In the previous month we not only participated in industry events but even launched our own format! Apart from that, we run, cycle, read, and constantly look for new talents to empower our team. Busy time, huh?
Got 20 minutes? Invest them in Merix in 20 minutes
#beforepandemic, we were known for our work and also for memorable events: Py_tej, Pumex, Front.radar... oh, those were excellent times. However, the time has come to refresh our knowledge-sharing formula and create an entirely new format for a live event. The task was quite a big challenge because many events moved online, and we wondered for a while how to do something extra, which will be an unconventional formula, but also not without a solid dose of knowledge?
This is how "Merix in 20 minutes" was created: an utterly condensed knowledge pill for developers that you can watch and comment live on Merixstudio's YouTube and LinkedIn, and then - fortunately - watch the recording once again. Ola Dondziak from EB Team and Miłosz Kusiciel, our well-known Head of Technology, and 14 fuckups in the programmer's work: please make yourself comfortable and click the "play" button.
Recruitment hunger: now with new salary ranges :)
Various projects, exciting benefits, a well-coordinated team, and a friendly recruitment process with valuable feedback are not enough for you? Are you still wondering whether it's worth joining Merixstudio? We are constantly looking for the most powerful minds for our teams, and in May you probably had the opportunity to see our recruitment campaign on social media. We targeted posts to DevOps Engineer, UX Designer, and Mobile Developer positions, where catchy slogans went hand in hand with an interesting note: "Now with new salary ranges". It is even more interesting to get interested in our careers page, where you will find all open recruitment processes and answers to the most significant questions.
We share our knowledge: this time about Employer Branding
We love what we do, and we talk a lot about our work; so why not take advantage of it "after hours" and tell about Merixstudio, our achievements, and patents for being a good employer and... change management in the recruitment process?
At the Poznań edition of EBMASTERS online, events gathering a community of people who are mad about Employer Branding, Marita Szweryn, our IT Recruitment Specialist, had her 5 minutes. Well, not even 5, but over 20, during which she captivated the audience with her speech "Are you recruiting or are you already recruited?" based on examples taken alive from our backyard and from her professional experience.
Always moving forward
Sport at Merixstudio has always meant a lot for us, including the annual participation in the Business Run. Last year the event was held in remote mode, so when someone said: "hey, are we running this year?!" - we began registration. It quickly turned out that four teams consisting of five people each is not enough because the places have spread as fresh rolls, so this year there will be as many as five Merix teams. Please keep your fingers crossed for us; although the run takes place in September, we are already starting training. SLOWLY STARTING :P
Since we have Worksmile, our cafeteria, and a benefits management platform, we can also face team challenges every month: in sport and less-sport competitions. We summed up our April struggle, and you know what? We are very proud of our results:
In April, we registered our activities over 1250 times! Our team spent 805 hours being active and 340 hours reading fantastic books. Do you know that at this time, we could read the whole Middle Earth saga 7 times?
4,679 km - that's our distance in April! Believe it or not, but it's a noteworthy cost. Just about 349 500 calories, so it's like… over 1400 donuts or 1977 kg of tomatoes
#meet & #askMerix
Every Friday is equivalent to a new episode of a vlog or podcast; every Monday is an opportunity to meet another crew member. The #meetMerix and #askMerix series - we will say immodestly - gain fantastic reach in our social media. The chance to write each new post is always exciting and challenging for us <3
This month, as part of #meetMerix, we had the opportunity to present Jan and Mikołaj, and Julia and Marcin aka Maja answered questions in #askMerix:
