You’ll work out of our
office and engage with the team in a very collaborative way. Our teams are
small. So, all individuals work on tasks that have immediate, visible impact.

problems together, face-to-face. 
We work on Macbook Pro or

Mirra chairs and have kitchens stocked with drinks and snacks. We are a
friendly group of people and have a lot of fun working hard together.
