How does a typical day at your office in Darmstadt look like?
Here at the tech hub, we work very, very focused.
Everybody who came here from the office in Cologne to work with us for a short period of time, they noticed that here, there are no distractions.
So, when someone new wants to understand our day to day work, what is happening at the office is that we are sitting here, very focused, pushing forward new technologies all the time with a bunch of challenges every day.
But you also get to take advantage of the rooftop?
Working on the rooftop is always an option at tech Hub in Darmstadt.
Yes, definitely! It’s not that we are just focused all day, but when we sit at the computer, we are very focused and don’t get interrupted. One thing we inherited from Cologne is a very interesting work-pleasure balance. Just like in Cologne, we have a kicker table here, but we have other options too. We can go outside on the rooftop to have a meeting or just a chat. Some days I study by watching tech talks on YouTube. I can go outside with my laptop and focus on receiving that knowledge – instead of being at my desk. It almost feels like I am sitting on a sofa at home or on my balcony.
That certainly breaks the idea of companies always having a rough working environment, here it is nothing like that.
It’s very much a start-up feeling you have.
