WHAT IS LIKE TO BE PART OF OUR TEAM !

A team of explorers

from all corners of the world now based in the heart of Amsterdam rocking the world of finance. We build smooth investment apps, support a community of 1,500,000 users, write financial news in 6 languages, make jokes about our CFO’s height and are sharing our dinner & drinks plans via Slack. 

If you're reading this, you’re considering working with us, which is great. We don’t plan to impress you with our growth numbers (that’s what Google is for). We’d like to share with you what we do, how we believe we’re making a difference and to give you an insight and feeling of what it is like to work at BUX. 

The financial markets

are a fascinating world. By engaging with them, we start to better understand the world around us and see how global events trigger market movements. In fact, we learn a lot about international business, finance and politics through trading & investing.

Next to this, trading & investing has become a way of building a better financial future. Nowadays, getting a dividend from holding an Amazon stock could be more profitable than having a bank deposit with a low interest rate. 

OUR MISSION & STORY

We inspire everyone to experience the fascinating world of finance

We launched

the first BUX trading app in September 2014 with an idea to make stock trading easy, affordable and exciting for everyone. Back then we were a team of 15 people with a handful of early adopters. Thinking back, we have achieved a lot since then. However, hands down the achievement we’re most proud of is the community we’ve built. With thousands of our BUXsters sharing their experience and knowledge across borders inside (& outside) our app. 

From an App to a community

Our community has inspired us to create more products for every investment need. We’ve recently launched BUX Zero, the app that will allow everyone in Europe to invest commission-free.

Freaking exciting. Want to work on cool stuff with us? 

OUR VALUES

Our values help us make decisions as a team and as a company. We don't hire based on a one-size-fits-all formula. Our differences make us stronger 💪🏼

YOU NEED TO BE

Adventurous & seize the opportunity
Knowledgable but keep on learning
Responsible for what you do

BE ADVENTUROUS AND SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY

Adventure challenges us to get outside the comfort zone, it broadens our experiences, teaches us new things and peaks our creativity. Replacing the fear of unknown by curiosity opens infinite opportunities. We believe that if something excites and scares you at the same time, you should probably do it. 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

BE KNOWLEDGABLE BUT KEEP ON LEARNING

We’re proud to have an extremely skilled team, but what is even more important, is that we’re always hungry for new knowledge. We inspire each other with our thirst for excellence and we’re not afraid to experiment. It’s better to try and sometimes fail (but to learn) than to sit tight and fail for sure. 

“I think it's very important to have a feedback loop, where you're constantly thinking about what you've done and how you could be doing it better. I think that's the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.”

BE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO

You’re given a lot of freedom at BUX. It’s up to you to figure out how to approach a problem. We know that sounds great, but there’s the rub: with great power comes great responsibility (c). If you want to change or fix something, go for it. 

Every awesome thing you see is like that because someone like you decided to do it. 

“People want direction on where they’re going... NOT micro-directions on how to get there.”

OUR CULTURE

IT DIDN'T CHANGE MUCH SINCE THE START

There’s one very specific reason why we’re proud of our culture. Keeping the company open, fun and human while growing fast is a big challenge, but as long as everyone contributes to keep it like this, it will stay great. 

OPEN & HONEST | FUN | HUMAN

In many companies

a lot of decisions are made behind closed doors. At BUX you feel that you’re involved and that all information is publicly shared. We don’t hide problems, we communicate them & solve them as a team. Our CEO can invite you for lunch and your colleagues will tell you if you accidentally spilled coffee on your trousers. You're welcome. 

Life is short

You spend a massive part of your life at work. Wouldn’t it make sense to spend this time at a place that is fun rather than boring? You can tell from day one that our jokes are sometimes weird, but after a victory beer in the office on Friday, you’ll get them all. We're not only having fun at company outings. Every day in the BUX office is a fun day! 

We treat each other

the way we would like to be treated ourselves. You can always rely on your colleagues whether you need trading advice or help with your knocked out knee. We try to go beyond understanding other peoples perspectives and be empathetic. So grab a lunch for your teammate if you see that they’re drowning in work. 

 

THINGS YOU WILL ENJOY

OFFICE VIBES

BUX office is located in the heart of Amsterdam, right next to the Dam square. It’s easy to reach by bike if you’re in Amsterdam, or by foot if you arrive at the Central Station. Every meeting room is named after the places we love to eat & drink at: Asian Kitchen (for the best/cheapest noodles in town), Brandon (for a typical Dutch bar with excellent beers), Wynand Fockink (for slurping on spirits). 

OPEN SPACE

Our office is laid out in open space with plenty of private spaces available if needed. We have foosball, Play Station, ping-pong and a fridge filled with special beers all within arms reach in our Canteen. 

🥗 GOOD FOOD = HAPPY PEOPLE ☺️

MARGY

This is Margy and she deserves a separate page in this book. Margy is important for our culture because she contributes to our productivity by making delicious lunches. We don’t have a salad bar or a buffet at the office, we have an extremely committed person who comes up with new & healthy recipes weekly.

BUX WEEKEND

Every year, we go on an epic 3 day trip together. This is not about team building, this is a way to celebrate our achievements whilst having a lot of fun and making friends and memories along the way. These trips involve dinners and drinks with colleagues and participating in (sometimes risky) activities like flyboarding, rafting and off-road jeep driving. 

LEARNING & SHARING KNOWLEDGE

It’s important that you feel that you’re constantly growing at BUX, both personally and professionally. Therefore, we have a dedicated training budget that you can use to improve your current skills or learn something completely new. And if you like to share your knowledge with others, your team will join you as a support group at any meetup. 

WORK FROM ABROAD

Being a team of 30 different nationalities, we understand how important it is to visit our homelands once in a while. Whether you want to escape from a cold Dutch winter or hug your mother, you’re encouraged to work from abroad for one month a year. As long as your internet connection is stable, you’re free to work from literally anywhere in the world.
