Our core values
What describes the Simacan?
Simacan is a young company in several ways; we are growing and developing at a rapid pace and employ quite a lot of young people. We are very proud of the fact that our customers love the high quality standard and reliability of our solutions and services. Because of the high demand for our solutions we are constantly short of hands and always looking for new and talented colleagues.
We value input
Everyone's input is important to us, because we all have our own wealth of experiences, which we like to learn from. We especially value the input of new employees because of their fresh perspective. An important rule that we always try to adhere is that we do not make assumptions. As a new employee, you have the perfect opportunity to question our assumptions, so we are happy to hear your remarks! We always go for the best practices, and we are very sensitive to good arguments to renew and better our processes.
In addition, we welcome new and creative ideas with open arms! They can lead to new functionalities or to completely new product lines. And before you know it, your experimental code will be used nationwide.
