  • Active relocation assistance
  • All-hands company trips to a wide range of places and team-bonding experiences, e.g. the beaches in Malta and Ibiza or even skiing the slopes of the French/Swiss Alps :-)

Perks & Benefits

In Penneo, we believe that work should not be having negative impact in your personal life. Therefore, we do have some benefits to make things a bit easier for you

  • Great lunch buffét

    Lunch is an important refill for getting energy, and also for having a break and talk about everything. In Penneo, you can enjoy a lunch buffét serving a variety of hot and cold dishes, salad and bread, and it's different menu every day and every week!

  • Fitness facilities

    Going after work to a different location can be a hassle, so why not just go down in the basement and enjoy a good work out? You can relax in the sauna and take a shower afterwards, and feel relaxed before the evening!

  • Friday bars and company trips

    Every first Friday in the month, we have a Friday bar at the office! Penneo serves drinks and snacks, usually with a DJ and most often with guests present as well! It is a lot of fun!

  • Flexibility

    Because we do not want work to be in the way of important stuff, we want to be flexible! Some people have kids, or they have an exam, or a dentist appointment? Don't worry, we always try to make it work out!
