How the life goes at Ponávka
Our Brno team moved to the new Ponávka Business Centre in December. So how is it going there?
Lundegaard opened the Brno development centre in May 2016. JAVA Portal & The Integration Delivery Centre focuses on the Liferay platform and the development of large web portals. During its short existence, the team has also been able to prepare a complex portal monitoring application called Lifetrace.
The team has been growing rapidly and the original spaces in the Impact Hub soon ceased to suffice, hence the new space choice was Ponávka.
Already during the move and furnishing everyone lent their hands. Now we are feeling lucky Lundegaard has a good Brno base, which means we can work better (also remotely), and use comfortable meeting rooms and technology. What is more, everyone can enjoy quality coffee from an office quality coffee maker and views of beautiful sunsets above the AZ Tower.
The office atmosphere feels more friendly thanks to the random kitchen bar bump-ins over good food. And, fruit supplies take care of the need for vitamins – some may prefer " eating them up " in one piece, others may make smoothies. However, we also go out for a pint every now and then, so that all the hanging out doesn’t happen in the office only.
Further interior modifications are in progress– meeting room themes are being created, new furniture is being added in the common areas, along with interesting interior tweaks; and, the lobby area is being modified following Lundegaard’s design. At the same time, people are coming up with more and more ideas for out-of-work activities.
"We are building not only a quality work team, but also a team of friends who are not afraid to take part in a badminton tournament, or surprise the others with a culinary creation at a barbecue. The works on the interior will still take a bit, but we are already enjoying a relaxed working atmosphere in a very nice environment. At the same time, we keep looking for new colleagues who would join us in the great atmosphere at Ponávka. We are looking especially for skilled Java developers. Join us!" Says Lukáš Matějka, Head of the Brno Development Centre.
