We drive people to challenge the status quo

We have a dynamic structure

We at PENCIL42 don’t like hefty structures, long chains and endless steps before making a decision. We love people who appreciate opinions, equality, responsibility, fast action and creating things together.

We have a Happiness Architect

To us, feeling happy at work is equally as important as coffee on a Monday morning. Our Happiness Architect makes sure that everyone feels like they belong on our work floor, they take initiatives to keep the fun alive and they act as confidant(e) for everyone who needs a listening ear.

We make sure you keep on learning

Internal training sessions, our own in-house mini-library, training budget for every employee to attend external training courses or conferences. We love to invest in your knowledge and self-development. Furthermore, you can always rely on your colleagues’ expertise in every project, we expand each other’s knowledge and not only do we meet our clients’ expectations – we exceed them.

About PENCIL42

In an industry where quality seems to have been pushed aside for quantity, and humanity for numbers, we are the ones that go against the stream. We don’t do that by ourselves. With a strong team of software architects and analysts, we want to make the difference. By listening before we speak. Thinking before we act. Drawing before we implement.
