Meet Reaktor

Digital services are our bread and butter. We help international clients (adidas, Lego, HBO, Finavia, FC Liverpool, and others) succeed in technology. Our Nordic culture defines the key principle of Reaktor: offering exceptional technological competence while deeply caring about the well-being of our teammates.

For more than 20 years, Reaktor has been shaping the digital landscape from our HQ in Helsinki and global offices in Amsterdam, New York, and Tokyo. And we don’t want to stop there 🚀

Lisbon hub

Tech community based on skill, care, and hard work

We launched the new tech community in December 2021 in the city with the best sea views, the most picturesque yellow trams, and the tastiest pasteis de nata. Which at the same time happens to be a buzzing technology hub, ranks among the safest cities in Europe, and is accessible from all the European capitals in under 4 hours. We try to choose locations that can offer the highest living standards and happiness levels to Reaktorians, and Lisbon ticks all the boxes.

We are bringing together engineers of various professional and personal walks of life to  share expertise, build meaningful digital solutions, and connect with teammates and clients from all over the world. Currently, our international team has settled ground at São Sebastião. We’ve got a brand new office, a state-of-the-art coffee machine, and team dinners every Thursday. But more importantly, our work towards building a tech community based on skill, care, and hard work is in full swing. And we’re just getting started.

Autonomous teams

Executing low hierarchy and taking on responsibility and freedom in our work is at the core of what we do. Reaktor teams act as trusted advisors in making decisions on what works best for the client, team, and project at hand: be it choosing the relevant tools and technologies or adjusting the ways of working - no managers in between.

Hybrid work mode and flexible hours

Reaktor pays great attention to the work-life balance of employees, so being able to choose a place and time to get your work done is something we value a lot. We are currently operating in a hybrid model. We believe in the benefits of having face-to-face time with the team in the office 2-3 times a week, and we also help you to set up an ergonomic workstation at home. You can always take flexible time off as long as it works for the team and the client.

Collaboration between offices

By becoming part of the Reaktor Lisbon community, you take on the advantage of joining a small dynamic team of 20 (and growing) and getting access to the expert network of 600+ Reaktorians at the organization at large. Project teams work closely with team members from Amsterdam, Helsinki, New York, and Tokyo offices. Travelling between offices and building connections with people from all over the world comes as a plus.

“I used to run companies of my own because I love the freedom of working for myself. I think working at Reaktor is the closest I can get to that without actually having to run my own company. On top of that, there’s the fact that when things get tough or you need new perspectives on something, you’ve got about 600 experts behind you ready to help.”

Projects and technologies

Work in different domains

Our award-winning consulting, engineering, and production work is based on technological expertise and curiosity. We cover everything from developing digital strategies to building apps or websites, architecting and running systems. You will get to work on various projects in different domains – healthcare, retail, aero, media, and finance, to name a few – using the latest technologies. This way, you never stop learning new tech, industry insights, client management skills, and project management techniques.

Challenge the client

Your team will usually consist of developers, designers, sometimes coaches, business analysts, growth hackers, etc., building solutions for international clients. We see our strength is challenging the client and not only providing the solution but also improving the ways of working. For that reason, the projects usually last 6 – 24 months as opposed to going in for short stints. Agile practices are core to what we do, so you can expect Kanban boards, regular check-ups with the team, kick-offs, and retros with the client that may also take place on the client premises.

Technology agnostic

We believe that talented developers can create great things in any language. For that reason, we see ourselves as technology agnostic. We are looking for engineers that are great at their technology of choice and are curious to learn new ones. Some languages  that excite us include Typescript, React.js, Vue.js, Node.js, GraphQL among others. We enjoy sticking to the functional programming paradigm.

We support your development

We are here to support you in your development journey fully. You can take part in certification programs (for example, Scrum master) and numerous trainings organized both by Reaktorians and external experts. You are always welcome to contribute ideas and share knowledge as well.

We constantly learn from our colleagues. During our lunch-break Communities of Practice events, you can join Reaktorians from all over the world to discuss topics like mobile development, team building, analytics & growth, and much more. 

And don’t forget Reaktor’s very own podcast diving deep into the topics developers obsess over! Take a listen to what your future colleagues have been up to.

Reaktor culture - what’s in it for you?

We offer everything you’d expect of an international tech company, but what really makes us different is our culture — which isn’t so easy to put on paper. Our 5-star glassdoor ranking and a “Great Place to Work” certificate can do part of the talking.

“The thing is, there’s just no way to market Reaktor in a way that people would believe it. I definitely didn’t — it was strangely enough the interview process that sold me. Everything about this company is crazy - in a good way.”

Responsibility, freedom, and trust

The new smaller communities benefit from making fast decisions and experimenting by doing, and they are always backed up by Reaktor at large. This allows us to form meaningful connections with every team member and ensure everyone has a say in how the company works. We trust you from day one to know best what you need to get the job done – be it selecting relevant tools and technologies, learning a new language, or working flexible hours.

Community and whole personalities

We are always looking for whole personalities with their personal quirkiness who like to connect beyond the job-related conversations. And we love to spend time together! You can participate in a podcast club, set up a DJing workshop, or join a group to dive deeper into code with friends – whatever sparks your interest. There are tons of Slack hobby channels for you to join. 

Reaktor is also taking an effort to make the world even a slightly better place by taking action whenever we can. As citizens, we treasure sustainability, diversity, and accountability – the act of being human. You can check out some of our favorite projects here.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion

We are looking to hire, train, compensate and promote people from all backgrounds and walks of life fairly and equally to build the digital future together. You can look at Reaktor’s initiatives and actions here and check out Reaktorians’ thoughts on how the tech industry could be a better ally to women.

Here is a sneak peak of our office life:

What will your daily life look like?

A typical day at the office starts around 9.00 AM with chats around the state-of-the-art coffee machine in our lounge-like space in the center of Lisbon. Later on, we have daily stand-ups in our respective projects. That could be followed by a client meeting and diving into the hard work. Client work can sometimes be demanding, especially in the hybrid work setting, so it’s good to have your teammates around to turn to for support and professional expertise. 

Lunch comes at noon (perhaps because there’s a Finnish influence in the office, perhaps because the best spots have queues at 12 already!), but we usually go out together as a team. In the afternoons, our focus is on projects, often with some pair-coding thrown in the mix. Aside from client work, we might attend an occasional conference, host a meetup or share a tech talk with colleagues. We might end the day with some video games, going for a match of padel, or on Thursdays – a team dinner to connect with each other beyond the work hours. 

“We want to trust the people we work with, and for everyone to be open and self-driven. Even though we might work on different projects, we’re still a team and really want to nurture that.”
