We asked our colleagues what they'd be missing from Xeropan if they didn't work together. This is what they said:

Bence Fagyal, Lead Content Development: "I'd be missing the people, the team. I'd be missing the fact that I have a say in what we do and how it operates and the fact that I can manage my own office hours."

Tamás Jurcsák, Creative marketing "The youthful lads in the team. Flexibility. The daily that go with exciting and versatile work. The constant development and improvement I experience. The burger place just around the corner from the office :)"
