What’s in for you?
Besides a competitive package, endless opportunities to grow and this
amazing welcome pack? We’ve always championed flexible working to
support Emakinians in achieving work-life balance. We love it when
people play around with the latest tech, so everyone gets access to the
entire Adobe software suite. We also help staff to lease super-cool
Ahooga folding e-bikes and keep your vitamin C levels up with a constant
supply of fresh fruit.
Cake every day
To work at Emakina, you have to be really smart and talented – but also a
good human being. We care deeply about our work but also for each
other. Birthdays are a big deal (and with around 180 people in the office,
you’re in for a sweet treat every day). Fridays mean ‘Clover Time’ when we
let off steam with a few drinks at our local pub. If those walls could talk…
How we roll
We work hard and play constantly, whether it’s a quick Nerf battle
in-between meetings or a chess game that lasts a week. We regularly host
team get-togethers like barbecues, pool parties, board game nights, museum tours and gardening days. Our team building trips are legendary, from ski trips
to braving the Kondaa at Walibi. Cycling, yoga, football, field hockey
– we love to get active. Plus, every December, Saint Nicholas pays us a visit to spoil Emakina kids.
Welcome to the ‘hood
We hand-picked our office in a leafy, laidback part of Brussels – away
from the city buzz but with lots of great restaurants and big-name shops.
A typical day? Zip into work with your cool e-bike, join a HIIT workout in
the park and grab a quick shower before your first stand-up meeting.
Over lunch, pick out some good wine for dinner or shop for toys for your
nephew’s birthday. Soak up the sun on our terrace or check on your
tomatoes in the veggie garden. After work, load up on groceries, then
hop on the train back home.
We attract some of the coolest, smartest people from around the world, so
expect a real melting pot of cultures – 20+ nationalities, to be exact! These
experts love to share their skills in hackathons, school talks and conferences
– plus our lunch-hour Hungry Minds sessions. The learning doesn’t stop
here. Perhaps your Turkish co-worker will share her best pişmaniye recipe, or
you’ll learn how to say “two beers please” in Uzbek?
During the COVID-19 lockdown, we treated staff to food deliveries at home and
created our own internal radio station, Emakina FM. The AI-powered app we helped to
build, Heartcount, constantly measures how people are feeling and if they are coping.
To keep spirits up, we invite staff to safe, small gatherings, from Aperol tastings to dog
walking and bubbly in Troll forest. Daily e-coffee dates and ‘what’s up’ check-ins keep
everyone feeling supported. And then there is always Workplace where our meme
game is STRONG.
have better ideas
We believe in creating a working environment where
everyone can bring their true self to work, regardless of your
age, sex, race, sexual orientation, disability, nationality or
religion. We also believe that work isn’t your whole life. We
love it if people have side hustles, hobbies, kids, cats and
secret knitting skills. We encourage a balanced life through
lots of wellness activities, from yoga and gardening to
meditation in the park.
