Why Netgen?

We nourish a comfortable, yet stimulating working environment with colleagues who are always there for each other. There is never a dull moment in our office. Plus, there are always coffee and tea, cookies, and fruit around to give you a kick when you need it.

Your future crewmates know what they are doing but are not afraid to ask if they get stuck either. Your questions and ideas will be listened to, respected, and answered.

You will have a chance to continuously improve your professional skills through professional education programs, internal workshops, and conferences where you will have an opportunity to mingle with the experienced experts in the field.

And we will also be bringing those experts to you. At the end of summer, we will take you to the coast where you will spend a week of learning & fun at our annual conference Web Summer Camp – the best team building of them all.

The rest of the time you will be working on interesting and diverse projects with interesting clients, from international bookstores to Salsa festivals.

We also encourage you to write blog posts about your experiences and share your knowledge and expertise.

We offer you flexible work hours and competitive wages. You can count on your hard work, effort, and improvement being appreciated and rewarded.

Why you?

You are all-together a well-organized person with the necessary technical knowledge. You fully grasp your clients' business needs and know how to coordinate their expectations with your team's daily workload. You understand that leading a team means appreciating their part of work and effort. Also, you are fluent in English and that is, given our international clients, a must.

Bonus points if you also like singing out loud, birthday cakes, and beer after work.

Send us an email at careers@netgen.io containing:

  • a short CV

 You may also give us a few reasons why you would like to work with us. :)

Working at Netgen

Competitive salary

We offer a competitive financial package that will continue to grow according to your level of expertise and experience.

Days off

You will get a day off every time you donate blood. Spend that day off whenever you want. You get additional days off according to the years spent with Netgen. 

Educations and certifications

We offer, encourage and support various internal and external education programs, certifications, and even foreign languages classes.

Flexi-work

We don’t mind when and where you work from, as long as the job is done. Most of our employees prefer to work from the office, though ;)

Hardware of your choice

Choose the IT equipment that fits you the best and that you are most confident working with - new laptop bag and headphones included.

Health and sports

Join as many sports programs as you’d like supported by the Multisport Benefits System. Also, Netgen covers your supplemental health insurance and physical exams.

Open source

We learn and grow from open source. This is how we like to give back to the community.

Personal development

We will help you create and complete your own personal development program - Level up.

Puzzle breaks

Use your lunch break to play a round of board games from our own, growing selection.

Sweet delights

We are serious about birthday cakes. Also, we are always stacked with cookies and candy bars to get you going.

Tailor-made onboarding

You will start your first days at Netgen following your own tailor-made onboarding program. 

Web Summer Camp

You will take part in our own web conference that we organize every summer on the Croatian coast since 2012.

Q&A

After we receive your application, we will contact you back as soon as possible. Our team will evaluate your application and decide whether you might be the one we are looking for. If you might be, we will get back to you with a short assignment to get a clearer understanding of your skills or invite you for a cup of coffee during an interview.

When you send us a job application, you can be sure that we will review it thoroughly and carefully and that we will get back to you, even if we believe that you might not be the best candidate. Usually, we either send our candidates an assignment related to the job position or we invite them for an interview. During an interview we will discuss your assignment approach, and we will most definitely talk about your previous experience and career aspirations.

We are quite methodical about the entire selection process, so when it comes to interviewing we like to talk for hours, if necessary :) We like to get to know you and we believe that it is important that you get to know us, too. That said, you will be talking to our co-founders and some of the colleagues that you will be working closely with.

Working at Netgen will give you a chance to work for various clients from different countries, considering our two offices in Zagreb and Zurich. Also, it is interesting to mention that the average tenure of our current employees is 6.8 years. We are quite sure that our frequent birthday parties and after work beers are to blame :) 

Generally, yes. However, we prefer for our new employees to start working at Netgen from our offices. We believe that is a much better way to go through your onboarding process from the office and meet the entire team.
