Liffery Careers

Who is Liffery and who are we looking for

Liffery is a collaborative research and wish-list tool for people and businesses.

At Liffery we have a keen interest to run a sustainable business from both, a social and environmental perspective and firmly believe that today's world of endless push-advertising and mindless consumerism should be coming to an end.

We're a remote team with fully flexible day time working hours, we have a product and a clear vision for what we want to achieve, coupled with a well structured product development system. We believe in company structures but without too much bureaucratic hierarchy, and with the right team we wish to strive for autonomy as much as possible. So while we definitely know how to work hard, we value time to wind down and restore energy just as much!

Lastly, we're new. We believe that what we have can change the way the world of consumers think - online and offline. So, we are looking for someone who we feel believes what we believe... is passionate about our company values and as a developer, passionate about engineering! For the right person, we are willing to offer, more than a salary. Come join us and make your mark!
