We're hiring: General Manager

Symphony is the first culture driven technology house dedicated to crafting the workforce of the future.

We stand shoulder to shoulder with the most creative entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley and the world. We work on the kind of challenges that keep entrepreneurs up at night and we build the teams and spaces that get engineers up in the morning!

Symphony is building a global community - not just a company - where bright minds want to come to work and play. Our current technological playground includes all currently popular technologies in Silicon Valley and it changes in sync with progress in the tech world.

After successfully building Symphony homes in San Francisco, Sarajevo and Belgrade and more recently in Novi Sad in the last year, doubling the headcount in the process, we are now building our first home in Macedonia. We are therefore very happy to announce the first vacancies for our first ambassadors in Macedonia.
