Culture & Perks

  • Empowered teams

We take the best person with the right skills, 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.

  • Retreats and team building

At least once a year we invite the global team to an in-person retreat at a beautiful location (most likely Thailand at the beginning of 2023).
