    Short company description

    A growing team of technical determined people who believe in delivering valuable web & mobile apps.

    Requirements

    WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
    QUALITIES
    We think it’s essential to have a continuous drive for self improvement and self motivation. Instead of opposing change, we count on you reshaping your mindset to accommodate the new in your daily craft. Your initiative and accountability will open doors much faster and we trust you’ll do your best in being productive and efficient.

    Your positive and team­ oriented attitude will support you in working well with your colleagues. Good communication skills will help you create stronger connections. The secret ingredient to succeed in a rapidly expanding environment is to be highly organized and able to balance multiple simultaneous projects. Whatever the (technical) problem, utilize your skills to be part of the solution. Let your focus on leadership light up the way.

    The difference between something good and something great will be your extreme attention to detail and the consistency of your work. Performing independently, with little supervision, will unlock more of your creativity to encourage you to reach your potential. Your passion towards product and project management will fuel your inspiration to come up with original ideas on how to get things done. All these will make a major impact on your results.
