Why you’ll love working with us
If technology is our vehicle for progress, people are the superfuel that drives us forward. They are the asset we value the most. Knowledge can be shared. Skills can be coached and developed. But talent, vision and a can-do attitude are rare things that really are special.
We love to see people fulfill their potential. To help DECODE their life ambitions and pursue their goals each and every day. That’s why we are committed to providing the fun, professional and supportive working atmosphere that talented individuals need to thrive.
Genuine work-life balance. Let the statistic speak for itself: in ’23 we had an average of 1.1 hours of overtime per month. Your work shouldn’t be your life.
Clearly defined roles
From what are & aren’t your responsibilities to compensation for each seniority level. You won’t be given any tasks that fall outside of your job description. Unless you want them.
No context switching
When it comes to projects, we are monogamous. One project at a time is what we like.
Modern tech stack
This is not a place where you’ll ask yourself “Am I ever going to use this again?”. Everything you learn here will help you get to the next level.
A ‘buddy’ for new starters
Escape the awkward silence – there is a dedicated Luigi to your Mario and he will take you to lunch on your first day.
Every 3 months you’ll have an all-about-you talk with your team-lead. This is the time to talk about your future, satisfaction and earnings.
You’ll have full support along the way by someone more experienced than you.
You’re all fed up with your everyday tasks and would love to see why everybody is talking about Flutter? Let’s sit down and see how to make it possible.
Tech talks and Demo days
We have regular, dedicated meetings to share insights into the latest features and advancements we’re working on.
Highly competitive pay
Pay-checks are reviewed/modified every 3 months to keep up (and above) the market.
It’s called “the most wonderful time of the year” for a reason.
Or the bounty hunter award = you’ll get EUR 1,000 for every new engineer that’s hired by your referral.
“Ride the way” bonus
Because loyalty is royalty.
Just like your pay grows with time, so does the number of your vacation days, depending on your levels of seniority and responsibility.
From 74 to 165 remote days yearly, depending on your seniority level. Or you can go full remote.
Flexible working hours
The 5AM club is a little extreme for us. On the days we come to the office, it’s between 7 and 10 AM.
Earn extra vacation
There are several ways you can make your vacation days fund grow. Writing a blog is just one of them, but it’s our favourite.
Free parking spot
You won’t lose any time looking for parking. We got you covered.
General medical examination
Prevention is the best way to stay healthy. That’s why once a year you can go to a private clinic for a thorough health check up. It never hurts to be safe.
Additional health payments can add up. With extra health insurance they won’t.
100% paid sick leave
If something happens to you or your kid, we make sure you have one less thing to worry about. Nobody should be punished for being sick.
Because we like to hit the gym, but we also like swimming, occasional weekend tennis matches, a little yoga…
Parents’ extra days off
Somebody has to take the “first day of school” photo, and we believe it should be you. It goes on top of 1 extra day you already have because you’re a parent.
Santa’s gift voucher
Kids Christmas gift voucher also known as EUR 80 per kid for your yearly Santa duties.
Catch-ups, hackathons, talks and pizza
We regularly host events and occasions for all of our DECODErs to get together, share experiences, and build on their knowledge and skills as a community. Sometimes, we like a bit of healthy competition too.
Here are some of the activities we regularly hold for the DECODE team…
Every second Friday, we get together to discuss the progress we’ve made as a team, and the projects and opportunities that lie ahead.
On Fridays without an All Hands meeting, we have a Demo Day instead where our developers showcase their work to the rest of the team.
Our talented team of techies always have new things to discuss in software and beyond. We find a comfy seat in the lounge, discuss all things dev, and enjoy some free pizza.
This is one of our most loved events. At least once a year, every DECODEr has two days to devote to their own creative project, with some prizes up for grabs.
Our bi-annual team building events are a great opportunity for all of DECODE to get together, hang out, and have some fun…with a little bit of adventure thrown in.

Want to know more?
That’s great. We love your enthusiasm.
Of course! We would be more than happy to consider your application again, particularly if you come back to us with new knowledge or skills.
Search and apply for a job on our Careers page. Follow us on social media too – we’re on LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram – where we will keep you up to date on open positions at DECODE.
We collect applications through Bamboo.hr. If you have your CV/resume ready, it should take you a few minutes to complete our online application. Bear in mind that the more relevant information we get from you, the more we will be able to understand if you are the right candidate.
It is not required but it’s certainly an advantage. We really appreciate when a candidate takes the time to show us his or her motivation.
Certainly! We need people on our team who can bring in great projects and even better people. Show us what you can do and we’ll see if you’d fit right in.
At the moment, we don’t offer internships but any updates on that will go on our career page, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
Step 1: Online Application
All our open positions are listed on our website. To apply, complete the online application through Bamboo. When you send your application you will receive a thank you email to confirm it’s reached us. Once your application arrives, our team will review your qualifications. If we feel that your skills and experience meet our requirements, we will contact you for an interview. We’ll also let you know if you haven’t been successful too.
Step 2: First interview with a Hiring Lead and People Operation Team Lead
We prefer people to come to the office for an interview but it is possible to arrange a video interview as well. The first interview will cover your education and experience, and we’ll be assessing your knowledge and motivation. It will take about an hour, with plenty of time to ask us everything you want to know.
Step 3. Second interview with a Hiring Lead, People Operations Team Lead and COO
Again, we prefer in-person interviews but could do video if necessary. This interview is for our COO to get to know you better and it’s more like a relaxed talk where we discuss salary, potential start dates, benefits and remote working. It’s the last step before we decide to hire you.
Step 4. Offer
If we decide you’re the best candidate for the position, we will send you an offer letter.
Step 5: Onboarding at DECODE
Congratulations and welcome to DECODE! We’ll start our onboarding process so you can begin to feel part of the team. We have a dedicated team of people who will help you with your first days at DECODE.
Yes, we are trying to take part as much as we can. We’ve done everything from career speed dating to workshops for students. As our tech and non-tech teams grow we will have more capacity to make this a more integral part of our business.
