It is designed to help handle daily operations of the space from both the staff and member sides of the house. Nadine has been in continuous use and development since 2007 There are a number of ways our values are expressed in the design decisions we have made building out Nadine. For example, Nadine reminds the staff to take new member pictures for the photo wall rather than directly nagging the member. Although it could be more “efficient” to have members provide their own photo, it’s more beneficial in the long run to have the staff do it as part of the onboarding process. Photos taken by the staff are large, clear, and in focus; match the rest of the member photos; and it gives the staff another opportunity to connect and break the ice with the new member. -Office Nomads- Co-Founder and Director of Technology Apr 2007 – Present Office Nomads is a coworking community dedicated to cultivating a dynamic, creative and collaborative environment for Seattle’s nomadic workforce.
