Be part of a high-performance team

We work toward our goals by being in constant communication in person and through a range of technologies. We also have big ears for feedback from customers to help us continually improve the Baraja experience. We are pretty good at what we do (but definitely not perfect), so you’ll be learning from and working with a top-flight team on a mission to be better every day.

What matters to us

We believe that our culture is one of our most important assets and we’ve wrapped it up with three key values that we do our best to live up to every day:  

  • Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - Passion to achieve. Resilience & learning. What's the next challenge?
  • Develop sustained high performance - It’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.
  • Build the machine that builds the machine - Great teams make great things. They also respectfully challenge each other to reach the next milestone.
