Ever wondered what it’s like working at STYLIGHT?

Let us show you! We took some snapshots this morning at the office ūüôā¬†Unfortunately¬†instagram doesn’t offer an API to process images, so we just created an account. Follow us if you fancy that. Let’s start:

Our typical workplace has:


  • A Macbook with OSX or a workstation running either Linux or Windows
  • Two 24″ screens. We’re experimenting with going to three right now. One for the website, one for the editor and one for logs.
  • 12-16GB RAM, 256GB SSD
  • Developer VM. We run our code in VMs which get (nearly) the same config as our production machines using puppet
  • Headphones. Although our office is nice and quite, we all enjoy listening to music every once in a while. We even have our own remixes.



Sometimes we mix in some treats:

work2   work1

work4   work3

That’ a pretty huge coffee count, to be precise: 8525 coffees, and that’s counting since three months ago when we moved into our new office. Before Christmas we had been really busy releasing our latest product feature – the boards – so setting up the office lagged a little behind, but now we’re catching up fast.

Our latest installation

…are swings which are an awesome opportunity to take a 5 minutes break.

That’s because it’s located in an old printing factory. But it’s right in the city center, just¬†50 m from the subway station “Mailingerstrasse” (two stops off central station).

Lunch Time is the best time

If you zoom right in, you see we are¬†surrounded¬†by small food places and¬†eateries. We¬†usually¬†fan out to our¬†favorite¬†places (we like the¬†Leibspeis¬†a lot, but also the burgers at¬†Hans im Gl√ľck, the Vietnamese restaurant Pho¬†or the¬†little Italien place¬†Grasso, with its delicious Tris di Pasta) and then gather in the atrium to have lunch together:

Aren’t¬†those all great reasons to pay us a visit?

Just come by for a coffee or stay longer – we’re hiring! Also, our next company event is around the corner, follow us on twitter to get the exact location and date. Here is an impression of the last STYLIGHT party
