We've already launched one app and are now ready to take the next step on our journey. We look forward to you joining us!

Goodies & Benefits

We're an entrepreneurial, passionate and friendly team excited about what we do and ready to help and support each other. And as a young company, there is a lot of room for our people to build and shape their roles — and the business itself.

Then we're more than happy for you and the team to decide on the work arrangements that best suit you, including flexitime and home office.
We also work closely with our partners, Mobiliar and Garaio REM, and benefit from their corporate and real estate knowhow. And talking of real estate, our office in Berne is in a very central location, just a few minutes' walk from the main station.
