Company culture

  • Empowered teams: We take the best person with the right skills, and then inspire them to use them! We trust our team and give them the space and ownership to excel and achieve.

  • Flexible time management: We believe work should adapt to your life, not the other way around. We only schedule a few fixed meetings every week – you're free to arrange the rest of your time as you like.

  • Inclusive culture: It’s our priority to make our whole team feel included, appreciated and respected. Our global, culturally diverse team is our most important asset.

  • Remote-friendly: We’re a fully remote, global company. As long as you’re not on Mars (the WiFi is terrible we heard), being part of our team from the comfort of your own home works perfectly well for us.

What you’ll get

  • Entitlement to a work computer (choice of equipment).

  • Unlimited remote days and flexible working hours.

  • Annual team off-sites (Thailand was a blast last year & Vietnam will be even blast-ier).
