  • Great place to work: we are a family business with strong values & beliefs - a great, warm-hearted team is waiting for you
  • Relocation support if you are based outside of Switzerland. We know that moving can be a challenge in terms of housing & documentation – we will do our best to make it as smooth as possible
  • Great team: we are very selective – and only hire the best chess players, cooks or video gamers ;)
