Responsibility and Autonomy: the core of our culture

We understand that a strong company culture emerges from meaningful human interactions. That's why we place immense value on responsibility and autonomy, making them central to everything we do. Our shared office space is more than just a workplace; it's a home where these values come to life, fostering a community of innovation and collaboration.

Where culture and tech meet

Creative Day

Each month, we take a day off our projects and play. It's a time for experimentation, learning, and collaborative creation because we believe that fun adds value. Whether it's a multiplatform mobile tech competition or developing tools to enhance productivity (like a chat command for coffee orders), creativity is at the heart of what we do.

All-hands meeting

Premium Minds' monthly all-hands meeting is our most sacred ceremony. It is where we get together to discuss important matters on management and strategy. But also where we welcome our newcomers, look back at historical company moments and celebrate team and personal victories.

Summer Internship

Our summer internship is as hands-on as it gets. A group of interns joins forces as a development team to create a tool Premium Minds will treasure. For two months, these aspiring developers and project managers are challenged to build an app from scratch. And with great power comes the great responsibility of having us as its target users.

Open Source

IIt is no secret that we are big open source advocates. That is why we like to give back to the community by donating to our favorite software and tools. These are just a few of those we've contributed to.

How we take care of our own


All work and no play would make us dull. We like to invest some time in hanging out and sharing our non-code-related interests. That might involve grabbing a guitar, a ball, some board games, or hitting the dancefloor. And when stress arrives, these bonds come in handy.

The IT world moves at a fast pace. We keep up with it by making sure we carry on learning and challenging ourselves. Premium Academy is a blend of tech talks and workshops where our team shares insights internally. And now we've extended this knowledge-sharing endeavor to students through our After College Experience.


There is so much more than meets the IT. Because we keep on looking inwards, we keep finding subjects that interest a lot of us. Sometimes we can be the experts and do our own talks - on history, travels or management strategies. Other times, we like to invite others to come and share with us, on topics such as finance, the role of sleep or conscious communication.


We're quite serious about looking after our bodies and minds - a healthy team is a happy team. It is important to take breaks and give our brains some time to reset. That's why we cherish our mindfulness sessions or a visit to the zen room (and not only to wait for the code to compile). We also spend some time on our yoga mats, playing football or trying new sports together.
