It’s the People that Make the Company
For Robert, it really is the employees that make Zendesk what it is. “It might sound cheesy but it’s true!” he says. “We have over 25 nationalities in the Dublin office and it’s a highly collaborative, fun and flexible environment.” To make that environment even more attractive, Zendesk organise a range of different events and knowledge-sharing sessions for their employees. Robert explains: “We have brown bag sessions where we’ll get guest speakers to come in and do talks on their area of expertise. People find them really inspiring.” On the lighter side, the company also holds social events like Cocktail Hour on Fridays and regular Lego Nights. Yes, Lego. Can it get any better?
No Sign of Stopping
The rapid growth in the industry has proved incredibly compelling for the people involved in recent years. Robert explains: “The Irish tech scene is booming, and it’s been completely embraced by the community. It’s very exciting to be a part of it.”
