You’ll ❤️ Brno

Note: The core team is located in Brno. However, this position is open for Prague as well.

The Czech Republic is among the top 10 safest countries on Earth. And, while the country is known for Prague, its beautiful capital, Brno really is a perfect place to live. It provides many opportunities without being overwhelmingly busy. Size matters. It’s big enough to offer all kinds of services, but small enough so that they’re within walking or biking distance. That’s why three of our team members relocated from Prague, two came from Hradec Králové, and one even left Brazil behind just to work with us here. At the end of the year, two more designers will join us from Amsterdam. So then, what's so great about Brno?

  • Hundreds of historical sights
  • Incredibly affordable cost of living
  • Many public parks, open day and night
  • Unique pubs and wine bars
  • Lots of great cafés, bistros, and restaurants
  • Unexpected cuisine and nightlife
  • Cheap, reliable, and fast public transport
  • A vibrant university city with about 90,000 students
  • Functionalist architecture
  • Cultural atmosphere with music, performances and festivals
  • A center of innovation supported by the government
