fellow of Bridge Budapest, LogMeIn, Boston, 2013

First week in Boston

On my first day we made a list with Brian based from the available projects I can join during the program based on my interests. Following the first few dense days I managed to pick up the rhythm of the LogMeIn office: I more or less knew who is who, what will be my tasks, how can I reserve a conference room or ask for tech support, where can I go for lunch and for how long can I stay in the office and work (I hope I don’t surprise anyone that the answer is forever), etc…

I spent the rest of my week designing new iterations for the project I started back in the Budapest office. In the mean time I was talking with as many people I could to learn as much as possible from the company and I’ve attended presentations held by product owners for new hires.

I loved that the mood in the office was light and easy, no sign of any authority just occasional toy gun fights and weekly meetups with free beers, seriously.

Slowly and gradually my days began to follow a pattern: workout, work, lunch, work and more work. At the end of the day I was dead exhausted and one moment after I closed my eyes it was morning again, but this didn’t bother me at all, I loved the tasks and the environment.
