Creative Dock is a company builder. They create innovative projects for their clients from the ground up and launch them on the market. Among their “offspring” are more than 50 start-ups, which include Zonky, Mutumutu, Pointa, SingleCase, or HoppyGo.
Besides founding new start-ups, the company focuses on rebuilding processes and customer journeys in big corporations. They currently operate in 10 European countries employing roughly 450 people. The company develops new projects in several business sectors – they specialize in fintech, insurtech, eHealth, p2p sharing, and publishing among other things.
They believe in managing as much work as they can in-house as opposed to excessive outsourcing. Each project has its own team supported by in-house delivery teams (IT, UX, big data, blockchain, innovations, digital marketing, content, branding, and advertising). Thanks to that, they are able to remain in startup mode and execute the steps quickly without time-consuming processes.
They’re not fond of empty words but rather devote their energy to honest work. Their goal is to expand to other European countries, so they can offer their digital projects and scale the products fast across the continent.
They’re particular in choosing their candidates. That’s because it’s the employees who make the company what it is. They seek specialists who really want to make a difference, create, and try new things, not just sit and muse, but also stick to the task at hand. They value the courage to explore uncharted waters. Failure doesn’t scare them. They don’t make a fuss about it either – you should be ready to take risks which includes failing, learning, and trying again.
Every employee has to be the right fit for the team both in terms of their mindset and attitude towards life and work. That’s why they’ve implemented bootcamps, as they call it, where one can try working in Creative Dock for two days with all that it entails. You get the opportunity to participate in ongoing projects right away, try out specific tasks, even go for lunch with your potential new colleagues. If the chemistry is right, the doors to the company are open to you – you don’t need any other interviews.
Traveling and working abroad are no empty promises at Creative Dock. Anyone could get the opportunity to set out to one of the company’s foreign offices to gain new experience. The management will be happy to help them move and arrange the essentials.
Sport, health, and well-being are an important part of the culture at Creative Dock, with people frequently riding a bike or running to work. A few more things you should know? The atmosphere is rather informal, the work hours are flexible, and open communication is more than just a buzzword.
