We're flexible!

Prefer to mostly WFH? That's fine! Hybrid? Great! Need to take 30 mins at 3pm to get the kids from school? Go ahead! We're more interested in your contributions than when and where you're working

Our facilities

Working on our hardware? Look no further than our state of the art lab. Prefer to be in an office sometimes? All the time? Our office has everything you need for productive working, including drinks and snacks to keep you fuelled through the day

Enhanced parental leave

Adding to your family is stressful enough without worrying about pay during those precious first few weeks and months. The UK team enjoy enhanced pay during parts of their statutory maternity, paternity or adoption leave

Taking time off is important for our mental health - all our Open Cosmonauts have 25 days holiday in addition to national holidays
