7 Reasons Why We Love Working in WolkAbout

And why you will too

Suppose you want to design the best company on Earth where you could flourish? What would it look like?

You might want to work in a “growth mindset” culture that empowers you to reach your maximum potential. Or you’re driven by the open environment that supports diversity and lets you shine in all your glory.

What if we told you that helping you feel and be at your best is what our culture is all about?

Here, at WolkAbout, we know that we’ll only achieve our mission if we live our culture. We strive to be the best destination for the industry’s top talent, creating an open environment where bright ideas are given a chance to shine, and everyone is eager to lend a helping hand.

Here are 7 reasons why you don’t want to miss the opportunity to join our team.

1. You Can Show Your True Colours

You don’t have to fit into a mould at WolkAbout, as there isn’t one. Feel free to be yourself, as that’s who we’re hiring.

We don’t just value differences; we invite them. Our diverse background and culture that spans a wide range of roles and industries enable us to deliver exceptional digital solutions to our global customers.

And we don’t stop there. If your dream is to make a career shift from, for example, being a QA Specialist to writing product specs as a Business Analyst – we support exploring new fields right under our own roof.

We’re different together, and that’s one of our main strengths.

2. You Can Spark Innovation

Innovation is our default mindset - a hard-wired desire to improve things. We’re not afraid of taking big bets or getting them wrong as they empower us to be better in our job. We all share a passion for learning and growing, so we continuously reimagine our product and practices to let you do what you love in new ways.

Excellence is a founding core value at WolkAbout. We’re committed to delivering our best to give you flexibility and autonomy to inspire great thinking and advance in your career. The wider the perspectives, the bigger the ideas.

So, got an idea? Go for it. Innovation doesn’t know hierarchy. We make sure everyone is heard, considered and respected, with enough trust and resources to bring ideas to life and make them stronger.

Growth here has no limits. With us, you can walk on a fast-paced career path where we offer professional development, a promotion, a pay rise, and bonus opportunities based on individual performance and value you bring. We’re committed to our employees and help them advance through regular evaluations. In this way, we also ensure fair and equal pay.

Here, you can start your adventure with the guidance and support of a mentor from day one. Of course, by nurturing a leader’s support, you are free to ask for help at any time, give and get feedback, set up goals and develop your skills.

4. You Can Gain a Wealth of Knowledge

Here at WolkAbout, we invest heavily in knowledge sharing, both externally and through internal initiatives. No matter how much you already know, there is always something you can learn or teach. You’ve got questions? We’ve got you covered. You know something that we don’t? Great, feel free to share it.

We also understand your need for professional growth and do our best to bring knowledge closer to you. We’ll help you find the resources you need to expand your knowledge on various topics, stay current in your field and continue to learn as your career progresses. Do you need training? Want to attend an online course or exploit the literature of your choice? No problem, you’ll get a growth budget you can spend according to your preferences.

Besides providing a budget for international conferences and other learning materials, we also organise internal “Ask a CEO” events and presentations to help everyone on the team understand each other’s work.

So why not leverage the knowledge and experience we offer to grow and move up the ladder?

Here in WolkAbout, people come first - and we truly mean it. Behind the technology, you’ll get to meet leaders and innovators, movers and shakers, brainiacs and creatives, and all the most diverse talents that will get you empowered 100%.

We run our business by our culture of warmth and belonging because it’s the only way for all of us to thrive. We believe that the best work is done when you care about your colleagues and clients.

From spending quality time playing games and enjoying delicious food to getting together for a company retreat once or twice a year and partying, we take team bonding very seriously. :) Come and see it for yourself!

When you thrive, we thrive. Our benefits package isn’t limited to the working hours you spend in the company. We focus on nurturing your physical, emotional, social and educational well-being because this is where we can really make a change.

For starters, we provide a private health package for each member of the team, all included in your pay. Plus, we offer a discounted FitPass membership and paid participation in competitive and charity-related sporting events, so you are free to enjoy various sports activities.

A one-hour daily break (included in the 8-hour workday) and 25 days of vacation will give you enough boost and freedom to unwind, and fully reset. At the end of the day, it’s our personal lives that come first, work second.

At WolkAbout, work-life balance is more than a recruiting buzz phrase. We put our family first and support employees in living fulfilled lives not just because it fosters productivity, but because it’s the right thing to do. We’re passionate about our work yet believers that we need to take time to provide for others. Whether you’re welcoming a new child, tying the knot, or caring for a family member, rest assured you’ll have paid time away when you need it the most.

We treat each of our colleagues like a trusted partner. Being aware of the load of responsibilities and craziness modern life brings, we let you manage your time quite flexibly. And no matter whether you’re most productive in the comfort of your home or driven by teamwork in the office space, we provide you with all the tools and support you need. You get to choose whether you want to work from home or an office as long as you do your tasks on time.

If you’re feeling distressed or unproductive, don’t despair. We’ve made sure that our offices feel like a second home - you can take some time to unwind on the comfy sofa in the chillout space or enjoy some energy booster - the kitchen is stocked with all the coffee you can drink, drinks, snacks, and fresh fruit.

If you are a game lover, we’ve got you covered. We’re also crazy about playing table football, darts, PS4 or board games. And, don’t get fooled by some of our colleagues’ poker faces - they slay those games! :)

Last but not least, enjoy our little but spacious green office with plenty of sunlight and various plants (yes, we’ve got plenty of them).

  • Be whoever you want to be.
  • Share ideas freely.
  • Grow, grow, and grow more (and not just professionally).
