At a fast growing company everyone is expected to develop and tackle new challenges that will allow the company to achieve its ambitious goals. In order to maintain a top performance standard we want to help communicate goals, progress, development plans and learning opportunities.

At Factorial we pride ourselves on having extraordinary talent in different moments of their career.

We work daily to support these objectives both in our office and while working remotely. As Factorial is growing worldwide, we focus on expanding in an efficient and sustainable manner. Each new office we open on a global level represents an opportunity to share our company's values and culture with our new colleagues.
