What can we offer?

An open, inclusive
place to work

We’ve a flat organisational structure with an emphasis on open, honest communication. There are no siloes, no hierarchies and no barriers. We embrace diversity. We want to create an inclusive team environment that’s enriched by our different perspectives and backgrounds.

A remote first

It’s what you do that matters, not where you do it. You can work from our offices in Dublin, Poznan or Bratislava, or work on a fully remote or hybrid basis. We believe in a healthy work-life balance and organise ourselves to support you in this.

A focus on

We run projects to evaluate new frameworks, create tools for internal use, contribute to the open source community and research new ways to use existing products in new problem domains. We also use the likes of Kotlin, Rust and GraphQL and constantly push existing boundaries.

Learning & development

Sonalakers stay with us because we deliver on career progression and provide opportunities for continuous professional development. Our learning and development initiatives cover technologies, methodologies, design, emotional intelligence and people-oriented competencies.

Investing in you

Every Sonalaker gets a training budget and paid training days every year to upskill. This covers courses, training, books or conferences. It’s not just technical training in AWS, Java, Kotlin or React, it also covers soft skills like leadership training, interview techniques or English lessons.

Knowledge sharing

Peer-to-peer knowledge sharing is central to what we do. We organise weekly tech, design or process talks and host monthly all-hands meetings to keep everyone updated. Our internal workshops provide insights into new technologies and processes.

Communities of practice

We form expertise groups to discuss disciplines like front-end, back-end, project management, UX and QA. We delve into new concepts, burning issues, new tools or the latest trends. You can meet people with similar interests, stay informed and get insights on the latest industry developments.

Learn on the job

Our varied client base provides opportunities to work on different tech stacks, methodologies and applications. You can work with international organisations and develop your English, if it’s not your first language. Our experienced senior developers, designers and leaders are on hand to provide expertise and mentorship.

Giving back -
tech in education

We believe it’s important to contribute to the community, and while we pursue lots of initiatives every year, our primary focus is on the adoption of technology in education. The following are two initiatives that we heavily support:

Kinia - we helped found this amazing not-for-profit business that promotes education using creative technologies, with a focus on less-advantaged communities. Kinia has to date trained over 16,000 educators and impacted the learning of 200,000 young people.

Gatoto School - we built an extensive computer lab for this school in the Mukuru slum in Nairobi, Kenya, and we are supporting the advancement of digital learning techniques within the school’s curriculum to help set an example of what’s possible.
