Our Happy Porto Meetup
🎶 “Another meetup over, another one will soon begin, and so Happy Porch Christmas ….” 🎶
Too early for Christmas-themed introductions? Forgive me, the Happy Porch team recently returned from another meetup, this time from sunny (yet surprisingly cold) Porto, and I’m still riding high on the energy and excitement generated from it.
Donate instead of gifts
As we are a fully distributed team, our values are what tie us together. Sometimes cool things happen that allow us to connect with other’s values too. We recently had an inspirational connection with PagerTree that allowed us to follow our mission of contributing and supporting actions that can positively impact the world.
Plastic Free July – two voices from the team
Plastic Free July – Tom.
When Simone asked the rest of the team about taking part in Plastic Free July, I did think it would be a good and interesting challenge.Convincing my wife Jenny to take part as well wasn’t hard, since we’re both increasingly more aware of the environmental impact that the products we buy have, and we already try to find more sustainable options.
Diversity: where we are and where we’d like to be
We firmly believe that diverse teams are better teams. To us “better” in this context means a team that is more fun, more rewarding, creates better products together and has a more positive impact on the world we live in. All of that is fundamental to our purpose as a company and a team.
