Our environment at Mesosphere
Work amongst some of the most talented and ambitious people in Silicon Valley and Europe.
Have an impact
Your input matters. We do not believe in rigid hierarchy.
New employees will receive a generous allocation of stock options. Currently we are still at an especially advantageous entry point into a very young company.
Pick your gear
We will get you everything you need to do great work.
We send employees from Hamburg to San Francisco for on-boarding enhancement and on other occasions.
A basic idea for our office in Hamburg is: "Come to us in Silicon Valley, or we’re gonna bring it to you!”. You will have our support to travel or permanently move to our San Francisco office.
We look forward to reviewing your application. Thank you for your interest in Mesosphere!
