What awaits you

  • Your own desk at our awesome office in the centre of Eindhoven
  • Daily free lunch and Friday drinks

If you’re doubting to apply to a start-up/scale-up or a bigger more steady company, please don’t apply to this position. We are looking for people that thrive in a dynamic environment and are seeking opportunities in everything!
