This is how we do 😎

In short, we’re a tight group of strategists, designers, and engineers. Our main goal is building whatever is necessary to make our clients’ businesses grow and making the lives of their customers a little easier. And we’re quick about it, too.

Put more concretely, we’ve got several agile product teams working directly with clients to continuously shape and build the digital product that’s perfect for their needs. Go to market ASAP, then start iterating for maximum impact. **This is why being fast doesn't imply you're sacrificing quality, or creating a stressful environment.**‍

The keyword here is “impact”. Both for our clients, and for the people working on all these cool projects. We do this by quite literally focusing on creating focus. Clear outcomes each week, one project at a time, no distractions.

Beyond that, expect a dynamic environment filled with young and ambitious people, as well as lots of project variety and room for R&D and personal growth.

The age of AI

At Bothrs, we're not just keeping up with the latest in tech; we're racing ahead. We're looking for someone with a healthy curiosity about Generative AI.

Do vector embeddings, vector databases like Pinecone and Weaviate, Langchain, or Chainlink ring a bell? Great! We're eager to explore how these cutting-edge technologies can revolutionize our approach to digital product development.

Your enthusiasm for these fields will be a huge plus, as we believe they hold the key to unlocking even more personalized and efficient solutions for our clients. Staying ahead of the curve and constantly learning is part of our DNA.

If you're excited about being at the forefront of AI and its practical applications in web development, you'll fit right in!

Bringing it home 🚀

Believe us when we say our team of heroes means the world to us. Simply put, we care about three things: personal growth, having high impact, and getting paid. It’s hard to get a company to thrive if the people in it can’t grow along with it. And you can’t force personal growth either; so where does the motivation to learn and grow come from? That’s right, it’s knowing your efforts are making a difference. Every day, we want you to leave the office with a sense of accomplishment. Oh yeah, and a nice paycheck also helps.
