Our virtual office
For legal reasons, 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.
Remote work & contract
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.
Your contract fixed-price is engineered around your expectations, our possibilities and the overall implications of remote work.
Let’s have a transparent chat about it.
Yes, joining Stacktical means you are entrusted to own part of the company.
