What we offer:

We keep things open, agile and communicative. It is all based on trust – no micromanaging, no nearshoring, no offshoring – and face-to-face communication is premium.

The whole department is located together in one office in beautiful Berlin, however due to the current situation we work and onboard 100% remotely to keep our employees safe. Our team members are self-organized within their teams, working on independent projects or closely with Product Leads, developers and UX designers. We value your thoughts and ideas and will give you the freedom to push and implement them! We offer competitive salaries and support personal growth, including functional in-house coaching. You will gain – and share – knowledge during recurring learning groups, jours fixes and our annual code camp. You are free to use the OS of your choice, the tooling you are comfortable with and set up your workspace the way you like it.

We get that balancing a family and work can be a challenge, so everyone (family or no family) gets flexible working hours and 30 days of holidays per year. 


Well, it depends. Studies have shown that men are more likely to apply for a job when they meet at least 60% of the position requirements, while others (women/non-binary) with the same percentage of match are not. (No, not all men are equal – we’re talking statistics here.

If you want an “insider tip” it would be this: apply even if you don’t meet all the requirements. Sure, we might reject your application: that’s the worst that can happen. But instead, we might redirect you to another role that could be a better fit. Could be a win-win!

Don’t reject your own application before giving us a chance to evaluate your skills and experience. We are all learning! Although the list of position requirements above is carefully crafted and considered, you might end up being a better team member than we could’ve hoped for, even though you don’t meet all the requirements. It happens more often than you’d think.
