Our team

Hire someone you would like to be friends with and everything will be fine. Our team is very talented and professional, but as important as that, it's the fact that we all care about being in a good environment. We welcome personal experiences, stories and beliefs while we leave our ego outside the door.

We provide connections everywhere, hence nothing more natural than having a special team with people from Denmark, Italy, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, Turkey, United States and so on. It's truly hard to speak about ourselves, but we've tried our best, take a look:
