Some of our perks, but not limited to…in Amsterdam

We're located in the heart of Amsterdam, in Raamplein 1. Think... a converted school, tall ceilings and long corridors. Each open room has glass windows which make it easy enough to wave hello to your colleagues but enjoy the space to get work done!

If you move from abroad, we will support you with your relocation (e.g. 30% ruling, housing-search, relocation loan, flights, tax-return support in the first year).

We're a fun bunch who love spending time together whether it's Tennis on Tuesdays, 4 PM Pizza Fridays or more seriously, putting our heads together to solve 1000 piece puzzles.

We have cost-saving schemes for the bike and gym enthusiasts and if it's food you're after then a small daily cost for a healthy communal lunch or the late workers can choose dinner from the takeaway menu each evening. And we don't stop there ...join us for boat rides in the canals of Dam or our very own cinema room for movie nights!
