Perks & Benefits

Flexible Work Time

Organize your work week as you like. We don’t watch the clock: your achievements count more than the hours you work.

Your Work, Your Hardware

We believe you work best using the tools you love. If there is anything that would make your workplace better, just ask.

Home Office

Life happens. Work from home when your little one isn’t feeling well or the plumber needs to come.

Short Breaks Don’t Count

Everyone needs to recharge now and again. Whether you shoot some pool or chat at the coffee machine, it won’t come out of your working time.

Your Growth

Take 10% of your week to look into new technologies, think about new ideas or improve your skills. 

Generous Holidays

As well as regular vacation days and public holidays, Lobsters get their birthdays, Christmas and New Year’s Eve off.

Office Yoga and Workouts

Join our complimentary yoga classes, offered twice a week in our Vienna office. There’s also Workout of the Day on Thursdays. 

Annual Health Checks

To assure your long-term well-being, we’ll help you find a doctor and give you time to organize your annual health check.

Standing Desks

Don’t like sitting all day? Your sit-stand desk lets you choose between standing and resting your feet in our ergonomic office chairs. 

Fresh Fruit & Healthy Snacks

Our snack bar offers not only tasty chocolates and sweets, but also vegan cookies, fruits, nuts and everything else you might need.

Hackfest

Our annual team getaway is full of fun team-building activities that help us relax and get to know each other better.

Social Events

We love spending time together. Anyone can join one of our great after-work activities like pub quizzes and game nights.

Team Events

Once every quarter, your team will organize a social event aimed at helping you to bond with your closest coworkers.

Billiards, Games & Playstation

Chat over a round of pool or try out a new game in the affectionately-named “apartment area” in our Vienna office.
