Life At Intouch is a blog series about the wonderful people that make Intouch successful.
The aim is to show what our team are passionate about outside of work. This week we have Regional Operations Manager Sherry Karam giving an insight into life at the El Gouna Office.
Introducing El Gouna
If you were not aware, Intouch.com are operating from El Gouna as well as Dublin. El Gouna is a modern resort town on Egypt’s Red Sea, near Hurghada. It’s built along the shore and on small islands, and is known for its lagoons, coral reefs and sandy beaches.
At Intouch we are huge proponents of keeping the mind and body active. Squash is an incredibly popular game here in Egypt. As a team we regularly play, our office located right beside a squash club. It gets very competitive when you step on the court!
With the incredible weather we get here in El Gouna we often swim in the ocean to cool down. We love taking advantage of the turquoise water for snorkeling or scuba diving. Last July the entire team swam with Dolphins in the red sea!
Work hard play hard
We currently have an amazing team of 8 developers. With some of the best seafood there are regular team outings to try the best spots in town.
We love to eat at Intouch! Every week there is a dinner or BBQ with the team. It’s important that once the work is finished we relax as friends.
Where We Work
When we aren’t sailing on yachts or swimming with dolphins we can be found at our office in G Space.
The ultra modern co-working space is the perfect environment to get work done without feeling like you’re stuck in a cubicle.
Working in El Gouna is the perfect balance of work and fun, there’s an endless number of post work activities to do with an awesome group to do it with. If you’re a developer in Egypt and are interested in joining our team feel free to send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
