This position is a full-time one, based in our Barcelona office. Possession of a valid work-permit for Spain is a must.
In case of freelance, we require a minimum availability of 20 hours per week, remote work accepted but presence at our Barcelona office required (ideally one day per week).
Using a football analogy, we are more in line with the team ethics of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid than that of Florentino Perez's Real Madrid. In a few words: No Galacticos here, the Star is the Team.
That team is a mix of youth and experience. It is diverse (7 different nationalities at the moment) and its members are hungry to learn, grow and share. We champion a stimulating environment where autonomy, ownership, initiative and exchange are valued and encouraged. Micro-management is not our idea of how a team should work.
Working hard and having fun in the process: this is how we want to live our adventure together.
