Get to know us

Feeling good at work, being able to express yourself and being efficient all go hand in hand in an expert organization like ours. We believe in the happiness of people and that employees are the key resource of our company. It is everyone's opportunity and privilege to care for each other.

We have a cozy office with a no-shoes policy and an office dog to make sure you remember to keep breaks and smile. At Valuemotive everyone can truly come as they are and feel safe being themselves. Everyone has the opportunity to plan and organize some fun freetime activity for the team and the company supports these activities.

We believe in low hierarchy. Everyone has the opportunity to influence their own work and the company matters. We hold Weekly Meetings to enhance our internal communication and share updates on our daily life. The goal is to share your feelings from that work week and wind down for the weekend.


Our Values


We are an open book. We share all needed information related to work, processes or objectives. We get rid of outdated and wrong information. We respect confidentiality. We share figures, assumptions, risks and outcomes. We share our ideas, work, thoughts and feelings.


We communicate everyday success and possibilities as fast as the bad news, blockers, problems and unexpected outcomes. We communicate clearly in receiver frequency. Listen. Respect. Put the cat to the table. We Communicate. Always.


We trust in the best intentions from our customers and colleagues, even when we disagree with them. We trust that the community supports everyone both in good and bad times in life. We trust that everyone can be themselves at work. We trust that no one is left alone.


We love to learn. We work to improve the code and practical task execution as much as the processes and ways of working under which the tasks are being done. We enhance the customer experience by constantly developing understanding of their business. We never stop learning.

Say hello to the Valuemotivians
