Good to know
Wakam is not based on a hierarchy but on a methodology where everyone finds his role and knows his objectives.
With a flat hierarchical system and a highly collaborative operating model, Wakam is an extremely agile and transparent company.
Every last Friday of the month, it's Free.day at Wakam, a day without meetings to take a step aside and dedicate ourselves to skills sponsorship or other activities (because we are curious, I remind you).
Full-remote is a reality at Wakam (there is even one Wakamee who works from his sailing boat ⛵)
Last but not least : we are nice and we have fun! (you'll find out by yourself 😉)
Wakam is a fully remote company. The Culture of Wakam has no borders: our cultural values work for everyone, and conversely, we can find people who fit with them everywhere, which is why one of our our cultural markers is “we work as we like from anywhere” (and we mean anywhere, we even have a Wakamee who works from his boat!) We are pioneering truly remote working. We can see that people are seamlessly integrating, bringing different perspectives and skills, allowing us to change our thinking and provide diverse solutions for ourselves and our partners in return. It’s a unique vision of work, shaking up the old ways and allowing you to bring your best without being restrictive about where. Don’t be scared, think big, join us! We are hiring the best!
