Everyone is built differently. Maybe you’re a night owl who likes to code in the evenings, or maybe you’re at your brightest when tinkering with tech over your morning coffee. Whatever kind of person you are, Carallon offers flexibility in working hours; as long as you get the job done, you can adjust your hours to suit you.

everyone's an engineer

At Carallon, all the managers are also engineers and software developers. This is true all the way up to the Managing Director. The company was founded by and is still led by engineers. This fosters a supportive work environment where like-minded people can easily collaborate to solve problems.

multiple projects

Carallon develops for lots of different products simultaneously. You’ll be challenged with creating completely new solutions as well as troubleshooting or optimising existing products. This means both that you’ll never get bored, and that you get to learn what you’re best at and most interested in.
