How does your team stay connected when working remotely?
It can be challenging to keep track of how everyone's doing or what projects they're working on while working remotely and in different squads. We strive to maintain unity as a team and strengthen our bonds through a few rituals:
Design Weekly: discussing our processes, sharing team updates, tracking OKRs
Design Jam: design critiques, workshops, ideation sessions
Working sessions: spontaneous or recurrent 1:1s to share projects, ask for feedback, work together
What does your workplace look like?
We have offices in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia. Here's our team having some fun in Paris ✨
How does your team work with product and engineering?
We work in squads alongside a product manager, engineering manager and engineers.
Our process is highly collaborative – we partner with PMs to conduct discovery, define problem spaces and solutions. Engineering is involved in the concept creation phase and lead the implementation of the project.
How does your team contribute to the design community?
Our head of design, Kat runs the IxDA Berlin community with a local design community which has over 3000 members. Each month, the local Berlin design community; from novices to experts, are invited to participate in talks, workshops, and networking events to expand their knowledge and contribute to the community.
Educational events span from anything from ethics to diversity and inclusion, and sustainability, and designers are given tools to integrate these into their work life. Each year, the community comes together and the annual IxDA conference to share ideas, network and learn about the latest design trends.
