CULTURAL COMPETENCIES

Paladin has five core values that we’re looking for in team members:

  • Kaizen: We make positive changes on a regular basis
  • Spark: We leave a mark, providing a positive experience for everyone involved
  • Wholehearted: We love the work we do, and we commit to our work

  • Coaching and plenty of opportunities for personal development
  • Competitive salary, a pension plan and other benefits
  • Remote work possibilities & flexible hours
  • Relocation support

We work in autonomous development teams. This ensures tight communications, a real sense of ownership and truly agile development.

In our weekly show & tell meetings, every team shares their progress and all aspects of the company can be discussed. We believe in transparency and autonomy, and this creates a high degree of freedom and responsibility.

Our take on the post-Covid work situation

We value our team spirit, a healthy work life balance and company culture. This is why we adopted a hybrid structure that allows us to work from home and in the studio. This is why we would like you to be able to come into the studio every once in a while. We will offer support during the relocation proces.

If you prefer to work remote, we are open to  finding a way to make that work. However, we prefer candidates to be roughly in the same time zone to ensure in sync work routines with the rest of the team.
