What can you expect?

Things you can expect by joining the BB team.

Make a difference

We’re a small company. Each position that we hire is very autonomous. That means that we’re open to adapt to certain processes and ways of thinking. We want our team to get a say in how we do things, and feel a sense of ownership. You will be more than just a cog in a system. You will have the opportunity to build the system. We’re after independent, audacious thinkers.

Growth

You will have the opportunity to grow both on a personal and business level. You are arriving into a small digital agency that is ready to take the next step in it’s evolution, and you can be part of that growth.

Flexibility

You’ll have the freedom to work flexible hours and maintain a healthy work-life balance. We already operate in multiple time-zones and have been doing it for years. We do expect at least couple of hours each day when the whole team works together.

Remote work

We like to think about ourselves as remote-natives. One of the perks of our remote team is that we genuinely trust you to get your work done. You can work from anywhere you see fit. No strings attached. Just make sure you have a decent internet connection.

Vacations

We won’t say we have infinite vacation days. We’re still a business. We take a collective two week winter break, as it gets very quiet during holidays. You have additional 2 weeks for the rest of the year to spend as you see fit.

Culture

If you’re looking for an agency with a daily happy hour and a ping pong table, we’re probably not the place for you. Our team shares a work ethic that is focused on quality. We hire for openness, willingness to learn and a curious nature. If you like to work in teams that value great work over loud voices, get in touch.

The work we do, and the people we help.

Our team are passionate about solving sticky problems for healthcare, communications, media and infrastructure technology. You’ll get to challenge yourself and help established corporations and growing tech companies like: Deloitte, Otsuka, ShipBob, Sendlane, Crisp, Ternary, etc. Help us build products for the many, not the few.
BB Agency (Trading name of Sweet&Simple d.o.o.) celebrates our differences and provides equal employment opportunities to all team members and applicants. We’re an international agency with a global workforce, and open to talent from every culture and background. With human-centric design at the core of our principals, we depend on the varied perspectives and life experiences of our team to help us build products for the many, not the few.
