Professional development
Learning & development
We believe that honest two-way feedback is the foundation of growth. In our bi-weekly one-on-one talks and quarterly 360 reviews, we discuss what’s good and what could be better.
Versatile projects
Our teams get to work on very interesting projects for renowned brands and clients from a range of industries, some of which we can’t namedrop due to NDAs.
Educational budget
If you’re eager to learn, we’re eager to help. Every employee receives an educational budget to buy books, attend courses or visit conferences.
Contributing to open source
Sharing is caring doesn’t only apply to chocolate. Our way of giving back to the community is publishing open-source libraries and resources.
Paid language courses
Paid language courses help our employees master the English language, in addition to being fluent in their programming languages.
Doing a career switch
We don’t have a sorting hat to tell you where you belong, but we will support your career switch from one job position to another. More info here.
Traveling on business
Having clients all over the world means our employees sometimes have to travel to and work from beautiful locations. Gotta do what you gotta do.
02
Health &
Family life
Subsidized recreation
Stay in shape with a sponsored fitness membership of your choice. You never know when the elevator is going to go out of order.
Sponsored health checks

Working remotely
We like people who go the extra mile, so we don’t let miles and kilometers limit us. Office location? Anywhere. It’s all about flexibility.
Fun and games budget

Bring your dog to work
