Is anyone still there?

Winterfest @1&1 Hello, survivors of the Apocalypse party!

On behalf of the Process and Delivery Management Romania team, I want to tell you a few words about our experience in organizing the best End of the World seen so far.

After being voted as organizers, it all started with a team brainstorming in order to determine what theme we wanted to use for the party, then, other few meetings began to shape things.

There are only 14 days until Christmas! That should cheer you up!

The 1&1 Internet Development Christmas Tree arrived, and has already been lovely decorated. It looks amazing!
This afternoon was a great one, as we, the 1&1 colleagues, enjoyed “the task” of decorating the company’s Christmas Tree.
Get a glimpse of our favorite moments.

Cross country – on the 4th of November

1&1 and its partner in environmental activities (Viitor Plus) invited us to run at ChCrosul Paduriiildren’s Forest for a special cause (plant one tree for every new born).

Some of our colleagues accepted the challenge, and on Sunday morning they were ready to start running. We’ve had participants at the 3 km race, but most of them signed up for the 10 km race.

The atmosphere was great and the weather was on our side. My colleague Magda captured the entire event in a few beautiful words: “I did not think so many people would come on a Sunday morning to run and enjoy nature. It is like an oasis of normality …”.

Vlad was pleasantly surprised by the organization team, by the large number of participants, and the location event gave him the opportunity to explore the Tineretului Lake.

3 Days To Change Your Mindset

The tekom annual conference is the largest global event for technical communication. Organized in the pure German way (that means: perfectly), the conference is a best opportunity for specialists all over the world to get in touch with each other, learn from each other and define together new trends for the industry.

Last month 1&1 offered me the chance to attend this event. Since this was my first participation, I didn’t know what to expect. I was told the conference would be big, but I wasn’t able to imagine the dimensions of it, and the impact it would have.

Linux Filemonitor released as Free Software by 1&1

We, at 1&1, are using Free Software in almost all aspects of our work, and we are happy when we can even contribute to the Free Software community.

Linux Filemonitor is the first software to be released under GPLv2 by the Romanian Linux Development Core team.

Linux Filemonitor (or linux-filemon) is an experimental kernel patch developed by 1&1 which provides dentry-based file event notifications for the entire virtual filesystem.

Why could this be of any interest?

Because it’s the missing piece of Linux for scalable

It’s good to be back!

Although a foreign languages graduate, I must admit, when it comes to writing I am not in the top ten list, maybe also due to the fact that I was raised by two engineers…

Well, when there’s a will, there’s a way… so, I will try to survive this task in one piece. 🙂

When I first came to 1&1 I found myself lost in an unfamiliar and weird world… the corporate environment. After having worked for almost fifteen years in a medium sized Romanian company, where everybody knew everybody and the wages were paid cash – because the financial manager hated the idea of people losing money with bank commissions 🙂 – I ended up in a world, where one could be found on the intranet, where

Pizza Day @1&1

Today is Wednesday, so, it’s Pizza Day for all 1&1 employees.

What is Pizza Day? What does it mean to 1&1?
Pizza Day is a tradition that started 5 years ago. It takes place every Wednesday (or Thursday if Wednesday is not possible due to the football tournament matches for example).

Who organizes it?
In the beginning it was Stela and also Vlad who took care of this and during the last 4 years Andrei has managed to organize it successfully.

Why do people order?
There are people who order because of the

Recycling. Does it Still Matter?

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Is Recycling still matter?
With so much focus on other priorities, has this activity lost its value?

“We should recycle!” This is how it started.“Everyday we are able to gather more than one big bag with plastic bottles on every floor, we should do more.”

And questions appeared one after another: “Who recycles in our town?”, “Where can we find them?”, ”Where would we put all these bags until the recycle company comes to take them?”, “We need a special bin for collecting the plastic.”

And questions came and so the answers. Soon the yellow bins were placed into the kitchens, on every floor. The “How to” was designed by a

My summer with 1&1

Luiza F. is studying at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology within the Polytechnical University of Bucharest. During this summer she attended our internship programme for the internal marketing position, and she wrote the following article in order to summarize the interns’ experience with 1&1:

The summer vacation: a time to rest; a time when you recover after a long year of hard work. A time when you look behind and realize there is only one year left of

Trainee Experience @1&1 Internet Development

In this blog post we interview our Product Management Trainee in the Mail & Media department. Tautvydas is Lithuanian; he is working in Romania as a trainee for a period of six months. He is sharing insights into the common struggles a traineeship abroad has. You’ll learn what to focus your efforts on and a few simple best practices.

How did it work? Did you choose Romania and 1&1 especially for the Trainee Program (or is it the other way around, 1&1 has chosen you)?

I was looking for an internship abroad through the AIESEC network (an international student organization), and found an interesting offer at 1&1 Development Romania. Thus, I applied for this position, then I had an
