Meet Gonca! We like her, so will you!

Welcoming one of our newest employees: Gonca McGuffin

Hey,

My name is Gonca McGuffin! I was born and raised in Hanover/Germany and have a Turkish ancestry.

It has been almost two years now since I moved to the US, and I have really fell in love with Oregon! The first time I came over to here, was in 2011 as an Au-pair and this is basically how I got stuck over here ;) During my time as an Au-pair I met my now husband. Back than I needed to go back to Germany to study and we started a long-distance relationship. Once back for good, I was looking for German based companies. After my first US job, in Vancouver, WA, which was a hell of a commute, I found satis&fy. I really apricate working with Venne (the COO) and seeing all the projects come to life! 

 

Where are you from?

Over the hills and far away

 

What is your special talent?

To keep things organized as the Executive Assistant to the COO.

 

What is one word that you would use to describe your team?

Energetic

 

What do you do with your free-time?

Camping, reading books, quads, cooking, going on long walks, watching fixer upper, and the list goes on...

 

Do you have any strange phobias?

After watching a scary movie and going to bed, I don’t like to have my feet outside the blanket, even on a hot day! (Yes, my blanket turns into a safety blanket.)

 

#2 pencil or ball point pen?

I like the BIC round stic which is 74% recycled! I feel like it makes me write cleaner.

Wake Up! Hillsboro @satis&fy

We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout to last week's "Wake Up! Hillsboro" event. From networking to the showcasing of fantastic Hillsboro-based businesses, we’re proud to be a part of the thriving, local community.

Special thanks to the Hillsboro Chamber, everyone who took the time to drop by, our satis&fy team, and—of course—our summer interns for making the event happen!

We’ll see you next year, Hillsboro.

Celebrating... the Rose Bean Way!

Celebrating... the Rose Bean Way!

A big achievement calls for big celebration—and we were honored to have been invited by our friends at Rose Bean Events to their #RBPOPUP shop on NW Glisan last Thursday to celebrate our president Maika’s Portland Business Journal ‘Forty Under 40’ award with some food, friends, and great drinks.

As you can see from the following photos, Rose Bean didn’t mess around, as we were lucky enough to enjoy some of the very best food and drink Portland has to offer—courtesy of Foster’s Craft Cooking and Merit Badge Co.

Thank you for an amazing night!

#SatisCelebrates2015: Holidays Around the World

We’re firm believers that there's no wrong way to celebrate as long as you’re having fun.

This year we’re reaching out to our friends and family around the world and asking them to share with us the traditions, people, places, and activities that make their holidays special. Whether you’re perusing the Christmas Markets in Germany, baking gingerbread with Grandma, ice-skating in Rockefeller Center, or spending New Year’s Eve in the Netherlands—we’d love to see the way you celebrate the holidays.

Here’s how to participate:

  • Snap a photo of your favorite holiday activity, place, or tradition.
  • Upload the photo to Facebook or Instagram by January 1st, and be sure to include the #SatisCelebrates2015 hashtag.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for a blog post featuring the holiday photos from around the world shortly after the New Year.
