Come to the brombeere side… (that’s our color).

What we offer

So what’s the team like? What started as a university project has grown organically over the last seven years into a distinctly international crew. We keep things open, agile and communicative, with pair programming widely practiced and encouraged. It is all based on trust – no micromanaging, no distributed teams, no nearshoring, no offshoring – face to face communication is premium. That is why the whole development team is located together in one office in beautiful Berlin!

We are constantly evolving and looking to integrate new technologies in our technology stack. We currently:

Version with Git

Build with Gradle and Webpack

Our engineers are self-organized within their teams, working on components and independent projects together and closely with product managers and UX designers. We value your thoughts and ideas and will give you the freedom to push and implement them.

We get that balancing a family and work can be a challenge, so everyone (family or no family) gets flexible work hours. Work when you work best.
