How we work.
We are a Berlin-first, remote-friendly company. In other words, Berlin is our HQ and the only location with physical offices.
Our team also spreads across wider Germany, Spain, UK and the US. We rely on a clear purpose, async collaboration, distributed decision-making and mutual trust to achieve our ambitious goals.
What we live by.
These values are the foundation of our unique company culture:
Default to Transparency
We share information freely with our colleagues to ensure clarity and alignment.
Supporting and maintaining accountability means more than just sticking to a to-do list: it means taking ownership for the outcomes.
We know that whatever the question, communication is the answer.
Strive to Learn and Grow
We relish the chance to continuously grow and share what we’ve learned so that others can evolve, too.
Support Each Other
We help our colleagues, treat them with respect, and celebrate their achievements.
Optimize for Outcomes
We focus on the why and what, instead of how. We seek opportunities to simplify and fixate on the right outcome.
In order to learn quickly, foster innovation, and create impact, we dare to take informed risks.
What we offer
Work-life balance & wellbeing
With 31 days of vacation, local holidays, quarterly wellbeing days, unlimited home-office and flexible hours, you get plenty of time to recharge and adapt the way you work to your prefered lifestyle.
Diverse, international environment
We take pride in our supportive company culture that fosters empowerment, creativity, and mutual respect. We nurture the sense of community and belonging, celebrating our differences and connecting over 40 different nationalities.
Opportunity to have an impact
We distribute authority to those closest to the challenges we face, with clearly defined decision-making responsibilities. Own your field, take bold risks, and make key decisions that impact the future of our business.
Phenomenal learning culture
Benefit from quarterly days of learning reserved exclusively for your professional development. Take part in diverse in-house training and learning sessions, or use your individual budget for external growth opportunities. Most importantly, learn on the job, through challenging work, innovation and iteration.
A thoughtful selection of perks
Enjoy a variety of additional benefits, such as public transportation coverage, home-office allowance, paid travel to HQ, professional mental health support, and much more! We frequently update the list with new offerings to accommodate our team’s needs and preferences.
Relocation and visa support
We offer a €2500 relocation bonus to new employees moving between countries, and we will assist and sponsor your visa application process for Germany and Spain.
This summer we are running an experiment to test the 4-day work week. We get an extra 13 days off—every Friday during the course of June, July and August 2022, with no change to our compensation.
Healthy lunch (Berlin)
Enjoy a delicious selection of free, plant-based food made fresh everyday in our very own restaurant, La Cantina.
