*During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still interviewing and hiring, but all conversations will obviously be via video call! For now, StuDocu adopted a flexible remote-first policy, but we still require our 45+ employees to be located in or near Amsterdam in the Netherlands (we are supporting the relocation process). We encourage our employees to visit the office once every other week to build relationships and socialize while abiding by the safety rules. When it's safe again, you will be able to take full advantage of our bright office in the center of Amsterdam with canals, restaurants, and cafes right around the corner. Every day we have lunch together (prepared by our chef and it’s oh, so good) and once a week we’ll crack open a few beers, chill in the garden, or grab our boat for a trip on the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. And let's not forget about the occasional pub quizzes, board game nights, and bbq cook-offs!
