Some extra info

We are open to full time permanent and contract roles.

We’re flexible and remote-first, we generally meet up one day a month in person. Our leadership team has families and we know that productivity occurs at different times of the day for most of us. However, our projects determine how and when we work – usually normal 9-5. In-person meetings and on-site workshops are back on the agenda where people feel comfortable. 

Our interview process starts with an informal chat to find out about you, followed by one formal interview with a task thrown in to make sure you’re suited to Thunk. Don’t worry, it’s not free work!
