How we work (remote)

We are a remote-first team. We work both synchronously (overlapping work times) as async (no overlapping work times). Generally speaking, most of the time is synchronous so you can communicate real-time.

We don’t cut on software costs which means you will have all the tools available that you need to do your work (Slack, automation software, other subscriptions).

We work with sprints of two weeks in which we finish our tickets (deliverables). Tickets are set every beginning of the sprint and estimated. We keep each other in check to whether we challenge ourselves hard enough and at the same time be realistic. 

We learn a bit more everyday on how to balance the right level of challenge and what’s realistic. That way we improve quickly as a team and as professionals.
