We look for ridiculously talented, driven, and passionate people that love the idea of working hard to create massively successful tech products. We're nice people looking for nice people, so we kindly leave smart-asses and divas at the door.
We think working at Bending Spoons will be one of the highlights of our lives. Nothing to do with the average professional experience.
Here’s why we think it’s so special.
Our apps are used and loved by millions of people all around the world, and generate revenues of millions of dollars every year. Your ideas and work directly affect users and matter big time.
Our incredibly selective hiring process ensures only extraordinary talents join Bending Spoons. Working alongside these amazing people will inspire you to give your best every day, and you’ll learn a ton from them.
Our success is very hard-earned. You’ll be tested and challenged to go beyond your limits. You’ll face some of the toughest business and technological challenges in a group where good isn’t good enough.
We want you to grow exceptionally fast. If you put in the hard work and persistence that it takes, we’ll be there to help with lots of formal training, a dedicated mentor, continuous on-the-job coaching, and by exposing you to a wide variety of challenges.
We pay generously (top 5% of market) and share equity, purely based on your contribution, independently of age, tenure, or experience. Perks include latest Mac and iPhone, quality lunch, and annual month-long retreats in amazing places.
We’re still a small team working furiously to become one of the greatest tech companies in the world. Rather than be 1 in 1,000 somewhere else, join us and leave your mark in the achievement of our lifetimes.
For most, Bending Spoons becomes both a family and a tribe. We share dreams, hard work, and play all around the world. It’s infectious, profound, and impossible to explain. Ask any Spooner: you’ll be smitten!
At Bending Spoons we have a very unique and innovative way of thinking about compensation and careers. Our philosophy on the topic has evolved and matured over time, but the goal has always been to foster a no-bullshit, truly meritocratic environment where the most talented people could reach their utmost potential in the fastest way possible, rather than focusing on fulfilling specific requirements to unlock a bonus.
We're very proud of the result of this journey of introspection and experimentation. A sneak peek: we believe that ownership is the best form of motivation, so we banished carrot-and-stick incentives, deciding instead to pay generous base salaries and allow deserving Spooners to own shares of Bending Spoons. What counts is a Spooner's value to Bending Spoons: we completely ignore past experience, age, or tenure.

To ensure our team is and stays wonderfully talented, we’re obsessively selective during our evaluation process. We identified the last Spooners among a staggering applicants, with success rate for software engineers at about so far. We look for brilliance, drive, and passion.
Take up the challenge!
Bending Spoons was founded in Copenhagen in 2013 and moved its HQ to Milan in 2014. It was a great decision: we’ve fallen in love with the city that we now call home.
From the imposing Duomo and Sforzesco Castle, to the magical Brera and the high-tech giants of Porta Nuova, the city center is truly diverse, beautiful, and full of history.
With some of the best Italian food at every corner, the widest varieties of international cuisines, Michelin-starred restaurants as well as authentic takeaways and the convenience of home delivery, you won’t lose weight around here.
Home to several major universities and capital of fashion and sports, Milan teems with friendly young people meeting up for easygoing aperitivos or wild nightlife, so socializing couldn’t be easier.
Getting around the city is so convenient, thanks to an extensive network of subways, light rail, and buses, and traveling internationally is as easy as it gets, thanks to Malpensa airport being an important hub.
When you feel like a heavenly getaway, reach globally renowned marvels such as Tuscany, Lake Como, the Alps, or Cinque Terre in just a couple of hours by car or train. An explorer’s dream!
Italy's most technologically advanced city, Milan is home to many tech startups, hosts hackathons, and features tech-perks such as Amazon Now, extensive car sharing, online grocery delivery, and more.
We deeply believe that thinking differently is one of our core strengths, and so how could we not embrace diversity? To decide whether we’d like to work with you, we only look at your talent and values, and not at your skin color, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, muscle mass, hairstyle, or dog/cat preference (bonus points if you prefer dogs).
