Onboarding

Office Tour and Welcome

A first look around the new work space to get to know some of your new colleagues. Get to know the local places you are most likely to need to go in your first weeks.

Email

We utilize Office365 for email and calendar. We will get you set up with an account to use for work related things. For Windows you may use Outlook, for macOS Outlook or Mail (both work fine with Office365). For Linux our recommendation for emails and calendar is Evolution as clients like Thunderbird lack native support for Office365. Please see this guide for more info on how to set up Evolution with Office365.

Slack

We utilize Slack for all inter-office communication within technology teams as well as with other teams. It also serves as a way to monitor bugs (Sentry integration), CI (GitLab integration) and deployments.

WhatsApp (optional)

For all who use WhatsApp, we also have an internal WhatsApp group, which is mainly used for social interaction, as well as planning and coordination of some company events. While optional (as important announcements are made via email or Slack), it is a fun social channel to use.

GitLab

The central point for all development is GitLab. We have enterprise accounts for all team members and utilize a lot of the included functionality.

Sentry

For error tracking we use Sentry. All bugs are every employee's responsibility if they happen on one of their projects. All members should get acquainted with how Sentry works, how to create an issue from a bug occurrence and how to schedule it for a fix.

Browserstack (if needed for work)

All people who are required to write CSS/HTML that is delivered to customers must have access to Browserstack in order to check out cross-browser compatibility.

Server Access (if needed for work)

We believe in shared deployment responsibility. Everybody who does full time work on a team should learn how to deploy code eventually.
