Why PaperCut cares about kids coding

Recently, the pitter patter of mini PaperCutter feet echoed through the office as they dropped their parents off at work and headed to Code Camp.

Twelve eager students spent three days not only learning to code, but applying their learnings by building their own game.

Here’s why we’re teaching them young (no, it’s not for the cheap labour – promise).

Designing a job swap

A while ago I swapped jobs.

Nothing unusual in that. People change jobs all the time, right?

Except … this swap was only for three weeks.

Let me explain.

Meet the poetry-paraphrasing PaperCut Integrations team

Ryan Reichenberg is the newest member of the greatly expanded Integrations team. The team’s grown 300% this year.

PaperCut’s growth has meant an increase in the number of customers wanting to integrate PaperCut into their existing systems. The demand has somewhat escaped Alec capabilities and therefore – all new team!

Getting PaperCut ‘n’ crafty with our paper recycling

Once upon a time, a recycling bin sat in the corner, gorging itself on unwanted printouts. After the installation of PaperCut MF, it was used sparingly. A very good thing.

I thought I’d give these scraps a second chance at life in the following daggy but practical uses for reusing paper in the office.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

In the lead up to International Women’s Day this year, we asked female leaders within PaperCut about their workplace experiences.

We were keen to not only celebrate their contributions, but also recognise women for the challenges they continually face and overcome in the male-dominated IT industry.

Here’s what they had to say.

It’s Employee Appreciation Day every day

Employees are cool.

They’re the ones that get stuff done and make you look good – but only if you look after them. We get stuff done at PaperCut because boy, do we recognise and appreciate our team!

Here’s what appreciation looks like at PaperCut.

Giving back to the community through our new leave initiative

We believe in providing a better future for our planet and the people who live on it.

By following our core values, we’ve grown into a successful business over the past 20 years.

So how do we make sure our caring culture continues as we do? Here’s just one way.

20 years of PaperCut cutting paper

PaperCut turns 20 this month! And, as you might expect at this “significant date” of our company life, we’ve gotten all sentimental and introspective. So strap in and enjoy a wander back through the archives!

First, a look at what PaperCut looked like back in the day.

Digital asset libraries, virtual ponds… Just another killer Constructival

Ah, Constructival. Two glorious days when every PaperCutter swaps their nine-to-five hat for a let’s-make-something-rad-’cause-we-can sombrero.

Where new ideas and innovations burst forth from the woodwork like bugs in a rushed end-of-year release.

Find out what went down, and what 2018 saw us Frankenstein into existence for the ultimate hackathon.

Alec and his beloved print management integrations

I’m pretty handy at sorting out my mother-in-law’s internet problems. And my brother’s laptop viruses. But when it comes to APIs, my knowledge runs out after “try turning it off and on again”.

So I caught up with resident API and integrations geek Alec for a better understanding of the role that 3rd party integrations play in the PaperCut ecosystem.

The PaperCut Band strikes a chord and jams for a cause

Every now and then, a few PaperCut musos (myself included) get together for a jam as The PaperCut Band.

Putting as much energy into performing as we do developing smashing print management, this year’s Battle of the Agile Bands saw us really play from the heart – and for a great cause.

Read on for the cliff notes!

Life after maternity leave

Last year I was fortunate to welcome our newest family member – a joyous occasion celebrated by our little family (especially big sister), extended family, friends and my work family.

I’m back at work now, so here’s my list of adjustments, realities and what I’m mastering to ensure I can survive work post-maternity leave!
