What Messagebird is looking for in applicants

Transform the communications world! Location? You decide!

We’re proud (and excited!) to be transforming the global communications landscape through our Omnichannel Platform-as-a-Service (OPaaS). 

Our Birds choose where they work from in the region we’re hiring in — this could be from one of our MessageBird hubs (Amsterdam, Singapore or Bogota) or remotely so long as it’s within a complementary timezone.... Want to work from a rural retreat? Sure, no problem! How about a bustling city getaway for a few weeks? Go ahead!

This allows us to attract and assemble an industry leading team from a huge variety of backgrounds & cultures,  making us more nimble, creative, and efficient!
