On top of the usual benefits – conferences abroad, healthcare, dental care, weekly lunch and breakfast and sports/culture vouchers, etc. – we also invest especially in the training and professional development of our employees. At Frantic we also offer a renewed remote office concept that encourages our people to work remotely from wherever they want.
