All of this in a region where kids still play in the nature and drive to school by bike.

You love everything about us but you don’t want to live in Germany? No problem, lots of our developers are living across the border in Strasbourg, France, and get here easily by train or car. Strasbourg is one of the biggest cities in France with 500.000 citizens.
