TripAdvisor, the company behind the world’s largest travel site, has combined its three key Australian subsidiaries into one office space for the first time. With its TripAdvisor, Viator and Dimmi teams coming together for the first time, the office fitout and design was focused on optimising the workplace experience for its 200 staff.
“Our new office space design was not about impressing clients, it’s all about attracting and retaining staff,” said Jeff Lewis, VP of Engineering, Attractions at TripAdvisor.
TripAdvisor’s new Australian headquarters are a showcase on how to create the ideal agile development environment. The company’s Australian development teams work closely with their colleagues from around the world, particularly in the US, making international collaboration a key requirement of the technology design and build.
“With the new office build, we were trying to enable our staff to collaborate across offices and collaborate together in real time and take advantage of our time zone so that we were able to work during our day which is the end of the US day, and in effect extend the working hours,” said Duncan Hall, IT
POMT has provided the technologies and solutions to contribute towards a positive, productive and flexible workspace that fosters a team-based culture.
