Why join us ?

UNGUESS is based on an inherited set of values. Mostly, they come from the startup culture: the capacity to take frank and fast decisions, the ability to execute rapidly the strategy, adapt fast to the environment and the willingness to challenge every time the status quo, the endless research to measure everything and excel performance to reach perfection, the intense customer culture and the constant research to hire the best team to give the customer the best product ever, the profound willing to conquer the world and create an environment where meet amazing people, etc.

Speaking about the organization, 4 areas are really important for us: 1. networking is the best word to explain our organization (therefore not hierarchical), 2. we strive for people empowerment, 3. we believe in startup validation and experimentation and 4. radically transparency and candour are at the base on what we do.

It comes that we don’t believe in organizational charts. They are the old way to represent how people move within the company. We believe in a network of talents that, through people empowerment, can give us a “freedom and responsibility” organization.
