After our first year of operations in the Philippines, we are now ready for growth again.
After getting comfortable in our new office, we added a new department along with a new project.
Walah! The developers team was born!
Initially composed of Goks, Punx and Umar, we started the development of whitebelt.co
But then Goks and Punx left, and we are left with Umar. And so we got Olem and JK.
We also have a permanent cook now, Ate Yang2.
We also had to expand to a bigger office and we got the adjacent room next door. (Door R).
At December 2016, Gram visited for the 2nd time and we played beer pong with the team.
Even though Angelo was working with us full time since the beginning, he did his CIT internship with us on 2016. Technically he is the first intern we had, and got absorbed. Now he is our mobile developer.
At the start of our 2017, we started accepting interns from other schools. First interns we got are from University of San Jose Recolletos, my Alma matter.
We got Bryan, a few days later, Barbs and Angelo(another Angelo) started their internship with us also.
All 3 worked as designer interns, processing videos using adobe after effects.
We also hired our first internal QA Michelle by the month of February.
In April, Barbs, Angelo and Bryan are finishing their internship hours with us. We added 2 new interns, this time for the web development QAs.
New interns were Trina and Christine. And for the summer time intern, we have Amiel, who work as the new designer intern.
Late in April, we had our 2nd major team building activity at Villa Mara, Minglanilla Cebu.
This concludes our 2 years of operation. Part 3 will be posted soon with updates starting from May 2017 up until recent day of 2018.
