So, after reading the Guardian article, some of you guys were slightly surprised that UG is located in Russia. However, that article revealed only a few aspects of how UG works and who are the people standing behind it, so we decided to share some insights about ourselves in more informal surroundings.

Fun little fact #1: Drinking Jack Daniel's is pretty much a part of UG's corporate culture. Not that everyone's getting shit-faced all day long but having a drink or two isn't forbidden

Fun little fact #2: Everyone brings a keepsake to the office from any business trip or a vacation. According to a tradition, it's always a dildo or some penis-shaped artifact. Seriously, we've got a whole rack of penises here.

Fun little fact #3: While I'm typing this post, our community manager is kicking an iOS developer's ass in Mortal Kombat XL on PS4. Workday was over 4 hours ago.

Got something to ask? Go ahead!




Please, leave the technical questions to our support team. Feedback and suggestions are welcome here.
So, yeah...

As far as UG corporate culture goes, I have a query:

Nice. Except for the one sitting on the heater...wtf?

How many of you participate here anonymously under a "standard user" account?

Did you imply above that you're one of the rare female staff members?

Now you've gone and done it. The number of posts/questions/responses you're going to get probably just quadrupled, and 90% of them will be really stupid...

Seems like a pretty decent place to work, although it sounds like some of the office shenanigans wouldn't be allowed in the US. (Too many people here busy looking for something to be offended by...)

Not every country has a tradition of cereal and milk, particularly when most of the world has a greater propensity for lactose intolerance.

However, buckwheat "cereal" is apparently a thing according to le wikis, so your question might not be completely off-base: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kasha
