Pow Wow Q3
The Raketech team came together again for our quarterly Pow Wow (internal company conference) to review our achievements over the past three months and hash out the plan for the rest of the year. As always, the most valued team players were recognised and rewarded with a Raketech Value Award and a fancy dinner for two!
We met at the InterContinental hotel for a morning session and kicked off with a fun game of ultimate ‘thumb wars’, to help energise the group before we sat down to listen to Jesper Kärrbrink, Mr Green’s CEO. We were delighted to have Jesper speak to us about Mr Green’s impressive journey over the past 10 years, sharing some excellent knowledge on the gaming industry today, his view on the importance of corporate social responsibility and what we need to do collectively to drive the iGaming sector forward.
Our very own CEO, Michael Holmberg, was on hand to address what we had achieved over the past few months and what was in store for the remainder of 2018. We relaunched some of our key products to improve UX, and further enhance our focus on responsible affiliate marketing – we are also pleased to have partnered with Sper, a trade organisation with a mission to drive the Swedish gaming industry towards a more responsible and sustainable regulated future.
HR Director, Martin Schillig, made a pleasing announcement of a new initiative called ‘Celebration Days’, which now means that all staff can opt-in to use their public holiday days as a holidays at a time that suits them best – this went down very well with the team, no wonder why, with 14 public holidays per year in Malta! It only helps us be more flexible than we already are – having an opportunity to work remotely and, now, being able to choose our own celebration days!
The iGaming industry awards season kicked off last week in Malta, and we had a great night celebrating with our peers at the iGaming Idol event and Raketech-sponsored after party. Drinks were flowing well into the night, and we hope that our guests equally enjoyed the free bar and Raketech hangover packs for the next morning.
Raketech was nominated for three EGR awards taking place in London later this month – making this the third consecutive year of nominations for the headline EGR Affiliate Operator of the Year award – we hope that third time’s the charm. Next up is the Sports Betting Community Awards (SBC) in December, followed by the iGB Affiliate Awards at the start of 2019 – a busy few months of events celebrating the best of the best in the online gambling industry.
We are looking forward to the next Pow Wow and Christmas party extravaganza in December – we are always on the lookout for new people to join Raketech, so please check out our careers page.
