What you can expect from us 

We are a small team of about 20 people, located in Turkey and the Netherlands. We already have customers in several countries, and their number is growing. We are keeping our team small and our velocity high. We have big plans but know that the key to success is to iterate fast. 

We love to see everyone happy and fulfilled, only together as a team we can achieve remarkable things. We believe in collaboration being the key to keeping the pace high. 

  • We are honest & transparent – We call things what they are, no sugarcoating. 
  • We honor our commitments – We say what we do and do what we say. 
  • We are curious – We love testing and even pushing boundaries, there is nothing that cannot be challenged. 
  • We are pragmatic – Great is the enemy of good, there is a time to think, and a time to act. 
  • We are evidence guided – There is no 100% certainty, but we let proof guide our decisions. 

We believe that true collaboration can only excel when you have built trust, and what is better than to do this in person. This means that this is a hybrid position; we meet in our Amsterdam office 2 days a week. The rest of the days are flexible. 

Additionally, we provide a good, startup-style package consisting of: 

  • Not a morning person? We provide flexible work hours for you to be at your best.
  • An informal yet professional work environment with a genuine start-up spirit.
  • Hybrid working philosophy – work from the office and work from home in agreement with your manager.
  • Room for creativity, new initiatives, and ideas. 

What happens next 

Ready to embark on that journey with us? Fantastic! Just hit the “Apply” and we will be in touch shortly. Please make sure you share your portfolio as well; we would love to see your past work. 

After having the first conversation, you will meet other members of our team. We collaborate closely, and often, and we all need to be comfortable working with each other. We are particularly curious about past challenges you ran into and how you have overcome them.
