Arkabot Insider - Updates from Arkatechture
by Devin Cook, on April 14, 2020
Here are some highlights from early 2020 as Arkatechture adapts to a world where offices are shut down and businesses seek to reduce their risk.
We're celebrating LOTS of anniversaries as well as a new hire and promotion for one of our fellow Arkabots as well.
Read on to see how we're still thriving in 2020!
Arkatechture goes remote
In the pre COVID-19 world, Arkatechture prepared for a potential disaster with our business continuity and contingency plan. Although we pride ourselves on having a vibrant in-person company culture, we put the plan into action and went fully remote.
Our development processes almost always leverage cloud technologies accessed through the Internet, so the transition felt natural even though we miss working together and collaborating face-to-face. Now, we hop on a large group call for Monday morning coffee, Wednesday show-and-tell, as well as a Friday After-Hours Happy Hour to wind down.
It's always been a work hard, play hard environment - and we're keeping that going even though we don't get to see these smiling faces in person every day!
