Covid-19 times vs Playson
As an Agile Company, we were amongst the first ones in Ukraine to have transferred to remote work in mid-March 2020. Thanks to flawless communication and Scrum processes, we managed to maintain and even increase our productivity whilst working remotely — and we are super proud of that. 💪
What does it mean for newcomers in Playson?
🔹We hire employees for full-time remote work from all over Ukraine;
🔹In case you decide to work remotely forever — it is totally fine with us;
🔹In case you decide to work in our office in Kyiv or occasionally visit it- great news! We have renovated and transformed it to a co-working style so that our employees can have a hybrid choice of work mode ( mixing work at home and in the office just for a change);
🔹During pandemic times we make sure that your first days and weeks in Playson are as convenient as possible:
💻technical equipment is delivered to your home address wherever you are in Ukraine
🖥adaptation and onboarding on an immaculate level will make no difference in joining the company remotely.

Ambitious goals request the ability to quickly maneuver through changes in the world. Playson is all about that.
