In 1980, Steve Jobs said that
the computer is the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.
Yet, we can still relate to the angry computer guy.
We're on a mission to reinvent how humans, teams and computers work together.
Work from anywhere, solve great challenges, and be part of our journey from the start.
We are a team of developers, technologists and experienced founders, with backgrounds ranging from Google, Slack, Visma and Twitch. We’re a virtual first company, which means we focus on remote work as the primary experience, and our goal is to have multiple TagrStudios around the globe for those moments where we need to meet physically.
We believe in freedom and responsibility, and an open, candid culture. We’re putting together a team which focuses on high output, who really want to make an impact on how people feel, sitting in front of a computer, trying to get things done. This is where people spend their work hours, and it should feel effortless, joyful, and like you're progressing everyday. That’s a big part of what life is about.
As a founding member of our dream team, you will get pre-seed stocks, health coverage, insurance and the opportunity to help build a software platform that aims to really make a dent in the world.

You love programming for its own sake, but mostly for what it allows you to build. You struggle with the pain of how manual our human-computer interactions feel. You define work life balance as a balance between paid projects and own projects. You're a life long learner and maker.
