A strong technical bent is a must, as is curiosity, creativity and a desire to innovate. Fluency or native-level proficiency in Italian, Spanish or French is highly desirable.

They’re fun and ambitious, so being in that environment is the best perk. But they’re all about substance over style, so you won’t find any ping pong tables or car-shaped coffee tables.
However, there are some great role models in the business – famous backers, ex-consultants, start-up veterans and marketing experts who you’ll be dealing with directly. As they’re a small team, you’ll be working with the CEO and the rest of the management team from day one, and there are constant opportunities to take on more responsibility and progress within the company.
