Above all, we offer opportunities to grow and develop

When the environment supports and encourages people in the right way, growth is inevitable.

As a Sofokusian, you can challenge yourself, learn new things and expand your comfort zone as much as you want. You’ll always be in a safe environment and get all the support you need from your skilled and supportive colleagues. We want to find meaningful and motivating projects for everyone, and we encourage you to share your learnings with your colleagues. To help us learn as an organisation, we arrange monthly developer workshops, Sofokus Academy events and “ES breakfasts” (yep, as in the Euro Shopper energy drink) to showcase what has been learned from our projects.

Everyone in our team can contribute to shaping the future of Sofokus.

We believe that we can only thrive in the new normal with transparency, the lowest possible hierarchy and the ability to adapt quickly. That’s why we want to involve our whole team in decision-making and encourage everyone to share their wildest development ideas. Sofokus does not have a traditional executive team at all, instead we organise monthly “The Expendables” meetings open to all. We guarantee that your opportunities to give feedback won’t be limited to one annual satisfaction survey that gets buried at the bottom of the drawer, instead we constantly seek feedback and ideas for improvement, which we have used to create many of the innovations that drive us forward. Some of the latest initiatives we’ve decided on together include a company-wide bonus programme, joint technology workshops for developers, and the opportunity to book a career coaching session with our Chief Happiness Officer.

10 characteristics of our culture

  1. Continuous learning: ‘When we stop learning, we stop being.’ Failures are also excellent learning opportunities.
  2. Transparency: everyone can contribute to decison-making (e.g. The Expendables) and give and receive valuable feedback.
  3. People first: although we take our work seriously, we certainly take everyday life at Sofokus lightly. We love to see each other, organise lots of activities together and have fun together also outside of work.
  4. We are not machines: we all take care of each other’s work-life balance.
  5. Courage: We require ourselves to have the courage to experiment and learn. We may challenge you, but only to help you achieve even greater things.
  6. We don’t stop moving forward: we are constantly exploring new trends, technologies and business opportunities.
  7. Accountability: we want to be worthy of our customers’ trust, and it’s a matter of pride for us to deliver our work as agreed.
  8. Hunger for growth: to grow as people and professionals, we need a healthy dose of hunger for it.
  9. Hybrid: We have been working remotely for years before the new normal. You won’t be left out, even if you prefer your home office.
  10. Creating value: no matter how big or small the project, we always want to create real business value for our clients.
