Poker & Mac Minis: Inside BigCommerce's Sydney HQ

Many tech companies have automated tracker systems to see how well software development is progressing. But the screen in the Surry Hills office of ecommerce software developer BigCommerce also counts down to when the weekly post-work poker game begins on a Friday.

Many of our featured workspaces sensibly place an emphasis on making sure the office is a place people can relax as well as work, and BigCommerce follows the same model, with a fridge filled with drinks and an Xbox connected to the tracker screen.

There's also a plethora of Mac Minis, which are now being used as the standard-issue computer, and a teleconference room to connect to the Check the shots below for more office photos.

    All that crap and you have to call the USA to cancel an account. These guys have found a great way to ensure that those cancelling accounts will make sure to tell everyone what a bad experience they had. You can't cancel your account online, you have to call the USA at the crack of dawn and wait for the prompts while paying international dialling fees.
