  • PHP/Symfony
  • Go microservices

You will become a key person on the development team and your work and thoughts will be key both for our builds as well as the future direction of the project.

  • Flexible working hours with a very high level of autonomy. We value a good work-life balance.
  • Spacious headquarters in the heart of Copenhagen - the current team is 50/50 remote and on-site.
  • Working with a team of smart, creative, fun, and highly motivated people.
