**Why apply** Looking for a good job in a fun company building exciting startups? We offer flexible working, paid holidays, laptop and bonuses related to business success. **Work at your own pace**We don’t believe that productivity is a 9 AM to 5 PM thing. It’s about owning tasks and projects whilst working as part of a remote team. We encourage our team to make time for experiences, friends and fun… and if you want to, to build your own venture. **Live Where You Want**We live and work as distributed teams from different time zones (based between UK and Easter Europe), and have optimised the business to do this with great results.

We also love working on purpose driven projects: a search engine donating its profits to ecological causes, a mental health AI driven learning platform and children communication charity for example… **Yearly Company Retreats**A key to making a remote team work well is culture - and as part of that, an annual in person catchup is a great way of getting to know each other, communicate, celebrate and share experience. **Learn More and enrich your experience**We promote a learning environment and we aren’t satisfied with our current level of knowledge. We encourage ourselves and every newcomer to learn more, adopt new knowledge, try new programming languages, and adopt innovations in existing and new technologies.
