  •  Keeping active

We believe moving is important. We encourage you to take a walk rather than rely on Slack and emails, get active with table tennis and for something to really get the blood pumping, we offer discounted Gym membership for FitX below us at our Berlin Headquarters.



  • Keeping fueled 

It's not only important what you do with your body, but what you put into it. Twice a week fresh fruit is delivered to the office and every Friday we also have our yummy company lunch. That said, the customary birthday cake or treats brought back from holiday are definitely hard to say no to! 

At Zenjob, we want everyone to feel valued and comfortable to bring their true self to work every day. The collective team spirit is an important part of who we are, in fact, it’s one of the main things that people say they love about working at Zenjob. We see ourselves as being supportive, dependable, imaginative and ambitious. We enjoy working on interesting and challenging projects with autonomy, knowing that our work has a direct impact on our fast-growing and innovative startup.
