Our Berlin office
We moved to our new office in 2015, and it’s just awesome! Lots of team rooms, shared space and meeting rooms in various sizes. We then added a bit more paint, polish, and furniture, and think the results speak for themselves. Let’s take you on a small tour!
The Tea Kitchen
This is where our coffee machine is located – directly opposite the entrance. Make your own espresso or latte (or tea) before heading into the office.
The Red Saloon
The previous tenants had turned this room into a bar, so we kept the speak-easy style. Relax, drink that espresso, enjoy the crazy red, and get ready for work!
Turn to the right and you enter our “industrial” room. This is informally the CEO office, but quite often you’ll find Andy doing customer support, our our international visitors like Linda, Tore or Scott here.
Once we have enough staff to form a fourth Dev team, they’ll be housed here. Did we mention we’re hiring?
This is the home of Team Green. It’s also our brightest and largest room, so you’ll often find our office manager Denie here. Since it’s so spacious we frequently place applicants here on their two trial days.
Learn more about this room’s inhabitants on the Team Green page.
This room connects the two original units that compose our office. The inhabitants, Team Techno, ensure that every passer-by gets their daily dose of electronic music.
Here’s where we relax, read a book, or just hang out. We hold our weekly Dev Exchange meeting and our monthly All-Hands meetings in the living room too.
We avoid regular and dull meetings, but we do enjoy the intense kind of meetings a lot.
Thanks to the TV this is also where most Hangouts with the San Francisco team take place.
Weekly 1:1 meetings between team lead and team member are crucial to address concerns early on. In addition, this room doubles as pair programming cubicle.
While the espresso machine is in the Tea Kitchen, the “real” kitchen is where we occasionally cook or have breakfast together, or just sit down for a chat.
At the very end of the office you’ll find Team Outlaw. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of the front-facing rooms, this is typically our most quiet room, and you’ll find the highest ratio of skunkwork projects here too.
Our storage room doubles as Demo Booth and emergency exit. It’s tiny but offers some of the best views.

The Berlin office is very development-heavy, so it hosts our 3 dev teams, and you’ll find Andy from the customer facing team. Also, our “meta team” of designers lives here.
This team formed on our 2015 company trip. 4 people frequently working on backend tasks, and very MVP and Kanban-centric.More about Team Techno
Located at the end of a loooong corridor and removed from the hustle and bustle of the other dev teams, this is our very ReactJS focused team.More about Team Outlaw
We’re a completely remote team. Only Andy works in the Berlin HQ, everyone else works from home, meaning we’re even more reliant than everyone else on using our tools efficiently.More about the Customer Team
