historia
Nuestra motivación para la creación de Pipeline nació de nuestras propias frustraciones al tratar de encontrar un lugar decente para trabajar. Después de trabajar desde casa, cafés, oficinas corporativas aburridos, e incluso suites ejecutivas tradicionales, nos convertimos consumidos con la idea de crear la experiencia óptima de trabajo. Un lugar que nos gustaría trabajar nosotros mismos. Desde el inicio de esa idea, es justo decir que nos hemos vuelto un poco obsesionados con la creación de una comunidad de trabajo inspirada en Pipeline.
“The beginning is the most important part of the work. ”
