  • We work in English at Gigs. German language skills are also desirable for this role.

  • 21 paid vacation days per year (PTO).
  • Generous stock options: We want everybody to be a true owner in Gigs (tax-free until exercised).

  • Get your perfect setup: Mac, Mechanical Keyboard, Plugins, IDE. We are flexible and cover whatever you need to do the best work of your life.
  • A workplace built for remote-first work: We are building Gigs as a remote-friendly company, but we also believe in the magic of face-to-face interaction. That means we’re building ways to get you out of your home office from time to time:
    • Gigs Pads: Our collection of beautiful homes around the world, for when you need a work-cation getaway.
