Our culture & values

Our culture and values are what define us. That's why we've set the following 4 cornerstones as a basis for our daily work and interaction with each other.

  • We value freedom in our daily work so that fun and creativity can unfold. We believe that the best results come from creativity and the freedom to act.
  • Where freedom exists, trust and responsibility also need to be present. Excessive control only serves to restrict freedom, which is why it is our goal to give our employees maximum trust and responsibility.
  • We cultivate honest and open interaction with each other. Everyone has a right to be heard and only through our honest actions and communication can trust be created and maintained.
  • We see private life as a source of strength which contributes to high performance at work. Therefore we advocate a healthy work-life balance.

Our working principles

We love agile methods which is why they form the basis of everything we do. At the heart of these methods is a collaborative, interdisciplinary and direct exchange with each other on an equal footing. Important decisions are discussed with the whole team, which in our experience does not contradict the clear responsibilities we have as individuals. In addition, we use the following principles as a guide:

Does it make our site faster or slower? Our mission is to create a good user experience by ensuring the fastest load times. Whether 3G or LTE. We provide you with the best offer on your mobile phone, tablet or computer.

Unit and integration tests are an important part of our codebase to ensure a high quality of software. 99 % of our code is supported by tests.

We do not speculate and make decisions based on numbers.

We organise our work according to the Kanban method.

We move towards our objectives in small, fast steps. This helps us to remain focused and keep both the end goal and our users in mind.

As a small team, we depend on solutions that can be automated in the long term.

Best practices and their application to our products and methods generate valuable ideas.

We set ourselves goals according to the OKR principle.

Everyone in the team is jointly responsible for the quality of our products. Everyone can play an active role in the design of our products.

Start with the smallest possible meaningful product in order to get (user) feedback that we can use for possible future iterations.
