Our Year

Yearly kickoff

Each year has its own story. Our yearly kickoff is an all-hands meeting to tell the team what challenges to solve.

Assembly

Our all-hands monthly meeting. See details on the next slide.

The Assembly takes place once a month, usually on the first Thursday at 14:00. The Google Meet link is attached to the event. The meeting is recorded and shared for everybody who’s missing out. The Assembly and the information shared in the meeting are obligatory for every team member. The recordings and slides can be found in the corresponding shared drive folders. They are also pinned in our #announcements Slack channel.

Changes in date and time will be announced early on. The assembly follows this agenda:

Company Update

What's the current situation? How are numbers looking? Anything special going on in the Thomann universe? Here's the section for answers.

Product & Company Backlog

An overview of our product success (and failures) will be given in this part. In addition, there will be an update on the most important strategic Thomann projects from our company backlog.

thomann.io

Is there a team event upcoming? Will there be a workshop? Did a team member achieve something special? All news regarding thomann.io are shared in this section of the meeting.

Feedback

After each Assembly the team is provided a feedback form. It asks how happy you were in the last month. You can also provide personal feedback. The team averages are shown in the beginning of the next Assembly.

Questions

Is there anything that still needs clarification? That’s where you can ask. Don’t be shy, don’t hesitate to ask anything you’d like to know. If there is an answer to your question, you’ll get it here.

Open Space

A day for team-wide knowledge sharing. Bring in your own ideas and topics. The usual tracks are tech, product, meta, music. There'll also be workshops, hackathons, and team building. It's usually an event spanning 3-5 days, somewhere together, in person.

Christmas Business

October 15 marks the traditional start of Christmas business in e-commerce. This is when we enter the phase of showing our prettiest faces and a polished user experience.

Team/Unit Events

Get to meet your peers, your team members, your unit members. Check with your lead or your team on how and when to organize events. Feel free to rent a boat on Spree river, visit a drip stone cave, or go for Mario Kart like go-kart. Check the guideslines section for more information.
