Shape is an open and flexible working environment. We strive to ensure that you never have that disappointing Sunday night feeling when Monday is looming — everyone should look forward to coming to work and love what they do for a living. We are highly protective of our culture and we would rather be understaffed than risk hiring the wrong person. But if you do join our team, you will notice that there are several reasons why this is not like most other jobs.

About Shape

Our office is located in a lovely old warehouse on Islands Brygge, where we host social events, keynotes, Fifa tournaments, morning runs (and swims), friday bars, board game nights, family LEGO days and much more.

We are organized with a very flat hierarchy without unnecessary project managers, but with team leads who also have technical backgrounds. Our team is very international and so far includes people from 14 different countries. Our company language is English.

A couple of times each year we press pause on our daily projects and retrieve to a remote location. We get together for socialising and hacking on side projects - we call this Shape Weekend. It is a lot of fun.
