about us

born without boundaries.

Magic happens when the brightest minds come together, regardless of where they’re from. Today, we are a fully distributed team of Proxonauts who love a good challenge and thrive in a culture of complexity and innovation.

this is what we believe.

Autonomy is everything.

You don't hire smart people and tell them what to do. You give them the freedom to chart their own paths. It's the surest way onward, and upward.

Talent has no boundaries.

We hire incredible people no matter where they're from. We hire people who do more than one thing, and do it well. As long as you're curious, driven, and great at what you do, you can find a home at Proximity.

Choose to act and dare to fail.

We encourage our team to act decisively, make mistakes and learn from them. Every mistake is an opportunity to learn, but every moment wasted hesitating is an opportunity lost.

We are a work in progress.

Every product we roll out can be made even better. Our best talent can grow even further. We believe that everyone and everything is always a work in progress, and we invest heavily in tools and courses that can help us grow.

We make our
differences count.

We are engineers, product managers, designers and geeks. We love what we do and we're great at it — but that's where the similarities end. At Proximity, we go out of our way to hire exceptional talent from different places, people with different backgrounds, ideas, approaches and opinions. These differences are powerful — they help us remember that there is no single right way of thinking and help us stay curious and humble.
