More about us

We work agile in two weeks sprints (+ retrospective :).
 
We’re a product-centric company - we all get to touch different aspects of the product, so there's a good selection of different types of tasks.
 
Also, to spice things up, we have a ninja week once in a while, where the team can build awesome things that aren't in the day-to-day backlog. This is what we did in our last ninja.
 
We're a start-up - but keep sane hours and make sure never to skip the Thursday happy hour. We love to have jam sessions! One & Two.
 
Location Location Location – We’re based near Sderot Yehudit in Tel Aviv, a leisurely 5 minute walk from Hashalom train station so it’s easy for e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e.
