This is a post by Michael, lead developer at PAYMILL
How do you know you’re working in the right place? When you’re enjoying tasks you normally hate, as long as you do them with the team!
In this particular case I’m talking about painting walls. As we moved to our new Munich office on Friday, some walls needed color and so we all came together in the evening, jumped into amazingly sexy painter overalls, grabbed some brushes and got started. The pictures below give you a small impression of the great evening we had while doing this and in the end the walls looked really good (Special thanks goes to Boris and Max who fixed all the flaws we others made).
And yes, we painted one wall black: this is our dark room – our internal conference room to make the really big and secret decisions. So if you are one of our competitors, the US government or a jealous wife/husband – this is the room where you have to place the bugs in.
So, thank you team for making this work fun and thank you PAYMILL for the great barbecue on the rooftop terrace afterwards.
Welcome to the new office – this is just the developers part
Two people working, two people “managing” – that’s a good average
This is me, obviously it is impossible to look good in these overalls…
….damn! it isn’t 🙁
Ready for action !
At this point they smiled, then I told them, that there are 5 more walls to come.
Co-founder Mark seems to enjoy painting (or the color) a lot.
This picture is posed. No one actually saw co-founder Jörg painting 😉
The dark room – almost finished.
Honestly the best part – barbecue on our rooftop terrace. Great food with great people.
