Skip to open roles


We strive to provide an environment that is conducive to a good work/life balance. This includes:

We have offices in Paris, France and Iaşi, Romania with subsidies for public transit or cycling. For those who prefer partial or fully remote work, a monthly budget for home office accommodations is available.

As a small company, we aim to help our team members grow. We provide opportunities for training and acquiring new skills, and we prefer to promote existing team members into leadership roles.

Our work is public research. There are opportunities to travel to conferences and/or publish papers if you wish to do so.


A portion of our funding comes from European and French grants. Funding from these sources can only be spent on salaries in the relevant jurisdiction. For this reason we will prefer candidates from France or other European Union member states.

We are able to provide support for immigration to very promising candidates from beyond the EU.

What we look for

Our current team primarily works remotely with flexible working hours. Since we work across several timezones we expect new team members to be able to manage their time well according to whatever schedule makes them the most productive. We avoid micro-managing and working overtime.

Qualities we value in a candidate include:
