Jam City Teams Up With Habitat For Humanity To Help Build Three Homes


At Jam City, we play as a team and we believe that collaboration leads to innovation. We work together—wherever and whenever possible—to ensure that our collective expertise and inclusive culture is reflected in everything we do.

On Friday, August 3, members of Jam City’s Los Angeles HQ, led by President and co-founder Josh Yguado, teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to work on three of the ten homes being built in Culver City, CA.

The Jam City volunteers worked alongside Jemeel and his wife Lauri, who are the future homeowners of one of the 10 units, and tackled a variety of jobs throughout the day including joist blocking, constructing walls and raising a roof.

“Habitat was great!  It was so fun working alongside my co-workers and the families alike; it really felt like we were making a difference — right in Jam City’s backyard!” – Simone Heard, Talent Recruiter.

According to Habitat for Humanity, homeowners put 500-600 hours of sweat equity into their home before they move in and Jam City’s team members got a taste of the hard work that goes into building a forever home.

“Habitat was great because I could immediately see the impact of our hard work. We were lucky enough to work with one of the recipients of the houses and quite literally helped build their roof…all in a day’s work!” – Chelsea Robbins, Technical Recruiter.

We’d like to extend a big thank you to Habitat for Humanity for allowing Jam City to be part of this incredible experience. When we work together, great things can be built.
