We don't believe in yearly performance reviews, but in constant feedback. We don't think that people are assets, but that they are unique talents and we believe in all-round personal development instead of traditionally climbing the corporate ladder.

You’ll be helping Jexia to bring our company, colleagues and culture to the next level as we’re scaling up.

  • We don’t climb the corporate ladder, but would like to have a development plan in place for our colleagues. How? We love to hear your ideas.


How does a day look like?

Tuesday morning, 9 a.m. You have a meeting with the Development team lead to talk about new positions for a back end developer and a QA lead.

At the end of the day, you join the monthly company meeting where everyone gets an update about company topics and new projects. You give a short presentation about the new HR information system that you just implemented and close the day with a drink with your colleagues.
