Futureplay is a streamlined, lean organization with as little hierarchy as possible. It creates discussions, sometimes heated ones, but we want everyone to voice their opinion on matters they find important for themselves and for our company. No office politics, no big egos. Just great people working together to create something they're proud of.We aim to be a safe space in which our people are able to get their voices heard, get and receive feedback and grow as people and professionals. And we’re not just paying lip-service to that - we mean it. Every Friday, we all participate in 'Futureplaygrounds' - time away from the day-to-day to focus on learning those professional skills we’ve always wanted to develop, but never quite found the time for.
