We’re getting a Brussels office!
Weichie finally moved to a shared office space in Brussels! Nothing too crazy, but who knows what the future will bring. In the website industry, we’re already used to remote-working as we have clients both in Belgium and New York. But whether you’re working remotely or not… for me personally it’s always nicer to have a physical location as well. Even if it’s just for the sake of separating work and private. Working from home sounds fun, but trust me… it gets boring after 3+ years.
After two years in New York, I really dig the big city life. But there are many reasons why I’m choosing Brussels. The main reason is the office space. We’re going for a WeWork office and currently, WeWork only has locations in Brussels. Antwerp also has some great co-working spaces, but is harder to reach on a daily basis than Brussels. Besides that, Brussels is a really beautiful city and I love the diversity of everything.
As mentioned before we also work for companies outside Belgium and even outside the EU. Like Adaptive Green or Nicole Lapin. Brussels is a city that everyone knows, which makes it easier to explain to clients where we’re operating from.
The beers! No, just kidding but it is a nice extra for when you have clients or visitors over, or when it will become a late night. WeWork is a coworking space that has everything in-house. Coffee, Tea, (fruit) water, printing services, post-service, delivery service, … You get 24/7 access to the office with a key-card so you can hop by any time. The contract goes month-to-month and you can easily swap between WeWork locations.
We don’t know what will be next yet. We’re a passionate team that will always take a challenge. I really like our space in Brussels, but for the moment it’s not a permanent location yet.
