How will i spend the summer

    A post on how to get a job as an ABBYY programmer gathered a lot of comments. Perhaps the time has come for a series of stories about what awaits a person who has fallen into the ranks of our employees.

    One of the most striking projects that are being made for employees is Summer with ABBYY. This is a series of small events held in the company for the third year and has already become a real corporate tradition.

    As a rule, our “Summer” begins in May and ends already in September. On one of the spring days, everyone finds on their desk a calendar of a project ( like this ) that suggests spending the summer so that in the fall you don’t regret that you didn’t have time.


    Despite the fact that in the summer each of us has a lot of plans, trips and entertainments, more than half of the employees of the Moscow office of the company usually join corporate trips. Almost everyone can find an event for themselves in the program, because we have a lot of offers: from excursions (in Moscow at night or to Soyuzmultfilm studio), to a cowboy trip, from a badminton master class with a professional trainer to a kayak trip. Moreover, you can participate in all events, you can - in several, but you can not participate at all. Well, if you sign up for some, then the probability of getting into the company of people who are not familiar with each other, people from different projects and departments. It’s clear that if you later have to communicate at work, for example, with your kayak neighbor,

    Top managers of the company also take part in the project. For example, the chief of the Lingvo team Alexander Rylov led the first kayaking trip, which, by the way, became the first kayaking trip in our life for our CEO, Sergey Andreev.


    At the end of May, another Summer started. This year it will be more athletic: we are waiting for a windsurfing master class, a large kite festival, orienteering, and traditional kayaking trips. In addition, paleontological excavations, a quest in Moscow, a theater picnic and a traditional family trip to the forest on Neptune Day are planned. And some of the events - the ABBYY Road rally and bike night - have already brought a lot of positive emotions to the participants.

    In general, come to us to work. It will not be boring!
