For you
Our team is talented, diverse, and enjoys the support of a well-defined growth plan. You’ll enjoy working in an inspiring environment with great colleagues and flexible working hours. Having started out as a fast-paced start-up, we’ve moved rapidly into scale-up mode. Despite our growth, that start-up, can-do mentality remains, and we plan to hang onto it. Whether working together in our office at the Science Park, or remotely from our homes, we like to get things done. A competitive salary and secondary benefits are all part of a package that makes it attractive to join our tech-company. Please be aware that an EU work permit is mandatory, and we do not offer relocation.
