Stream has a casual social culture, our team is very diverse in age, nationality and we all have different backgrounds. Our team in Amsterdam is very focused, you will see us heads-down coding or drawing complex charts on whiteboards until we pop up to have a chat or play merciless games of ping-pong.

When it comes to software engineering our culture is oriented towards ownership and quality: our goal is to deliver stable software.


Our Amsterdam office is located in the TQ tech space in the heart of the city. It's a fantastic building with all the amenities you'd expect. There's a cafe, a shared lunch area and a sports room with table tennis and badminton.
