popular sites in Greece with over 1.5M unique visitors and 45M pageviews per month.
Skroutzs' portofolio includes two more products: Skroutzstore.gr
which is a successfull hosted commerce platform with over 160 clients and
Soby.gr which is the first and biggest deal aggregator in Greece.
Life at Skroutz
We hit the office from 9.00 to 10.00 just in time for our "Daily Standup" meeting,
outside, under the tree. On Mondays, we review previous week accomplishments and pat ourselves in the back.
Teams present their deliverables and everyone gets to speak about things that are worth sharing.
Fridays are very important because after lunch (12:00 - 13:00) everyone
is allowed to work on everything they want provided they'll present their findings.
Some are building a D&D game, others are playing with Erlang, whatever makes them happy. Every
Friday we have a short presentation on various topics and if it happens to
be the first Friday of the month we get to talk about it over beers at the
Skroutz Monthly Night Out.
