We’ve reported on DianDian’s super fast speed. After only three months in the Innovation Works office, the light-blogging start-up based on the popular Western micro-blog, Tumblr.com, moved out into it’s own office. After raising an whopping US$10 million in funding from Sequoia Capital and Ceyuan Ventures, DianDian founder Jack Xu, wanted to aggressively expand his team and user base which now stands at over 3 million and aims to capture 10 million by year end.

Last Friday, Ben and I were invited to chat to Jack and have a quick look at the impressive office. It really felt  more like an American style office of a well funded start-up. When chatting to Jack, we were generously given coke, tea and a nice big juicy apple sitting on a nice comfy couch over looking Tsinghua and Peking University in the distance.

The workers themselves looked very comfortable, sitting in expensive ergonomic chairs with air inflated head rests. The group meeting behind us flashy new Mac Book Air’s, reviewing a screen.

Here’s some pictures to show you how DianDian’s office looks like. Check out the bunk beds for people to rest.

A company doesn’t get itself in this kind of situation by not being dependable and concise when it comes to delivering parcels and letters.
