At Sencha, our mission is to create the frameworks and tools that empower developers to create amazing cross-browser app experiences that execute with precision and performance. We have worked hard to assemble a team of brilliant people from around the world, and we periodically bring everyone together for company events.
I recently celebrated my fourth anniversary as a Sencha employee, and I am amazed at how much Sencha has grown during that time. As a remote employee, I don’t often have the opportunity to socialize in person with my friends and colleagues. Although I travel to Sencha HQ (Redwood City, CA) a few times a year for meetings, our company outings have a huge impact on our culture and remind me why I love working here!
In January, Sencha held its annual Worldwide Sales kickoff meeting in the San Francisco Bay Area. The event brought together our Sales, Marketing, Training and Professional Services teams to discuss various corporate and product updates — and although we spent a week in meetings and strategy sessions, we also arranged for a lot of downtime and fun activities.
Sencha Takes Over San Francisco
One of the days we were in town, we stopped our meetings at noon and boarded trolleys for a sightseeing tour of San Francisco. For those of us who work remotely, the trip was our first opportunity to see many parts of the city.
We toured various parts of San Francisco: AT&T Park, Fort Baker and North Beach. We also drove through Chinatown and Pier 39 — and of course, we stopped for some photo ops by the Golden Gate Bridge. Our tour guide was both informative and hilarious as he kept shouting out “points of interest” like the house where Robin Williams filmed the movie Mrs. Doubtfire. We ended up at the North Beach Restaurant for an incredible Italian dinner.
Next Up: SenchaCon 2015
The next major company event for us will be SenchaCon 2015, our annual developer conference hosted in the heart of Silicon Valley. Most of the Sencha team will be in town, and we are really looking forward to socializing with our community and sharing our technical knowledge.
