This past week, I’ve been drinking espresso shots, eating fresh pastries and hustling from the Paris HQ! Myself and the rest of the Mailjet NY team visited HQ for some training and team building, which proved to be extremely valuable as we prepare for TechCrunch Disrupt.
Our HQ offices are located in Sentier, a quaint neighborhood in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris. Historically known as the Garment District, Sentier has become home to the emerging French startup scene in recent years, now taking on the nickname …Silicon Sentier“.
It’s amazing to be part of a bilingual company where French and English is used interchangeably. Our global growth becomes very evident when the Mailjet team comes together to meet. Over the course of the past year, we’ve grown into a larger office (pictured here) and we’re in a much stronger position to serve our clients with dedicated staff to tailor services for each major market.
Aside from HQ, we have offices in 5 other countries, so we typically do a lot of our meetings through Skype. It was a great treat to meet in person with a whiteboard to brainstorm and discuss. There was some very productive discussion, we have a lot of cool things planned for you guys at TechCrunch Disrupt and in the coming weeks — so stay tuned!
Work hard, play hard. At the very back corner of the office, you’ll find a small Nerf gun armory tucked away in the corner. Perfect for a mid-day ambush! Always be on alert at HQ, because not only are Mailjet crewmembers skilled at email, they have pretty decent aim too.
