What’s in it for you?


Agile is as agile does.

Working remote is a given right now, but we have some onboarding tools to make remote as inclusive as possible. You’ll be based in Aalst, working with the global team.

We’ll kick off with an in-house onboarding program, so you can familiarize yourself with the solution, our procedures, our mission, vision, team.


You’ll kick off with an attractive package deal. We give as we get, you get as you give.


We don a flat management atmosphere, infused with humor, and a shared sense of mutual responsibility. OTF is how we roll – ownership, team spirit and flexibility. (We don’t play well with scrumbags. 🙅🏻)

Ready to epic, child, sprint if and when you are!

Apply here and let us know if you agree with Plato? “He who is not a good servant will not be a good master.”
