Meet our cool colleagues

"Somehow, I got a taste for programming and developing. I began to learn SAS and Python and Excel in order to develop and maintain local, smaller solutions which were used by the advisors"


Meet Dmitriy

"Doing night shifts from home really has a positive impact on my life. It’s not just the hours I save – my brain simply works better, and I have extra energy to spend time with my teenagers or go for a walk"

Meet Lisa

" Ever since my first days, I have always had lots of flexibility. I don’t necessarily need to be in the office to work, and if the wind is good, I can have a short day and work more later on instead"

Meet Amund

"Construction financing is a really complex area, which actually used to make me nervous in the past..."
