I spent the last three days in Frankfurt at 1xINTERNET, the company I’ve just started to work for. Now I’m on my way to get home. And I feel it’s time to make a log about what happened recently and what are my expectations.
Just some facts
If you know “Drupal’s world” just a little bit I bet you’ve heard about 1xINTERNET already!
If not then here are some basic information: both the company and its people are well known by the Drupal community. Eg. 1xINTERNET won two Splash Awards last year with sites which combine Drupal 8 and React elegantly and efficiently. The CEO, Baddysonja was (one of) the lead organizer(s) of Drupal Europe, an event which served as “the prototype” of a more sustainable Drupal conference in Europe.
There are members of the 1x team who are active Drupal community people and we met/had a friendship already. And 1x has an international team including Hungarians (like me) too.
Sounds good! Isn’t it?
Yes, it sounds good! Or it sounded very well at least for me! And I also got the information from one of my friends that 1x has a very friendly culture! So after beeing a Mirum Budapest team member for two years, I took the opportunity to get hired by 1xINTERNET!
And what happened so far? Not too much. Or a lot! I got my equipment and got a little bit familiar with a project I’ll work on. But I learned some new things too already. And I met those 1x-ers who work in the Frankfurt office (1x has more offices and remote workers as well).
And most importantly the news about the friendliness was totally right! I felt from the first moment I got to the office that I arrived at a very humane company! And this impression just became stronger over time! I do not know how to explain it as I do not want to be very generic or platitudinous but I don’t want to share personal details either. I hope my sentences above can convey my experience.
What could be my expectations hereupon? I hope that this kind of atmosphere won’t change! And what I learned about the leaders of 1x in this short period that makes it stronger than just a hope!
I hope I’ll learn a lot. I hope I’ll be able to help others and I hope I’ll be part of great projects! I’m waiting to meet all the 1x people and attend Drupal events. (We plan our company gathering already what – surprise! 😉 – will be held related to a Drupal community event.) And I’m waiting to share more 1x experience with you!
