Remote policy

Notre politique de télétravail est flexible en fonction des équipes et des périodes de l'année. Nous souhaitons permettre à nos collaborateurs de travailler dans l'environnement de travail qui leur convient le mieux tout en assurant des moments de rencontres en personne et d'échanges informels qui sont le terreau de notre innovation.

"Mon manager est assez flexible, nous nous adaptons en fonction de la charge de travail et toute l'équipe se retrouve au moins une fois par semaine au bureau"

Bureau de Paris

Situé à Iéna, à deux pas du palais de Tokyo, les bureaux accueillent actuellement environ 70 collaborateurs dans un immeuble indépendant, entièrement réaménagé et climatisé. Les espaces sont organisés en open spaces, salles de réunion et box individuels. L'immeuble dispose également d'une grande cuisine, d'une salle de sport équipée de douches, d'une salle de détente, d'un parking à vélo ainsi que d'un patio arboré.

Entre la Tour Eiffel et les Champs Elysées, Chaillot est un quartier animé, proposant une grande variété de restaurants, snacks et bars.
