Currently, we are a growing team of 125+ people, but still looking for new colleagues who make an impact and believe in the same ideas and values as we do.

Full time contractor contract – fully remote working from anywhere in Europe!
Firstly – a meeting with Andy. During the meeting, Andy, Client Services Director, gets to know you a bit better and tries to understand if you’d be a good fit for the role, and at the same time answers all your questions.
Secondly – if your interview goes well, you will be sent a follow-up exercise (for which you will be compensated) that aims to test your project management skills.
And that’s it!
