About us

We love to work on meaningful, user-centric products with like-minded individuals and companies to create work that matters.

How we do

This guide is a reminder of our core principles and strives to create a common understanding for our team members, partners, clients, and friends. Imagine a poor man's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but for okay bueno, one of the weirder places in this universe. Don’t forget your towel.

Do good, feel good

The core principle of our daily doing is to create digital products and experiences that make us, and you, feel good. To ensure we can feel good about what we do, we commit to only work with people we like on projects we believe in.

Always meet at eye-level

Our partners aren’t simply clients, they are extended parts of our team and we are a part of theirs, so we’ll welcome them as such and treat them the same way we treat our team members. This applies in both directions.

Keep it tight

Staying small is a choice, not a limitation. We believe in the agility and efficiency of tight-knit teams. We advocate for a process of co-creation, without project and account managers, and only the necessary stakeholders, so teams can consist of only the people making a difference on a project.

Think first before you move

Before we start working on a new project, we deep dive into the current solution and market environment so we can advise our partners with expertise. In the end, we see ourselves as a strategic digital partner, not an agency, tech partner, or design studio.

Focus on the right things

We’re here to achieve goals, not to fulfil tasks, and for that we need to understand our partners’ businesses, their risks and opportunities, their strength and weaknesses. Simply said: we won’t make a button red because someone says so, but we will help our partners meet their KPIs smart and efficiently.

Talk is cheap

Yeah, this meeting should have been an email. And that email should have been a slack message. We despise overhead and keep our communication lean with transparent project planning, regular check ins and focused short workshops sessions. Our job is to get shit done.

Commit fast

We believe that smart, fast, and iterative decisions are key to success. Even if we don’t always agree with a proposed direction, there is no half-assing it: we voice concerns, define how to measure the success of the direction, then fully commit to it until we can validate our feelings.

Tough Love

Yes, we have an attitude: we are straight forward with our team members and our partners. We challenge decisions and we advise, even when we haven’t been asked. We can be annoying, sure, but in the end, we’re looking out for each other. And you are encouraged to do the same.

Pick projects wisely

Time is a scarce resource: we value it highly, we invest it wisely. We are driven by work that is worth our time, work that is interesting, impactful, profitable. Unfortunately, this means saying no to project inquiries and client requests – it's not easy, but it's necessary.

Entrepreneurial at heart

We spend 20% of our time on our own expense, building and launching own products and experiences. It’s an investment we are happy to take as everyone benefits from it: we as a team can grow with freely defined challenges, build new revenue streams, and gain entrepreneurial experiences our partners can benefit from.

Careers

All jobs are bastards, but some suck less than others. Welcome to your new remote-first product team 👌

Senior Product Engineer

As a small, tight-knit team, we are conceptualizing, designing, and developing outstanding digital products for all devices – for our partners as well as for our own product portfolio – and looking for a Senior Product Engineer to join the gang.

In your role, you will be a contributing part of the whole product lifecycle, from conceptualizing products and features to releasing them, while leading the development efforts.

While we are mostly working on Web & Mobile Applications we love to branch out into the field of digital experiments, eCommerce, and Digital Branding. We pride ourselves in not having any Project or Account Managers – our project teams manage themselves.

We are curious, love exploring and pushing ourselves, and are looking for a similar mindset in the ideal candidate for this role.

  • You like to build things and solve problems – independently and collaboratively within a strong small team
  • Strong expertise in current web development technologies, especially Javascript – from modern Web App Frameworks to React Native
  • Experience in Backend Development, ideally based on PHP & MySQL, as well as DevOps, and are keen to learn more
  • Proven track record of developing production projects
  • Strong understanding of the digital ecosystem and what defines good digital products



Traits that will help you succeed

  • You focus on the results, not on the technology used
  • You find simple solutions and tame complexities
  • You can quickly evaluate options and make decisions based on project requirements
  • You think efficiently about solutions, yet never forget about the big picture
  • You communicate clearly – at least in English, ideally also in German



Our benefits

  • Remote and Hybrid-remote friendly (you should live within CET +/- 2)
  • Annual education budget of € 1.200
  • 26 days of holidays
  • Yearly team retreat (well, when the pandemic situation is resolved)
  • No bullshit meetings



What we are looking for in an application

Write us a few words about your motivation – what drives you, what are you keen to learn, and why would you want to work with us.

Our hiring process

We don't "trust the process" – we don't even have one. High up on our agenda is to not work with assholes, so basically we'll jump on a call to figure out if we get along and to give you the chance to tell us a little bit more about the products you have worked on.
