Company culture

You will join a company filled with smart, humble and hard-working people. With founders who deeply trust their employees and where the employees trust and believe in their founders even more. A startup where people put the team first, take ownership and truly understand what they are working for day by day. You will join a group of people from all around the world who share their experiences and contribute in their areas of expertise and learn from each other. You will join a passionate team that shares the same values and vision, and take part in a circle of friends that not only work hard but also laugh together and support one another. With that said, it is absolutely crucial to find people who share this with us and who deeply identify themselves with the values of a Chocorian. Here at Choco, we like to use the space shuttle as a metaphor for our engineering work. Now, you will join and help us bring the shuttle to the moon. For that, we need resolute people to build and enhance the engine that is the foundation of the whole system. That means that the tiniest mistake can cost us the mission. In terms of your work, that means, you will always be candid and thorough when reviewing the code of your peers or do peer programming. You will always be driven by quality, add tests and leave the code better than when you found it. 

You will always be curious and have a chance to expand your knowledge, but especially share your knowledge with your colleagues and with the community to encourage future rocket builders to start building their own shuttles. That said, we have a set of documented values in the form of a Manifesto to help us grow, stay challenged and help ourselves and the business succeed. And we are looking forward to you joining us on this adventure.
