It’s essential that employees work in a positive space. This boosts morale, improves teamwork, increases employee efficiency as well as productivity and reinforces retention of the workforce. Taking all these elements into consideration, the employees of NineStack, an app development company under Nordic Intent, located in Porvorim reveal the secret to how their work culture makes them a happier and productive team.
When one walks into the NineStack office, there’s a strong feeling of camaraderie in the air. With approximately 30 employees, it’s impossible for everyone to sit together but yet they manage to work hard and have fun doing it.
The team is made up of a mix of employees, some of whom have been around since the company began as well as a group of new joinees. That being said, this is definitely one of the most united teams that work together. They even make time to sit together at the same time for lunch no matter what their workload is. After hours are sometimes spent with the whole team heading out together for a meal or a movie and on days off, they even go on picnics together and celebrate each colleague’s birthday with flair.
Here are some nice things that a few of the employees had to say about working at NineStack.
I’ve been at NineStack for two years now and find that working here is fun. As a tester, I work with all developers in the organization and have experienced nothing but complete cooperation from all of my colleagues. The COO is supportive and always pushes us to do our best in our work when we participate in activities. Another very helpful colleague is our Project Manager who is always there whenever we need him.
I remember when I joined here 11 months back, the COO and the Delivery Manager came to me saying, “If you feel overloaded with work or are finding it difficult, please tell us, we will help you find a solution.” That gave me the confidence to ask for help whenever I needed it. The work here is very challenging, often taking us out of our comfort zone which is a good thing. Having great colleagues has definitely made my work life easier and lots of fun.

NineStack is pretty great. No one micromanages your work. The team is fun to work with and very united. It’s evident when you see us all sitting down to have lunch together which is then followed by a round or two of table-tennis. Bonus point: we also have team outings to look forward to after work.

I’ve worked at Ninestack for more than 2 years now and one of the things I personally like about it is that the team members are always there to help someone who requires assistance for a certain task. Not only that, the management go out of their way to guide and support the developers in their daily tasks. It’s pretty great that Ninestack has a healthy work-life balance where you work hard and also have fun.
