3.5 - 4 miles) at your own pace. This event is $35, and you will receive a complimentary Geek Warriors T-Shirt!
