First-ever Fintech Private Social Network

The WONDR team plan on sharing our knowledge and expertise with the design community in Spain, especially insights on how we collaborated with 11Onze to create ‘First-ever Fintech Private Social Network‘ in Barcelona.

A lot can happen in seven years. Although we might count time in minutes, days and years, we measure their value in moments. Here are some of our favourites:

Christmas time at the office with the Wicklow Street view, all the decorations. It’s such a great vibe. Christmas songs, cozy ambience and Pete making hot whiskey for everyone. Great craic!

Diego

Summer on Grafton.

Pete

My first day. A colourful office, a desk with a view, chilled background music, a very warm welcome from the team. I knew there were good times ahead

Mary

Drinking and playing ping-pong with the team in Dublin!

Clément

Dermot with the giant shamrock glasses continuing to write emails!

Sinead

My favourite moment - the day we were putting up the WONDR wall. It felt very collaborative and it was a fun day at the practice.

Kristiana

Virtual Halloween 2020 - we had a virtual party after a long time that day. I had my introduction presentation, we had burgers delivered and everyone had scary hats + face paint!

Suganthini

The many pints + chats at Mary's.

Mariana

Whenever we are around the table in our boardroom Borges, or on a call in the new world, discussing a project. Every person is listened to, and every idea is thrashed out. Everyone is so accountable and passionate about how their individual roles come together to form the bigger picture, and I always leave those meetings feeling inspired by my teammates.”
