Your new team:

Our headquarters may be in Berlin, but you will find our team members working from home, from their favourite cafe, from their balconies, from Munich, Valencia, Madrid or South of France - pretty much anywhere they want. But despite being geographically spread, we are strategically united in changing the price-promotion game for good. We work in small teams with fast feedback loops, which enables us to “get stuff done” and work on challenging problems. Because our team comes from all over the world, our company language is English, (but you might hear the odd German, Russian or Spanish conversation).

At Segment of One, we keep the office environment alive in remote locations by meeting for a virtual coffee and meeting up at exciting offsite locations across Europe every six weeks (in "normal" times).

As an equal opportunity employer, we welcome applications from candidates regardless of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, or background.

By submitting your resumé and application information, you authorize Segment of One to transmit and store your information in the Segment of One recruitment database, and to circulate that information as necessary for the purpose of evaluating your qualifications for this or other job vacancies within Segment of One.
