  • Behind the Kitchen Door: The Operations TeamDecember 16, 2013

    Do you remember "Behind the Kitchen Door"? In the past articles, we talked about our Design Team and the Web Team: they are the visual part of our site with the use and the graphical part of the website. Today, it's time to talk about our Operations Team. It is an important "piece of the chain" because they are in charge of having your order ready, and providing new products to the site. Kits, references, deal with suppliers, logistics... The most of the operations that surrounds the process of keeping your order with "the care of a mother", since you place it in our site.

    Daniel, as Purchasing Manager, is the person in charge of buying everything from our suppliers, from direct reselling products to the whole and hard task to deal prices and components with the PCB Manufacturer.

    Cristina is in charge of production tasks: Delivery notes, warehouse management, task board... Both have also the role of Quality Managers, so they do everything in their hands to implement the rules of the Quality Certifications in the company.

     
    Tarek and Nines are involved in the process of Order Processing and Logistics. Every day, they are fighting to ship all the orders, in order to be ready for picking up by the carrier. Kits, blundle products, pre-programmed Waspmotes and Meshliums... They are not only preparing orders as easy as "pick & place". They program Waspmote, Meshlium with custom specifications for the customers.

     
    Programming, Warehouse and Purchase management skills are three of the qualities that they have. But not the only ones...

  • Behind the Kitchen Door: The Web TeamOctober 28, 2013

    Do you remember "Behind the Kitchen Door"? In the first article, we talked about our Design Team: the visual part of our site. Today, it's time to talk about our Web Team. It is very closed to the Design Team and it is an important "piece of the chain" because they are in charge of what you are watching through your computer and the behaviour of the site. Tutorial templates, links, banner management, scripts to show the products... Every 0 and 1 of the code is important for us and our Web Team takes care of that.

    Carlos integrates the Web Team. Every day, he is fighting to improve our site, making it lighter, more user-friendly and compatible with most of browsers which are appearing.

    In conjuction with the Design Team, Carlos upload them in the exact position to show a clear page where the load speed is very important. Do you like our Tutorials? As you can see, our documentation is very large so it could be a nightmare to wait until the images are loaded. One of the improvements by the Web Team was to upload them while scrolling. It makes the page light for old browsers.

    Programming skills and Server management are two of the qualities that he has. But not the only ones...

  • Behind the Kitchen Door: The Design TeamAugust 22, 2013

    Hi everyone! Today, we are going to start a new section in our Blog. The idea is to introduce all our Team to the Community.

    Along these articles, you will be able to meet every person who makes it possible, from Design to Logistic Department.

    These articles will show the human face of the people involved in Cooking Hacks. We are not only the people who can meet you in the events or appear in the videos.

    Take a minute, relax and enter in Cooking Hacks world. Here begins:


    Behind the Kitchen Door!!!

    In this first article, we are going to talk about our Design Team: the visual part of our site. Every pixel, banner and video is the result of many hours spent by them.

    Oscar, EstefanĂ­a and Tamara are the three people who integrate the Design Team. With an open mind, they convert all the ideas from their minds into reality using their computers.


    Do you like our Tutorials and Videos? An important step in the process of launching our releases is the picture and video processing. Every photo and frame of the videos in the tutorials are processed by our Design Team. The result: a nice combination between technical information and the best shot of the products. There is a wide range of videos, from release of products (basic commands and use of the new product) or applications made with our last releases (like our Geolocation Tracker or the HVAC IR Remote Shield for Arduino/Raspberry Pi), to summaries of the last events where we have been, like the Mini Maker Faire Bilbao.

    Our logo, banners, the robots or leprechauns in our Hide&Seek Games... are designed by this team. Lot of imagination and skills with the software for designers are two of the qualities that they have. But not the only ones...
