In our new series #wirsindcatworkx we introduce you to our individual locations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and give you an insight into our offices. We will start today at our headquarters in Hamburg.
Our office in Hamburg
Our Hamburg office is located on the 8th floor of the so-called Silo, in the heart of Harburg’s inland harbour, directly on the waterfront. Over the years, the inland port has developed into a “mixed area” with residential quarters and commerce. In between: restaurants and other shopping facilities. The silo was built back in the thirties and was used to store grain and oilseeds for the production of margarine (#funfact). In 2004 the building was extensively renovated and since then the building shines in new splendour. The office building not only offers spectacular views over the harbour, it also attracts many glances due to its special architecture.
The central main entrance at Schellerdamm 16 can be reached by elevator – motivated colleagues also take the stairs! 🙂 – to the 8th floor and so to our premises.
With 50 employees, our Hamburg location is the largest of all catworkx locations. Here, colleagues from different disciplines sit together on one level. If you walk along the U-shape of the office, you will find our Atlassian experts, trainers, developers and licensing specialists, the editorial team and marketing experts, our internal IT, the sales department, our HR manager and the accounting department – and in the middle, of course, our managing directors – affectionately known as skippers. The paths with us are short and the doors are usually open. In our offices we work with several people.
We have been sitting in the Silo for 15 years now – we feel comfortable here and will probably stay there for a while.
Feel free to look around to get a better idea!
