In a growing company organized the way we are, the traditional employer-employee relationship is more like a partnership. This means that:

  • You’ll have responsibilities related to “the big picture”. You’ll have a far greater impact than in many larger corporate organizations. 
  • You need to take initiative. Both in the projects you manage, and regarding what you need to succeed in your role. If you need something – let us know. We’ll try and make it happen. 
  • You’ll work together with the company owners. But they’re not the ones managing you or the daily business – you and your colleagues will. 
  • To work in this environment requires open, straightforward communication and a proactive attitude. This is vital to successfully deliver our projects.

We spend a lot of our time working. And we all expect something different from work. Think about what you want, need or desire from your future workplace. We wanna make sure there’s a match from both sides.
