We are multinational

Being a company with people working for and with us from around the world comes with a price: we expect every employee to be fluent in English on a technical level. Everyone at The Plant is bilingual, some of us speak three or more languages.

But I'm not a programmer...

Every now and then we are also looking for other reinforcements at The Plant such as Project Managers, Consultants, Designers or Office Managers. Don’t be shy, apply anyway, and we’ll take it from there!

Near or far, or even elsewhere.

We have offices in Japan (Tokyo), Australia (Canberra) and China (Hangzhou). Being webworkers ourselves we embrace the web wholeheartedly, which enables some people to work for us from their homes. The teams for most of our projects consist of people located in several countries.

What Programming Languages?

Although we do most of our work in Ruby and Go, we don’t make it a requirement to have experience in one particular programming language. Whatever language you have experience in, simply make sure you’re damn good at it. Good programmers can pick up another language rather quickly – so will you.
