Kinder Landing 2.0: Welcome to Kinder!

Hi there, welcome to Kinder!

Before you start your first day (or second, or third, or six hundred forty fifth), we thought it would be nice for you to read up on how we tend to work around here.

The Kinder landing contains information about the different communication platforms we use, the building we’re in, how to get your transportation costs refunded, Google Drive, all the tools you’ll use to get the work done, and much more.

If anything is unclear after reading this you can always send Laura or Shona a message on Slack (we’ll get to that later ;) ) or an old-fashioned email.

*LET OP! You'll notice parts of the text in these pages are pink. Try clicking on it and see what happens :)
