Our values

Think independently

Our thinking is not constrained by anything. To change the world, we have to challenge assumptions about what is (and isn’t) possible. Dare to think differently, but don’t reinvent the wheel.

Be bold

We make the impossible possible. We are willing to do what it takes. We embrace big ideas.

Deliver the change

Our work creates a dent in the universe. We deliver meaningful value to our users and the world. We commit to results. We need to cooperate to succeed.

Put people first

Our work is focused on improving the lives of as many people as possible. We always treat anyone openly and with respect. We support each other in the best way we can.

Take responsibility

We are collectively responsible towards our environment. We own our decisions. We acknowledge our mistakes and shortcomings and learn from them. We only succeed if we all play our part.

Offices

Find our bright and airy HQ at Brainport, Europe’s innovative heart. As well as unlimited views of our solar electric car, you’ll enjoy modern work spaces, comfy meeting rooms, focus nooks and creative spaces. Plus, good coffee and fresh fruit. What more does the active mind need?
