Hell Bent for Leather
This Monday we moved into our new home in Leather Lane, Farringdon.
We’re still slowly settling in: the smell of fresh paint is fading, everybody is busy unpacking boxes and pimping their desks, and we almost have Internet connectivity [insert Virgin broadband installation rant of your choice here, grrrr!] – which is handy for a web software company.
We’ve been lucky enough recently to share great facilities with amazing companies like The Foundation & RKCR Y&R, but it’s great to be in back our own space again. Our very first office was in Leather Lane back in 2011 and we loved it here, so it’s great to come full circle.
When we first started out in 2011 we were a team of three in London and four more based in Zurich, not only has that total number grown to seventeen (and counting!) but we have also now re-located the majority of our engineering from Zurich to London – you sprint faster when you’re all in one place we’ve decided.
The new office space is ideal for the EVRYTHNG team. Aside from the open plan space, we also have a dedicated boardroom to meet with customers (who we’re happy to say are increasing in numbers), a break-out area, project ‘War Room’, and a small but perfectly formed kitchen where we store our loaves and Marmite (believe us, it’s what the IoT is being built on).
We’re also excited that our office will soon house a demo space where people can come in and play with the latest IoT demo’s we’ve built, amongst other cool stuff. It’s very much a work in progress at the moment but watch this space…
In the meantime if you’re in the area and feel like saying hi, you are most welcome to pop in for a coffee – which will be served to you by tweeting your order to our coffee machine. Obviously! 😉
