To find a new office that fit our needs, we had to take inventory of our team and our process. We needed to build a space that would allow our team to spread out and grow. I joined the group in March of 2016, with just enough time to get to know everyone before diving head first into a full office move.
Over the course of seven months, from the initial buildout to the move, we put our skills to work: James designed the architecture and layout of the new space. I became an interior designer and spreadsheet extraordinaire. Dylan took over as impromptu moving day coordinator, and everyone became experts at building Ikea furniture. Mark even fessed up to having spent a few years working as a moving coordinator for corporate offices.
We’re excited to see what unfolds in the new space as we continue to explore our projects and curiosities, and expand our team in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill neighborhood. Stay tuned for new visitors, talks, classes, workshops, and an amazing data-driven mural by our resident doodler, Rachel.
I’m especially grateful to work with such a talented and dynamic team and can’t wait to see what’s next for Fathom.
