Perks & Culture
We have created a way of working that reflects our values in all aspects of the business, we have an open salary policy (yes, people are paid based on their skills and capability, I know, so edgy) and we make sure that everyone is happy and well. (no such thing as unpaid overtime, do an extra hour or two and we’ll give it back to you as paid leave in lieu).
