WooTrip 2014 Roundup

November 21, 2014 in Blog. 2 Comments

Remember, remember the month of November 2014? We sure will! It’ll be known for all time as when we hosted our first conference and gathered as a team to hang out and explore San Francisco. A couple of us called it San Fran, but SF forgave us and put flowers in our hair.

Hello, SF

The Woo team arrived in SF from various corners of the world on 1 November for the 5th annual WooTrip and gathered in the lobby of the Holiday Inn for hello’s, high fives and for many of us to meet for the very first time. Working remotely has many benefits, but meeting colleagues face to face sure is unbeatable. WooTrip is the highlight of our calendar year and a time for us to make memories, take pictures (see the feed) and have fun together.

WooTrip North America

May 28, 2014 in Team news. 8 Comments

Our distributed North American team recently descended upon Chicago for a rare in-person meet-up. Not only were we able to take in the sites, culture, and all the wonderful food that Chicago has to offer, but we also had the pleasure of attending UserConf, a 1-day customer service conference about keeping your customers happy.

WooTrips have become part of our work hard/play harder formula. The recipe isn’t an exact science, but we know these in person meet-ups help fuel the magic that is our culture.

Early this October, the entire WooTeam arrived in Leiden for WooTrip 2013. For those unfamiliar with WooTrip, this event is the annual opportunity for our entire team to converge on a single location for a week of team building, bonding and a chance to work side by side with team members who all usually work from remote locations across the globe. This year, we all also attended WordCamp Europe, as a part of our WooTrip.

It’s been a little over a month since the team returned from Cape Town for WooTrip 2012. Whilst it was well documented on Instagram we wanted to give you a little more insight into the behind the scenes of the WooThemes machine.

To help humanize the business we entrusted Mr Andy Schar to follow us around and capture the team get together. We are super excited with the short film that Andy masterfully created as a result of it, capturing all the highlights of a very special time of year for all of us at WooThemes.

The WooTrip recap

November 3, 2012 in Blog, Team news. 14 Comments

I’m a very proud co-founder today, as I’m sure Magnus and Adii will both agree. The WooTrip has now come and gone and our distributed team of 25, dotted across 7 countries, are making their long way back home from the tip of Africa.

We had a very simple goal of this one week trip and that was to build a stronger, more connected team. I think it’s safe to say we’ve achieved that goal, and taken it one step further and all made a bunch of special, new friends. What is evident of this week is that our team is made up of some brilliant personalities of very diverse backgrounds.
