If Covid taught us anything, then it’s that we need the office for collaborative, creative interactions with our colleagues, not to sit behind a screen all day. Working from home or remotely are part of our company DNA from the start.

In short: a modern start-up environment with tons of exciting tasks and a team that you can surf with even the biggest waves (and we mean that quite literally 😉!)
