Job Description

They eat their own dog food.
And, with a 5-star glassdoor rating, it shows.

Especially within their Development team, their culture is one that promotes personal growth. With a best argument wins approach, everyone’s opinion is heard regardless of seniority. They like to encourage positive technical debates. Passion, potential, intellectual capacity and fit are given more weight in hiring decisions than specific technical experience. They’re not as nitpicky about tech stack as some employers, because they know solid engineers can pick up new, similar, frameworks in short order. Their goal is to foster an environment where nobody feels like the smartest person in the room anymore, and everyone learns from each other.
