Working Environment

  • Currently, London staff members are working remotely. This will continue until further notice and will be reevaluated as conditions allow.
  • This position requires working independently as well as coordinating with teams inside and outside of the UK (continental Europe and the US).
  • As a globally distributed organization, we embraced remote work long before it was established as the mainstream. Consequently, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Skype are our everyday tools.
  • You are expected to contribute an average of 40 hours per week, but time can be managed flexibly – exceeding the quota is the key consideration.
  • Before COVID-19, our nearshore teams visited the UK on a regular basis. We hope those days will return soon, and we hope the person filling this role will be able to visit our HQ in New York and delivery offices across Eastern Europe.
