Our new HQ
December 6th, 2018
One of the quotes brought to the table while we were planning our brand-new headquarters was “Saying that we are Beyond Sports and therefore assuming that we eat, sleep and breath sports is NOT enough”. The rapid growth of Beyond Sports forced us to leave the small and cozy office in the city center and move on to one which could accommodate all of us and our ambitions.
“If you're going to talk the talk, you have to walk the walk”. It repeatedly resonated in my head while looking at the blank floorplan. I picked up a pencil and started to draw a basketball court. Right there, in the center of the new office. Which is exactly where we position ourselves as a company: at the center of data, sports, and performance.
Looking back, I believe that it was the right call to make, the (basketball) court is amazing. It is so much fun to take jump shots with a colleague during the Friday afternoon drinks. It helps to open our minds while thinking about a though to tackle coding issue.
But foremost it truly is who we are as a company. A play yard full of groundbreaking challenges to be solved by the smartest and most dedicated people out there.
Offices are no longer just an intermediate place between breakfast and dinner. It is a place to be inspired, make friends, gain knowledge, and be motivated to do the unknown of tomorrow today. When you step into our office, the hair on the back of your neck should rise as the adrenaline rushes through your veins, otherwise the drinks from our cocktail bar will!
Oh, and did I mention that we have a beach right in front of our office? Well there is… kind of. We also offer a private stand up paddle tour through the canals of the city center for new hires.
On a serious note, the new office offers us the possibility to show our innovative products and their possibilities the best way possible. Our demo set up has brought a mixture of emotions to our visitors already. While most leave the place smiling like they were part of the next Colgate commercial, some experience a bit of fear from being at a dizzying (virtual) height of aprox. 80m of one of our tactical cameras.
If it all sounds cool to you, we would like to invite you to our office and experience it yourself.
Apply to one of the job openings by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org, request a demo via email@example.com or just step by for a coffee made by one of the 22 local baristas.
Whatever it is that moves you… We hope to see you soon at our new HQ!
