Congratulations to everyone on April 6! We call it World Happy Website Day...or, in other words, the birthday of the Drudesk website support service ;) It started as a small team inside the InternetDevels Drupal development agency, and has grown into a full-fledged affiliated company. Happy birthday, dear child! ;) You are growing incredibly fast!
Within this 1 year, hundreds of websites around the world have received the support and maintenance they needed — be it bug fixes or new functionality, server monitoring or website audit, updates or hack fixes. When we first introduced Drudesk to you in our blog post, we mentioned that these guys’ superpowers will make all your problems go away. Say “Drudesk” - and your website is working perfectly! ;) Remember? But that’s just the beginning of the story about the magic their powers have worked during this incredible year.
Drudesk magic in action: a manifold growth in numbers!
Seems like Drudesk also knows the secret spell for multiplying the number of employees ;) First there were just half a dozen guys on Drudesk team. And now they are almost 50!
We have added more brilliant developers. Also lots of charming sales managers have joined Drudesk, now that we have created the sales department.
This particular photo was taken on New Year party, and the team has grown more since then.
And we have heard they plan to reach 150 people! But don’t tell anyone — this is a secret just between you and us :)
Working together in 3 different cities
Drudesk is everywhere! We work in the offices of 3 Ukrainian cities. The head office in the city of Lutsk is not enough!
Drudesk also works in the ancient Lviv:
And in the beautiful Rivne:
Multiplying the powers: new services added
The initial idea was about a support service for Drupal websites. But now Drudesk has also started to work with Wordpress, as well as mastered server monitoring. And, of course, the next leap is for Drudesk to begin building websites from scratch. These websites are small, but they already exist! Given Drudesk guys’ superpowers, it’s easy to believe that “small” will become “big” in a blink of an eye :)
Quick spreading across the globe
The Drudesk ideas has spread like wildfire around the world, so we have clients from USA, Australia, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Spain and many other countries.
Teleportation to great Drupal events
Drudesk has sponsored or/and visited many Ukrainian and international Drupal events, among which: DrupalCon Barcelona, DrupalCon Asia, Lviv Euro DrupalCamp and more.
Sharing the powers and growing young talents
Ivan Tibezh, Drupal architect who is the CTO of Drudesk, holds classes for young people interested in web development.
Doing the impossible: “There has never been a problem we couldn’t solve”
We asked Andrew Lutsiuk, Senior Customer Service Manager of Drudesk, about the incredible popularity of this service.
“The Drudesk idea is unique. There are a lot of Drupal companies, but most of them prefer to build websites from scratch, because it's easier. No need to understand someone else's code, to correct others' mistakes. Very few companies are willing to take such tasks, because they are risky. If you change something without knowing the dependence of one functionality from the other, the website could break down. That’s why you have to be very careful and know what you are doing. Of course, problems in our work occur. But there has never been a problem we couldn’t solve!”
Happy birthday again, dear Drudesk! Make more websites shine! Have plenty of customers...who could contact you right away ;)
