Pragmateam’s culture is alive and healthy. Experimentation, learning and improving are at the core of everything we do. We live and breath our OKRs.
We are passionate about giving back to the community, either through public speaking, attending meetups and conferences as well as active contribution to open source projects.
Last week we experimented with the offsite format, hosting a mini conference. Each Pragmatist invited a PragmaFriend, whether it be someone they are working with at a client or someone they felt close aligned to our values and passions.
Starting with a great lunch and very energetic icebreaker, we ran a series of lightning talks throughout the afternoon. There was no specific theme to the talks, other than no boundaries, feel free to share something you are passionate about, whether it be work related or not.

This week we held our bi-montly offsite, providing a great opportunity for us to regroup, reflect, reward and focus. The format for our offsite varies, such as hackdays, reflecting and planning, refresh OKRs and guest speakers.
