What makes a great office? Friendly colleagues and inspiring work, of course. But at Trustly, we believe having a nice space to come to work every day doesn’t hurt either.
In 2015, Trustly welcomed many new employees and soon our humble space at Fridhemsplan couldn’t contain our creativity. We found a new home on the seventh and eighth floors of Norrtullsgatan 6 at Odenplan and customized it to our heart’s desire. The sober interior, designed by pS Arkitektur, has playful touches meant to stimulate innovation and encourage collaboration. And with the company expected to grow to 260 people in the next two years, we hope the new space will breed success.
Fancy a tour? Come on in, we’ll show you around. If you think our office is as cool as we do, please vote for us in Sweden’s Coolest Office competition!
Visitors to Trustly are welcomed to the seventh floor by an industrial reception and a smiling face behind the desk. If you have to wait a moment for your meeting, grab a seat on the swing!
Trustly’s bright conference rooms are named after European cities: Stockholm, Barcelona, Cologne, London, Sliema and Warsaw. The glass walls inspire transparency, but light curtains can be drawn to limit distractions.
Designed with many dynamic workspaces, our office has an open floor plan equipped with standing desks. (Don’t worry, you can easily lower them if your feet get tired!)
Walk upstairs to the eighth and top floor of the building and you’ll come to our kitchen, which is the hub of all happenings at Trustly. Here at 8:30 every morning, we eat breakfast together and in the afternoon, you’ll find people gathered for fika. At 5:30 on Fridays we share a beer and cheers to a successful week. The kitchen also doubles as a work space where people have casual meetings.
Behind the kitchen sits our growing tech team. There are also several breakout rooms where people can take phone calls in private or sketch out ideas on the chalkboard walls.
In the words of Albert Einstein, “creativity is intelligence having fun,” so when we need some inspiration, our brilliant minds retreat to the sunroom equipped with a state-of-the-art VR system, nerf guns, video games, foosball, bean bags, hammocks and more!
Perhaps our employees’ favorite feature of the office is our terrace—rather, terraces! The larger terrace sits off of our seventh floor reception and in the summer you can find people grilling at lunch or soaking up the afternoon sun. On the eighth floor, the terrace wraps around the whole building, perfect for walking meetings and breakfasts on sunny mornings.
