Shares' new Paris HQ

Shares’ new Paris HQ has arrived!

For Shareholders in Paris, the 31st March 2022 will always have a special place in their hearts. After new office openings in Kraków and London, the Paris team now has a shiny new home to call its own.

We celebrated in style for the opening party. Mexican food (with a live cooking demo), margaritas, a Mariachi band (kept a surprise until they arrived!) and an all-round great atmosphere.

The live Mariachi band in action!

Our new home in Paris

Spread over 300 square metres, Shares’ Paris HQ has a lofty, cosy and warm interior. There are lots of wooden elements, black metal frames and glass walls. It’s not as big as the company’s growth plans, but it’s perfect for the next few months as we centralise our energy, promote collaboration and bond the team in Paris.

The office has 56 well-equipped workstations, with individual lights and comfortable ergonomic chairs. Desktop screens provide automatic laptop charging, so there’s no need to lug a charger around. The big and spacious kitchen is a great area for team meetings, common meals, informal chats and productive breaks.

Working hard or hardly workin'?

If someone prefers to work in a more relaxed environment, comfy sofas and armchairs provide the perfect setting. In the ‘Oprah Winfrey’ chill-out room, there are two huge bean bags waiting for those who would like to feel more comfortable and lie down with a laptop.

The new office has plenty of meeting rooms and phone booths, so all catch-ups and calls can be held outside of the open space. The meeting rooms are equipped with Google Meet facilities so people can feel like they’re sitting in the same room with colleagues from other sites.

We mainly took this pic for the coat.

We’ve decided to name our meeting rooms after people who’ve changed the world: Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Nikola Tesla, Leonardo Da Vinci, Coco Chanel and many more. They serve as our inspiration to build a great product that will change the investment world.
