You might have seen dozens of job offers already. All similar? Probably. We believe that it’s not only the work that needs to be done that is important but the environment in which you work is what makes a difference.

At 7Graus we believe in a flat network organization and culture of responsibility and ownership and we do live it, everyday. We keep exploring and experimenting with new ways of working having in mind that the ultimate goal is not a framework or a tool that we apply but our mission and a healthy culture. Culture that ultimately helps us create an organizational system that is able to self-regulate and adapt to the changing world.
We try to intentionally create an organization with no toxicity or politics, low rotation of passionate people, where everyone does meaningful work and is happy to collaborate with us for years.
