This is the first post in our Meet The Host series. The idea is to let consumers see both the human side as well as the hardware side of the web hosting businesses through pictures.
Meet SiteGround (Website | Reviews)
SiteGround was founded in 2004. Today, it has 100 employees and over 250,000 domain names hosted. SiteGround also has three data centers in Chicago, Amsterdam and Singapore where their customers websites are hosted.
Quote from the Host:
What really makes the difference is our unique team and company culture. I am extremely proud to be part of a team that I can openly call a family - coming to the office doesn’t feel like coming to work, but coming to see friends with which we do fantastic things together. Everyone is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and highly professional. Besides enjoying our great office, we also spend time together at company supported vacations, teambuilding and office parties.
- Tina Kesova, SiteGround
The SiteGround office features open space, modern and relaxing atmosphere with more than 50 square feet of space per employee to foster creativity.
This is where the technical masterminds live - the corner that hosts SiteGround software operations and senior support engineers.
The software developers work closely with the customer service teams to implement client feature requests.
SiteGround crew are real beer lovers too. A rare beer collection decorates the devs corner.
The SiteGround HQ has 7 conference rooms to host meetings, trainings or day-to-day brainstorming sessions and welcome company partners and guests.
Half of the SiteGround office is a big recreation area where SG folks play different kinds of games to relax and build even further the great team spirit that makes SiteGround what it really is – one of the friendliest hosting companies!
The game and recreation area allows people to play foosball, table tennis, darts, pool table, and more.
SiteGround invests in the education and professional growth of their employees and provides free books and a library area where SG team members can sit down and read in a quiet area.
The SiteGround team knows how to party and never misses a chance to get together and celebrate big company milestones. Then, the office becomes a party corner that can even host casino games.
Each year the company organizes a teambuilding where all employees get together in informal surroundings to build further the team spirit.
Working hard, partying hard! Besides building reliable hosting platforms and climbing high peaks at teambuildings, the SiteGround people know how to have fun together.
Amsterdam Data Center - A power distribution unit (PDU) and a standard row of cabinets, full of SiteGround servers.
Chicago Data Center - The Chicago datacenter is organized into computer rooms like this, each one being about 30,000 square feet in size. The SiteGround servers reside in rooms like this one.
Singapore Data Center - The Singapore layouts are designed to allow the most dense population on the row possible, while ensuring rack power availability allows for full failover.
Singapore Data Center - Redundant APC power strips provide power to SiteGround dual-path servers.
A large thank you goes to Tina at SiteGround who helped collect and caption the photos for this post. I hope you enjoyed our first edition of our Meet The Host series.
