From its office in Milan, Bending Spoons creates and markets mobile apps with millions of users all over the world, and has the ambitious goal of becoming the #1 mobile developer globally by assembling a diversified, top-quality portfolio of products.

With a team of 32 and an average age of 28, Spooners spend their days developing technologies and apps that meet strict quality criteria, churning numbers to better understand users and marketing channels, and letting off some steam in all-consuming fussball matches.

We talked with one of the co-founders, Luca Ferrari, to have backstage information on what makes Bending Spoons a place employees enjoy and care about. With a culture based on transparency and ownership, it all starts with finding the right people, a pursuit in which the company invests disproportionately for its size.

Talent is essential to make it through the selection process, but it’s eagerness to learn and passion that will give you a shot at joining this fast-growing company trying to transform how people work based on a few simple principles: excellence should be pursued at all costs, trust and freedom should be the default, and workplaces that are friendly and tribe-like are more fun than cold and professional ones.

With top-of-the-market salaries and amazing perks, Bending Spoons invests first and foremost into its team. From health insurance to catered lunches, everything is taken care of so that Spooners can just focus on doing their best. In Luca’s words, “At Bending Spoons you’re expected to make a difference, and your opinions and ideas truly matter”. This deeply-ingrained independence seems to be one of the elements making Bending Spoons a success story that stands out.

The company’s flat hierarchy allows every Spooner to impact the business from day one, and promotes initiative, periodically rewarded with share-options. Join the team that aims at conquering the app stores, they’re hiring.

Flixbus is one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe. In only 3 years its international team grew up to 1,000 employees, generating around 5,000 new jobs in the local SME industry of its key market.

However, by our own experience, we know that Flixbus hasn’t lost an inch of the start-up attitude that made it grow so fast.

If you want to join the Flixbus family you have to set your attitude into start-up mode: an entrepreneurial spirit, full of ambition, enthusiasm and in particular a non-formal dress code (you can wear whatever you want!). People on average are straight-talkers and the bright side of their growth and attitude is that you find relatively young people in very high-profile positions.

If you don’t like straight talkers, or if you feel uncomfortable dealing with work you’re unprepared for, this is probably not the right place for you. If you’re not willing to take responsibility for your work from day 1 this is probably not the company for you. In case you don’t match the abovementioned, and you want to meet smart and friendly people, fun at work and beyond (they organize team events regularly) this is the right place for you.

It is absolutely one of the best companies to work for, thanks to the spirit in which they want to revolutionize the way in which people travel after the deregulation of the market.
