Do you imagine yourself surrounded by brilliant minds and creative personas? Want to feel at home in the workplace and have the opportunity to grow and learn while you work?

This also means we are continually improving the way we work and are looking for more brilliant minds to help shape our future.

We’re a young and talented group of entrepreneurs and engineers with groundbreaking ideas designed to contribute towards a better tomorrow. We provide smart solutions for companies of all sizes and pride ourselves on our unparalleled, dedicated service. We work on projects of all different tech stacks and could always use more hands on any of them. Not only will you work mostly with React Native, but you will also have the opportunity to work on native mobile apps (Swift/Objective-C & Kotlin/Java), Java Spring backends, python and more.

    is up to you.

  • We are a team of responsible and dependable developers. We understand and value autonomy, as long as it’s accompanied with accountability. We trust that you will deliver the work you agreed upon or communicate when you can’t.

As most of our company still codes (even our CEO codes), we understand the ebbs and flows that come with software development. Some months you feel like you can take on the world, and other months you just feel like doing product maintenance. For this reason we are structuring our new teams in a way to accommodate this, but in the end it all boils down to good communication. As long as both parties are open about expectations and needs we can find a solution.

We’ve found that people with a freelancing background, or who’s got an entrepreneurial spirit fit well with the team. Self-motivation and good communication goes a long way.
