What you get:
  • Flexible working hours. We value personal cooperation. However, each person’s needs and circumstances are unique. As a result, working hours are as flexible as possible.
  • 30 days of vacation. With us, everyone gets the same amount of time to rest. And before the new year starts we close our studio between the days.
  • CO2 neutral. We compensate the work of every single person. Starting with the commute to work. Plus green energy for our equipment and servers and bikes for our team.
  • Off Site. We regularly go on field trips with the entire team. In 2023, we were on the South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. One of the largest and most important gatherings for digital creatives.
  • Sushi Friday. We value having lunch together. Sushi Friday is almost as old as DUMBO. To celebrate, Friday is on us! Bon appétit.

Sounds good? We're so excited to hear from you!

We can't wait to meet you soon!

The DUMBO team.
