This is a remote position and most of our team is located in Europe. For reliability reasons (and to make sure we can all sleep well at night) the ideal candidate is located in a non-European timezone. However, feel free to apply regardless of your location/timezone, as we are prioritizing technical and cultural fit over location. A non-European timezone is just a bonus for us.
