Survived my first week at nsquared. Initial signs are good :-)
Rather than prattle on about how awesome my new employer is, how weâ€™re going to take over the world, how Iâ€™m the working with an exceptional team etc, etc, I thought Iâ€™d share a few insights into the company.
nsquared is a startup (Iâ€™ve never worked for a startup before) and as such itâ€™s going through changes quickly. Itâ€™ll be interesting to look back on these posts in the coming months to see how things evolve.
Hereâ€™s a few photos and videos of the office. Weâ€™re in at 109 Pitt Street, in the heart of the Sydney CBD. Feel free to drop in and say hi if you are nearby.
First, our office on level 6, with meeting room and hardware testing.
Hereâ€™s a walk through of level 6
Then up to level 8 where the dev team beaver away. This is reasonably new, only a month ago the team were crammed into the level 6 digs.
Hereâ€™s a quick walkthrough
As a startup, weâ€™re watching every penny (not that you shouldnâ€™t anyway!) so thereâ€™s no Herman Miller chairs or big offices for everyone just yet! But weâ€™re well stocked where it counts: hardware. No slow machines here.
Youâ€™ll notice thereâ€™s a few spare desks. Thatâ€™s because weâ€™re planning on growing. In fact Iâ€™m looking for 3 senior developers already. More on the requirements in a later post â€“ but feel free to shoot me through an email if youâ€™re a top notch .NET developer looking for something exciting to sink your teeth into.
