Remote First

Our environment is designed to foster innovation and enable collaboration, working from one of our Tech Hubs in South Africa, Kenya or Portugal. We operate a remote first working approach where working remotely is our default way of working. You have flexibility where to work from, as long as you have access to a reliable connection and are set up to work remotely.

We have co-working spaces available in Cape Town and Nairobi for collaboration and connection and for the use of those who value and want to work out of an office. We provide access to co-working spaces on a needs basis for collaboration and connection for all our engineers and employees working from our Porto hub.
