Moving Into Our New Office

After many months of planning and preparation (and a few long days of heavy lifting), we've now moved into our new offices in the Gasworks precinct in Launceston.

For the next few years, Bitlink and Definium will be working from shared office space on the first floor of the Gasworks, above the Hog's Breath Cafe. Even though we've only been in the office for a short time, we're already finding that moving from being distributed across multiple home office spaces to having a single shared base of operations has been immensely valuable.

The last few weeks have been a busy time for us and having a great new office space to work from has made it a lot easier for us to collaborate effectively and deliver on some tight deadlines.

We're hoping to do a bit of a tour of the new office space on the blog sometime soon, but in the meantime, here's a picture of Meg, the official Bitlink dog in her natural habitat.

If you'd like to come visit Meg and the rest of the team sometime, just get in touch with us via our contact page.
