Pride at PaperCut

And just like that, Pride month is over for another year! Pride Month runs throughout June to commemorate the Stonewall Riots which took place in June 1969 and to highlight the impact that LGBTQI+ communities have had on society across the world. Here at PaperCut, we reflected and celebrated Pride in style in the final […]

REVEALED: What really happens to interns at PaperCut?

IBL, in my mind, stands for ‘Incredibly Brainy Legends’. However, I’m told the more popular meaning for the acronym is ‘Industry Based Learning’. Since 2015, PaperCut has paired up with Melbourne’s Swinburne University to support year-long professional placements to students. As it happens, many of those placements have progressed into permanent roles. Just ask our […]

Return of the Constructival – episode V

Constructival is PaperCut’s version of a tech hackathon (construction + festival). This two-day event is the source of many projects that make their way into workplaces.

Here’s what happens according to an event organizer and a participant.

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).

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.

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!

This is PaperCut

This isn’t the typical PaperCut post that gives you a bunch of tips or how-tos about print management or anything like that.

We made this short film, you see, and I really wanted to share it with you.

Let me know what you think.

Composting and PaperCut: the perfect match

If I think about what really drew me to PaperCut, it’d have to be our software’s awesome potential to reduce waste globally.

So discovering that our earth-loving values extend to sustainable practices was terrific – and a real motivator to do my part locally.

That’s why I started up composting, right here in Portland!
