But what makes this company “home” for all employees? And what makes it so special for everyone who works there? We gathered the top 10 facilities provided by Tamatem that makes this place the second home of all employees: 


1- Massage Chair: Had a rough day? Neck and back hurts from sitting at your desk for long hours? The massage chair is a couple of steps away! We care about our employees’ health and so we have a massage chair that all employees can use and benefit from. 

2- Football Wednesday: Are you good at football? If yes, you are in the right place! Pick a team and join our highly competitive, yet fun football game every Wednesday after work! 

3- Tea and coffee clubs: Are you a coffee or tea person? We have two groups of people at Tamatem, one that loves coffee and one that loves tea. After lunch, one person from each group prepares coffee/tea for the entire group.

4- Lunch time: Lunch time is sacred at Tamatem, everyone gets hungry by 1-2 pm. The entire team usually eat lunch together, lunch time is made for people to get to know each other better and talk about anything, but work. 

5- Cards tournaments (Tareneeb/Trix): We have a cards tournament on a monthly basis, those tournaments are usually done on our app or after working hours at the office. Such tournaments help us take our games to the ground and have fun together playing the game we all love. 

6- Healthy habits: We suggest healthy habits for the entire team on a weekly basis that can help the employees live a healthy life. Those include: Drinking water, less sugar, exercise… We also do a stretching together on daily basis. 

7- Team activities: Monthly activities are planned for the entire team to build stronger team bond. This includes anything from paintball, BBQ, laser tag, community service and so on. If you have any activity in mind, feel free to share it with us!

8- Breakfast area: At Tamatem, you will find bread, cereal, and milk for everyone! Each employee can prepare the breakfast of their choice and enjoy it. Just like the kitchen at home. 

9- Timmy tea time: Tim, our CGO, makes the best tea in the world! Every Thursday after lunch, Tim prepares delicious tea with some heavenly cookies for the entire team. No better way to start your weekend than with Tim’s tea and cookies! 

10- Umbrellas for everyone: A walk in the business park on a rainy day can be unpleasant. That’s why Tamatem has umbrellas that employees can use to walk around. 

Tamatem is not just a “workplace”, its a second home, a place to build friendships, learn new things every day, have fun, meet people and develop professionally and personally. Its the perfect place to be!
