We are united by common values and ways of working, which we revisit as a team on an annual basis, and all staff participate in creating and owning together. 

While we work remotely a lot of the time, our UK office is currently based in Central London, with great transport links and lots to do in the area. We have Social and Culture Committee, which organises social and well-being activites for the team such as yoga classes, holiday celebrations, drinks and more.
