"Bringing distributed teams closer together, professionally and personally, enabling them to build their own day-to-day-structures, routines and culture has never been more important. The connection of people and knowledge is key for our mission, and we are looking forward to work with bonfire to bring our 10 global hubs closer together."

Florian Bogenschuetz

CEO @ Wayra Germany

"Remote work is the logic consequence of a globalized world. And in such a world, remote sociality becomes equally important as productivity. We are already fans of bonfire."

Axel Stellbrink

Founder @ Stellbrink & Partner

"Social interaction is essential to maintain the team spirit in a remote or hybrid team, and I really love that bonfire encourages those "nonsense" interactions like we would do in office."

Niao Wu

CEO @ ON

"In the digital world, teams increasingly consist of experts from all over the world who work together in complex environments towards a common goal. A strong relationship with colleagues including social aspects helps to define personal strengths and enforces the team spirit. All of this leads to high quality work and improves the overall result."
