About us

We’re a new breed of cross-border agency with remote working at its core. We believe great talent should not be chained to a fixed desk, a forced 9 to 5 or a dreadful commute in the city taking up a good chunk of their lives. In our view of the world, great people are more productive, happier and healthier if they are trusted to deliver great quality work without micro-management or being forced into the constraints of “the regular office job”. This leaves them more time to do what they love, whether that is walking their dog, spending time with family and friends, backpacking across southeast Asia or pursuing other passions. We are a team of digital nomads, who don’t live to work but work to live.

Our employees, consultants and freelancers wake up to the smell of coffee in Italy, nip out for a lunch with friends in Barcelona, go for a hike in the Lake District or an after-work jog on the beaches of Greece, all while delivering top-class work for their clients and projects daily.
