Working at ColorElephant

We’re a small studio based out of Porto, Portugal working with companies from across the globe to help them with their digital projects, allowing them to reach their marketing and operational goals. This means that if you join us, you’ll do a lot: from helping a growing high-end clothing brand sell more online to rebuilding from the ground-up an internal HR system for a multi-million dollar company. We work with passionate people that are not afraid to leave it all on the field. We’re bootstrapped and result-oriented, we’re small and agile. This is important for you to understand, as we’re looking for people who are technically capable but also a good cultural fit. This means if you come to our office you won’t find a playstation in every corner, we will not close a museum to host a party, we won’t have a slider, food-extravaganza or other ‘cool’ stuff. You, will however, find all the conditions to make good and impactful work: coffee and drinks, a strong learning and training package, flexible working hours, employee-oriented culture, a say in what we do and more importantly real-world projects where actual clients are going to use whatever you – together with our team – end up building. We’re digital natives, building digital products. This is ColorElephant.
