Autonomy, Feedback and Collaboration are in our DNA

We encourage creative and autonomous work and rely on you being accountable for your work and time. Failing and experimenting are one step towards excelling. What matters to us is that you stay curious, proactive and execution-driven while collaborating with the team.

We are committed to Diversity and Inclusion

We’re aware of our unconscious biases and strive to prioritize hiring and nurturing a diverse and inclusive team. We believe in the magic and power behind teams that represent different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences – that is what will set us up for success!

Life is better when we’re having fun

If we’ll be spending most of the day together, let’s make it fun!
We enjoy creating memories together – we surf, we have team off-sites, we barbecue and we are constantly discussing the quirks of living on this planet.

Benefits & Perks

Work-Life Balance

We believe autonomy is key for us to do our best work. You’ll have a flexible schedule policy and hybrid work set-up for you to get the best out of your work and personal life.

Health

Your health is what allows you to be at the top of your game – we provide health insurance so that you’re always covered. We’ve got your back!

Stock Options

Your work is a reflection of Valispace’s future. Every team member has the opportunity to join the upside of a fast growing company and to benefit from its success.

Investing in you

Your personal and professional growth is what drives Valispace forward. We encourage continuous learning by offering a generous educational budget and work days for you to focus on your professional growth.

Team Events

We invest into making everyone feel connected as a team. You’ll experience team building activities, annual retreats, office team events and fun days during which we create fun memories together!

Our Values

Work Smart > Work Hard

Although a fast-paced startup requires many hours of dedicated work, our most extraordinary achievements are the ones where with limited resources, we achieve high impact:

Wherever you can, try to achieve 80% of the result with 20% of the effort (following the Pareto Principle).

Leverage existing Solutions

Standing on the shoulders of giants is the best way for a startup to succeed.

If they exist, we champion the re-use, adaptation and improvement of existing methods and tools over the invention of home-made “perfect” solutions.

Keep Exploring

We never stop being on the lookout for new and innovative solutions to today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

We know that experimenting takes time, so we make room for it in our daily work.

Collaborate and Share Knowledge

Share your knowledge, plans and problems with those around you. You can expect help and guidance from your team and you will provide it to others.

A win for the team is worth much more than any individual win.

Be Honest to Others and Yourself

Honesty is the only way to long-term success:
Be honest to those who matter, including to your team, your customers and yourself.

Practice Radical Candor to Give Feedback

Since we care for everyone on the team, we encourage giving and receiving feedback:
Praise in the open and criticize in a 1-on-1.
Feedback is embraced across all hierarchies and in all directions.

Challenge the Status Quo & Embrace Decisions

This is a fine line, but very important:
Critical thinking is necessary and desired, since it prevents us from running into the
wrong direction.
So raise your concerns and alternative solutions.
However, once a decision has been taken embrace it as the current strategy and give
your best to make it work.

More than Work

Valispace is more than a place where people interchange lifetime for salary:
We respect each other, welcome diversity and whenever we can, we accommodate
for people’s personal needs.
We work together as a team but also like to spend time together in non-work
settings.

Complexity on our Side > Complexity on User Side

Whenever making a trade between a mental burden on our users or us: choose us.

Start Small – Test – then Optimize

Always start with a Minimal Viable Product/Process (MVP) when making something
new.
Only the feedback from users, customers, etc. will be able to tell us if we are on the
right track.
Make it nice and better when we know it is a good idea.

Make Engineers Happy, the Money will Follow

Listen to our users and make them happy.
When there is a conflict of interest between making the buyers/stakeholders or the
users happy, choose the users.
Only a great product that helps people solve their problems will lead to a sustainable
business

When Necessary, get Your Hands Dirty

Roles and responsibilities ease our daily work.
However when the situation demands it, it is everyone’s responsibility to roll up their
sleeves and get things done.

Share your Decision Process

To take important decisions: gather relevant all opinions, take a decision and bear the
responsibility.
Then share the result and your rationale, so that even if others don’t agree they get
transparency.

Be a Mentor

Our team consists of human beings that are learning. They are our most valuable asset.
Guide them, share knowledge and experience, have an open ear and help them develop
personally and professionally.
