As well as the usual kit, we will get you set up with...


Gmail

We use Gmail for our work email: it ties in nicely with Calendar and Drive.

Once you have logged into your account we will send you the details for all the other apps we use.

Your email address is
yuriy.boev@blue-leaf.co.uk


Slack

Slack is the system we use for all our internal communications. Slack uses "channels" rather than direct emails which dramatically cuts down the number of emails we send and receive and keeps everyone in the loop.

There are a number of channels that you will be automatically added to which are listed below. Feel free to look at all the channels and see which you fancy joining!

#ama - for asking any burning questions to Rob and Adrian
#bl-1er-ideas - for suggest improvements we can make
#bl-general - for team-wide communications and announcements
#bl-retail news - to see Blueleaf's tweets, press and other industry news
#bl-slackdos - for paying kudos to members of the team
#bl-tannoy - a broadcast channel for anyone to send out business updates
#random - a place for non-work banter, links and articles or interest or humour

Your login will be emailed to you


JIRA

JIRA is another system that is fundamental to the day-to-day running of Blueleaf.

All our projects and timesheets are managed through it and we use it to store key information.

Your login will be emailed to you


10,000ft

We use 10,000ft for scheduling everyone's work and this is managed by Sarah, our Traffic Manager.

At the start of each week, Sarah will go though your schedule with you.

To be able to view 10,000ft:
