Salaryfrom 3000 €


Date added10.10.2022

STRV is a software design and engineering team. We’ve earned the trust of industry leaders and bold dreamers the likes of ClassDojo, Barnes & Noble, Minted, Barry’s, MedMen, Autodesk, The Athletic and more.

Here since 2004, we believe in taking on challenges. In turn, we challenge ourselves and our partners, molding every idea into something exceptional.

Our vision is not a convoluted puzzle. It’s simple and honest: We want to do top work. Every design, every line of code, is something STRV proudly stands behind. And this is possible only thanks to our biggest asset — the team.

We are curious individuals that stay busy, and we like it that way. Transform a crazy idea into a product impossible to ignore? We're in. Provide guidance and structure while we're at it? That's what we do.

Fearlessly going all in is what STRV was built on. Our feet may be firmly on the ground today, but our restless resolve isn't going anywhere.
