We enjoy beautiful offices in a co-working space in Madrid, where we have access to all sort of conveniences: plenty of space for us, an auditorium, 2 meeting rooms equipped with nice tech, a kitchen where you can cook or store a few things, locks, security, and inspiring neighbors.

During Covid, we’ve prioritized remote work as a first option and some team members are enjoying it, so we’ll keep a balance moving forward. We like to meet at least once a week, but flexibility and work-life balance remain a priority.
