Diversity and Equality at HappyPorch in 2020

In October 2019 we started measuring our equality and diversity. This was prompted by our work towards fulfilling the requirements for B Corp certification. One of the benefits of the process is focussing on ourselves and our practices. We have been aware of our apparent lack of diversity for some time and have been working towards creating a more diverse team, particularly i ...

A Proper Boss Meetup

Back in October it was time again for our second team meetup this year. This time the HappyPorch team came together in Liverpool to spend a week together. Since Mark, one of our team members, is a native Liverpudlian, he was able to prepare us well before the trip itself, even throwing in some helpful videos to help us understand the local dialect (you might see where this pos ...

Celebrating our rebrand

After a year of planning and living the actions we finally transformed from Endzone.io Ltd to HappyPorch. This better reflects our current identity and where we want to go in the future. We changed the company name,logo and launched this new website. If interested where this new, happy name came from, here is an article about it.  We felt the need to share the beauty of change ...

So, why are we called HappyPorch?

We get asked this question a surprising amount, or at least it’s surprising to me.  We love our quirky name and enjoy numerous word plays for a number of our internal projects. Yet, it is still a little surprising and gratifying when others are intrigued by the name itself. A little company history Way back in 1999, when I was even younger than I am now (blush), I registered ...

Le Grande Meetup, France!

From various parts of the world, the HappyPorch team disembarked at Geneva airport, Switzerland. The first 2019 company meetup was about to commence, and the excitement leaped to exceptional heights. For some HappyPorchians, like myself, it was the first opportunity to connect with fellow team members outside the bounds of a virtual network, allowing them to express their pres ...

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. The meetup officially started on Monday, but ...

A week in Prague

“I work remotely” is something that I’ve gotten used to saying since I joined HappyPorch exactly a year ago. I dislike that phrase. I dislike it because it conjures images of beach life and digital nomadism, and that’s really not the case. Not for me anyway. The HappyPorch team are indeed distributed across the world; from the UK to Australia, Brazil, and a few places in-betwee ...

Plastic Free July – two voices from the team

Plastic Free July – TomWhen 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. So to s ...
