    What it's like to work here

    We're good at remote: We are focused on intently creating an exceptional remote working culture for our distributed workforce. Although we have office spaces in Cape Town and Amsterdam, we empower and encourage our team to work remotely. This provides the advantage of flexibility and mobility based on what is most suitable for their lifestyle. 

    • We love to do fun stuff together. We are focused on building a connected tribe and a sense of belonging. We value unique and diverse approaches and ensure we create opportunities to share and learn from each other. We have regular online events, show and tells and a book club as well as regional and annual off-site events. 
    • We're dedicated to authenticity: We treat people as people, caring personally and speaking openly. We foster low-ego behaviour - we own our mistakes as well as our victories. We're never about blame. We're always about honesty, learning and continuous improvement. We ensure lots of transparency and visibility. From OKRs and strategy to analytics and company performance numbers, it's all available for you to see and understand.
    • We're passionate about learning and levelling up: Everyone at OfferZen strives for a growth mindset. We read books, listen to podcasts, share expertise obsessively, then take on hard challenges with smart guidance and support. When things go wrong, we look for the learning and how to improve.
    • We’re all about balance: We believe that maintaining a healthy balance between home and work is the key to feeling happier and more productive. This is where remote work and flexibility come in. We also offer 20 days of leave a year which are available to use from the time you start.
