Your Attitude

  • Entrepreneurial, hands-on and willing to tackle the challenges at hand.
  • Capable of independently solving problems taking own initiative within a team environment.

Our Offer

  • An extremely dynamic environment where you are encouraged to develop your skills and share your knowledge in an industry with a bright future.
  • Competitive benefits, including a value-creation sharing program to further employee-ownership.
  • Intense dedication and lots of flexibility, demanded by the scale-up context, are offset by a very high degree of empowerment, autonomy and an equally-flexible telework arrangement.
