How we work

Working in small project teams using scrum or kanban or scrumban depending on what fits the project best. The better is to be a true team player who is able to work independently. Everyone is expected to participate on the daily standup. Other than that, you can schedule the day as you wish. Sometimes we have evening meetings (ie at 6pm) due to the time zone difference (SanFrancisco vs Budapest).

What will you learn

We want you to learn our technologies and be open to always learn something new. We help you with on-the-job training and we have online training hub access also. In case training is needed, but we do not have it in-house, your manager will find the way!

Why we love our office

The location is amazing, surrounded by lots of restaurants and bars with options to grab food, beer or even ice cream outside. It's easy to get there by public transportation, but we also have bike parking spaces. The office is very spacious with comfortable couches, a long dining table where we love chatting, and a fully-equipped kitchen where we visit the snack and drink storage pretty often.
