MyHeritage expands

Our office is located in a picturesque Templar estate, over 100 years old, in the village of Bnei Atarot in Israel. Peaceful and green, yet only a ten minute drive from Israel's international airport, and conveniently located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. A great working environment for a genealogy company, or any company for that matter. Until now, we've been working in rather cozy (read: overpacked) conditions in this lovely place (click any photo to enlarge):

I chose a vintage travel theme for the office, ordered 20 unique posters from Art.com and had them professionally framed in Israel. To compensate the employees for putting up with an occasionally overzealous ceo, I added the best ergonomic chairs and monitors, and my favorites - plants and flowers.

And now, just a couple of weeks ago, we've opened a second office on the same estate, in order to expand and recruit more people. Here's a view of the new office (click to enlarge):

There's plenty of room for growth:

... and we're hiring. If you're an excellent Web developer, or you simply rock at what you do, we'd be glad to have you on the team - drop us an email to jobs -at- myheritage.com.

In this blog my co-workers and I will shed some light on what goes on behind the scenes at MyHeritage; we'll share our thoughts on genealogy and technology, and try to unravel one of the greatest mysteries of our time: how to have fun (not to mention a life) when working so hard in an Internet startup.
