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.
Yes, it sounds good! Or it sounded very well for me at least! And I also got the information from one of my friends that 1x has a very friendly culture! So after being 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!
