About the team
We are a very dynamic and diverse mix of research scientists and engineers coming from nearly all continents: we cover Europe, Asia and South America—and we love having food from such places and beyond! We have family people, single people, tea lovers but coffee haters (and vice-versa), bikers/footballers/beach-volleyballers and, uh, virtual athletes.
Before the pandemic, we worked most of the time from our office in the heart of Shoreditch in London. We are open to candidates working fully remotely from UK (or alternatively from Berlin or Budapest) although we’re looking forward to a time when we can start to get together a day or two per week as we do love the prospect of getting together for architecture, sprint planning and retrospectives.
