Life at our virtual office

Our headquarters are in Paris but our offices and our clients are everywhere in the World.

We’re a fully distributed company with a 100% remote workforce. So pretty much everything happens on Slack and various other collaborative tools.

Remote work at Stacktical

Remote work at Stacktical requires you to forge a contract with the Stacktical company, using your own billing structure. 

That means you would either need to own a company or leverage a compatible legal status.

Labour laws can be largely different from a country to another and we are not (yet) in a position to comply with the local requirements of all our employees.

Just because you will be a contractor doesn’t make you less of a fully-fledged employee of Stacktical. In fact, even our founders are contractors too.

Compensation Package

Fixed-price contract

Your contract fixed-price is engineered around your expectations, our possibilities and the overall implications of remote work.
