About the team and the job

Degordian is an always curious strategic-creative digital agency.

Our team consists of over a hundred curious and hardworking digital marketing enthusiasts. Degordian is proud of 5 Best Employer awards and over 50 industry awards and is considered as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in CEE according to Deloitte. We are currently working mostly from home, sometimes we come to the office, and we will continue like this while corona is still “in the air” and of course after, because now we got used to it. So, we are open-minded about candidates from different locations 🙂

Our Digital Production team currently has over 15 members and is constantly growing. UX/UI Designers, Front-end and Back-end Developers, and Project Managers work together to make better solutions and push boundaries. We are working on a variety of projects for different clients, renowned regional and international clients, and the job is always dynamic. Our digital production team is the fastest growing Degordian team (150% YoY) and we plan to continue like that. This person is willing to get other people’s insight into the projects they develop, share and gain knowledge through code reviews, mentor members of the development team, and help others in achieving their full potential. If you enjoy learning, experimenting with technologies, coming up with innovative ideas, and take pride in your fearless attitude when it comes to development – you’ll be the ideal person to help us solve our (De)Gordian knots! 🙂
