Why us?

We don't reinvent the wheel. If there's a product that fits our business need - we buy it.
Our teams are small, empowered, lean and collaborative.
Teamwork is very important to us so we are looking for engineers who are open to share their knowledge, listen to their peers, paying also attention to details and quality and work together to solve complex problems. You must be a self-starter and able to perform with minimal supervision while working alongside intelligent colleagues who've checked their egos at the door.
We've built a strong culture, and we're looking for engineers who can help us maintain it.
