Christmas-gift-guide-for-guys

With Christmas getting near, it’s time to cross some names off that shopping list! To make gift-giving a little easier, we’ve asked the guys of Blinds.com what they’ve got on their holiday wish list! Here’s What They Told Us: John said:  The XBOX One / PS4 “Cause it’s epic. Newest game systems that every dude should want. Pushing some of the best high end graphics that will make your eye balls bleed pixels.” Arduino Starter Kit  “Every geek has been wanting to get into an Arduino project. You can create just about anything with an Arduino kit and some patience. I’ve always wanted to create an wifi controlled garage door opener. That way I can close the garage if I…

Enjoying The Ride – My First Week at Blinds.com

r August 15, 2013 | B Blinds.com Culture

Meet Ruaa, our new HR Assistant and the latest member of our Blinds.com Team. She shares her thoughts after her first week in the Blinds.complex. My first week at GCC was truly unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I was a bit nervous to start, a good nervous like the first day of school. School is to children, as work is to adults, no one really wants to go and that first day is always the best. After only being here a week, I have already begun to develop a whole new perspective in my experience of work. Meaning yes, my previous analogy still applies. Let me explain. You go to school in order to continuously improve your knowledge and education,…

Enjoy the Ride: Blinds.com Rube Goldberg Machine Project

r July 24, 2013 | B Blinds.com Culture

 This post comes via our Autobahn Product Manager Wade – master of all things tech and board gamer extraordinaire.  The Ride Begins One of the reasons I love working at Blinds.com is that you never know what type of “extracurricular” project you may have a chance to work on.  In my short ten months with the company I’ve helped build a giant Angry Bird out of canned food to benefit Houston Canstruction, participated in a lip dub video, and was recently part of a team tasked with building a Rube Goldberg machine to decorate a conference room at our new office. [A Rube Goldberg machine is an overly complex machine designed to perform a simple task] My co-workers, Hung Cao and…

Jumping into Blinds.com

Want to get an inside look into what things are really like in the Blinds.complex? Read on to hear what our newest UX designer, David Wen has to say after joining the Blinds.com Family. Peering over the edge I have been working for around six years now and I have yet to experience a culture as unique as Blinds.com.  After all, they were voted Best Place to Work in Houston. The Jump Starting at a new company is always nerve-wracking.  Learning about the development environment, the code base, the work flow and your teammate’s personalities and skill sets, especially at Munchkin and D&D over lunch, can make anybody’s head spin. Blinds.com handles things differently. My first week was filled with fifteen…

Introducing our Summer Intern Rachel: Her Thoughts on Blinds.com

r July 2, 2013 | B Blinds.com Culture

Maybe you’ve already read some of my posts or maybe you’re meeting me for the first time! Either way, I wanted to talk about my experience thus far at Blinds.com and share a little about myself: Now that I’ve interned with Blinds.com for about a month, I’ve gained a lot of insight to how the company runs. Before I was offered the job, I had done a little research – I knew that Blinds.com had won ‘Marketer of the Year’ and ‘Best Place to Work in Houston’. I knew that it was a successful company and was supposed to be a fun place to work – but I had no idea to what extent. The first time that I walked…
