What do we have to offer

  • The office is in a new development right in the center of Pärnu, providing a sub 15min commute and proximity to all the stores and restaurants.
  • Adjustable desks – stand, sit, squat, or hang from the ceiling!
  • Powerful desktop machines to work on – the PC waits for you, not the other way around.
  • 1Gbit/s internet speed in the office, typically 300Mb/s at home.
  • We are crazy about taking time off with new and old video games, a day at the spa, sauna, or the beach (yes, Pärnu has a kickass beach!). A rested developer is a happy developer!
  • The team is phenomenal – nearly 50 people who are amazing to each other.
  • The living costs in Pärnu are extra low. Even the most expensive apartments in the center have their rent of around 400-500€ per month. 
  • The living environment is probably one of the best in the region. Check it out yourself: https://youtu.be/V9FkzRMihUk
