Cake celebrations in Schibsted Tech Polska

We love to celebrate in Schibsted Tech Polska! And for each completed project the cakes get more innovative.

So we gather again – each time more impressed by the creativity of the bakery.  And the taste of the cakes? Sweet, sweet – as the successful completion of a project should be 🙂
