1&1 Internet Development moves to Sky Tower to provide its employees the best workplace on the market
1&1 Internet Development a wholly-owned subsidiary of 1&1 Group, the leading European internet specialist, is relocating its offices to Sky Tower, one of the most modern office buildings in Bucharest, a new landmark of the capital city. The software development center established in 2003 in Romania, with almost 300 active employees at this moment, is considered by media and employer branding studies, as one of the companies that made a significant leap forward in 2014 “Top 20 companies to work for in the IT industry” study, thanks to their recent actions that support the general employee satisfaction.
This move also aims at creating better working conditions and building a work environment around the most important asset of the company: employees.
“We were looking for an environment to meet two conditions: firstly, to meet our group’s standards in terms of quality of working space and in the same time to provide our employees in Romania the best conditions for boosting their potential within a great working environment. I think that this is a great way of telling our employees that the company appreciates and respects their work and rewards it with a state of the art working place, too”, said Wolfgang Gunne, General Manager 1&1 Internet Development.
The relocation has been completed on December 15th, when all the staff of 1&1 has occupied 3 floors of the Sky Tower building on Calea Floreasca 246C.
“SkyTower is a modern and efficient building and a new architectural symbol of Bucharest, changing not only the city’s skyline, but also the perspective on office space characteristics in the heart of the capital. We are delighted with the relocation of 1&1 Internet Development in SkyTower and the chance to offer our services to all of our existing and future clients. We focus on customer satisfaction and strive to improve employee experience as much as possible. We even provide employees in the building with a wonderful discount card, a singular product in Bucharest, which offers attractive discounts in various partner stores in the shopping areas nearby. We are confident that the offices will meet all expectations of 1&1 Internet Development and we look forward to a beautiful partnership,” said Ruxandra Grinzeanu, General Manager SkyTower Building.
With own recreation rooms and small-professional cafeterias inside the office space, with an innovative climate control system that uses only fresh air(no air re-usage), with parking spaces for cars, bicycle racks and having even own showers, with more and easier to reach side activities such as shopping, eateries or leisure facilities, the company is interested to provide employees the best workplace on the market.
Commuting to SkyTower is also easy, as the building is very close to the subway station Aurel Vlaicu, has access to large boulevards and the number of bus/tram stops in the near vicinity facilitate any travel plans.
“Work at 1&1 Internet Development is fascinating for any software developer thanks to the products we develop, technologies we use and a great team making it all possible. Now, thanks to this relocation, it becomes more enjoyable than ever”, Wolfgang Gunne said.
1&1 Internet Development thus completes a new leg in the maturity process, following extensive recruiting campaigns during the last 3 years. The company plans to keep recruiting high level IT specialists(Software Developer, Software Architect, System Architect, Quality Engineer, User Experience Designer, Operations Engineer, Product Owner, Business Engineer, Scrum Master, Delivery Manager) for certain technologies and competencies, in order to best respond to global trends on internet development.
