How to Join the Dev Team

Reach out to us and let’s chat about your tech stack and our code.

We will invite you to the office to have a coffee together and get to know each other.

We will then assign you a task and invite you to join us for the whole day to work side-by-side with our developers.

We’ll both see if there is a cultural and technical fit. If so, it’s a match!
