Working at Spindle

If you look around the office, you’ll notice we do things a bit different around here:

  • We organize ourselves using a system called Holacracy. We believe every colleague is able to contribute to the organization rather than relying on a traditional hierarchy. Having no managers comes with extra responsibility to take ownership of your work and set priorities that help to further the organization.
  • We work with a “build, measure, learn” mentality and open mindset. We recognize that not everything you do is going to work right away. We praise experimentation and reward trying something new, even if the lesson is to not try it again. We have an open and transparent salary system. Every colleague is placed in the pathway and a level best fitting their education and experience. We encourage growth and have clear guidelines and expectations for doing so.
  • We are a diverse and inclusive team of international coworkers. We value the differences that each person brings to the table and think that it's those differences that strengthen our organization.

What we offer

  • A relaxed and welcoming culture with celebrations, events, and trips
  • A competitive salary and good pension benefits
  • An annual study budget and study days for personal and professional growth
  • A 'Work-from-home package' with all the things you need if you want to work from home (chair, monitor, sit/standing desk, extra screen etc).
  • Other benefits that contribute to your health, well-being, and work/life balance
