Robin is the leading hybridworkplace experience platform. Since 2014, we’ve empowered people to do their best work by building tech solutions that fuel vibrant workplace experiences. Our platform redefines work and community building for hybrid companies everywhere. With industry-leading desk booking and room scheduling software alongside our powerful workplace analytics, our mission is to empower people to do great work and foster a sense of community.
We believe in creating a workplace environment where magic happens, where the best work gets done when employees have the best of both worlds. Some days that’s conjuring up innovation from the comfort of home, and there are other days when that takes place at our Robin Croatia office, located just south of Maksimir park. As our teams value the energy of in-person collaboration and the productivity of heads-down remote work, we ask our Robinauts to come into the office at least two days a week, so we can live by our customers’ experiences and address pain points to make our product even better.
