Berlin Office

We’re happy to welcome every team member to our Berlin office. May that be your permanent work space, or just a brief stop on your travel route.

Access

To access the office you will need one of the following:

  • 1 key for the building entrance
  • 1 key for the office door

OR

  • access to our smart lock system.

Moving forward, no physical keys are handed out but smart lock access is granted.

To lock or unlock the door from the outside, you need to push against the door with your body weight. Opening the unlocked door works without additional force. When leaving the office as the last person, please make sure to close all windows, turn off the lights and lock the door.

Corona Policy

We have our own 2G+ Corona policy at the Berlin office. To use the office you must

  • be fully vaccinated or recovered (and have your certificate submitted to us)
  • AND have a weekly negative test result (we provide self tests in the office for free).

Additionally, please follow our Corona specific hygiene guidelines which are posted in the office.

Desk Policy

If you prefer an exclusive desk, you’re free to choose one of the unoccupied desks. There you can leave your personal items.

Some of our desks are unoccupied and for sharing. Pick one when you come to the office. Just make sure, when leaving, remove all personal items from the shared desk. You may personalise and use one of the drawers for your items.

Technology

Every desk is equipped with at least the following:

  • 1-2 Displays
  • Laptop stand
  • Webcam
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • USB-C Hub

Connect your computer with the USB-C cable. To use multiple displays you need to install the DisplayLink Manager. All other devices should be working without additional drivers. Your computer should be charging without an additional charger.

When in a call please use a headset with noise cancelling technology to avoid distractions for others. We’ve made good experiences with the Plantronics Blackwire 5220 Headset (USB-C). If you don’t have one yet, get one and file an expense report.

Drinks

We provide sparkling and non-sparkling water, a selection of juices and soft drinks and beer, as well as non-alcoholic beer for free. Additionally we have a cappuccino machine (see tutorial video), a filter coffee machine and a selection of teas.

Lunch

We encourage everyone to stand up from their desks or even go out for lunch to take a thorough mental break. There are many opportunities within a 5 minute walking radius – burgers, pasta, pizza, asian noodles, curry wurst, sandwiches, etc. We have a fully-stocked kitchen with stove top, microwave, pots and pans, kettle, cutting boards, etc., so if you‘d like to bring a meal to reheat, or just a big bag of groceries, there are many options available to you.
