Tools we use

Bitrise CI
Since manually testing and deploying whether on our private store or Test Flight is p*in the a**, using Bitrise CI our lives become much better!
Reveal and/or Sherlock
Autolayout is a tricky beast, and what easier way to debug and test than using live 3D preview of all your views and constraints.
Visual Studio or Sublime
Well, Xcode, hm, autocomplete, hm :D, sometimes you just want light weight test editor to do some text editing.
Postman or Paw
With Postman and Paw we can consume and test APIs. It is an enormous life saver. Yeah sure, you can do all of that with cURL, but c’mon, we live in the 2020s.
iTerm or Hyper
iTerm or Hyper will allow you to customize you terminal really easy. And OhMyZSH will give you super powers, like autocomplete, git support and anything in between you would like.
Tower or SourceTree
We have divided opinions on this one, roughly half of the team uses console for git, and the other half uses tools like Tower or Sourcetree.
GitHub
All of our work is on Github. Everything goes through pull requests and code reviews with your future team members.
Slack
We use Slack for work and for fun. It’s our go-to tool for maintaining sanity both in office and remote.
Handbook
Through the years we’ve built a vast repository of knowledge related to JS, React, and Angular.

What can you
expect from us?

We offer a number of benefits, high-quality tools,
bad jokes, and a stimulating work environment.

01
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
You know the old saying – the greatest wealth is health. Regular health checks are on us, getting your five-a-day in is on you.
Flexible working hours
Hate waking up very early or fancy going for a run at the lunch break? Tailor your working hours to fit your schedule.
Paid vacation for everyone
Students or non-students, everybody deserves a carefree time-out to recharge their batteries. Bon voyage!
03
Around
the office
Free power-ups
Snack on fruit, cookies, and nuts to keep your energy levels up, then pour a cup of strong tea or coffee over it for a good measure.
Car and bike parking
Whether your ride comes on two wheels or four, don’t let it get caught in the rain. We offer free parking for bicycles and subsidize car parking.  
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
Every team gets a monthly budget to hang out and do fun stuff. While foodie teams love restaurant hopping, adrenaline seekers prefer to get locked up in escape rooms.
Bring your dog to work
If your four-legged friend doesn’t eat MacBooks, let him tag along. Your colleagues will appreciate the stress relief.
