Workplace & Culture

We are mostly working remotely for the time being, but we meet every day on our Slack Standup meeting and we collaborate with a suite of tools that make it pretty seamless. We work hard and are independent, motivated, and solution oriented.

We embrace creativity and knowledge exchange, and we encourage everyone in the company to participate and help shape our platform.

Our culture is fun, supportive, encouraging, motivating, and smart.

We do coffee, have our Fika, and Friday at 3PM is go time for popcorn, a Hiber tradition since Mattias and Michael founded the company. 

We also play (and create) a lot of games, needless to say.
