You can expect

We want you to be happy. One of the ways we can do that is to make sure that you get rewarded for your achievements and get a fair compensation package for your skills and what you bring to the table.

It's important to take care of yourself. That's why we'll always encourage you to take a vacation and use your free days to hang out with friends & family, and not work overtime. There should always be a balance. This goes for workplace as well.
Work whenever & wherever it suits you and tailor your way of working to your schedule. You have the freedom. As simple as that.

Always striving to go to the next level without impacting the quality of our work means that we are constantly questioning our methods and adopting new practices. 
Conferences, coaching, books, courses, lectures.. you name it. So go on, try out new things and discover new technologies and we'll be there to support you along the way.

Healthy body, healthy mind, right? Stay fit with an activity of your choosing.
And besides regular health checks and 100% covered sick leave, we have your back for other (unexpected) medical expenses.
Focus on getting better and let us take care of the rest.

Nothing can bring you closer to your teammates than out-of-work socializing. That's why every team gets a budget to spend on activities of their choosing. Is it going to be karting or steak fine dining? Maybe a trampoline? Either way, it will include at least one shot.
