LIFE AT SCIENTIA

Monday Funday.

A team that actually enjoys coming to work and spending time at the office?

Imagine that!

It’s something we’re immensely proud of at Scientia. We have morning catch ups in the kitchen with mugs of freshly-brewed coffee. We have fun-packed, mouth-watering team lunches, and out-of-office adventures. 

And in between our day-to-day tasks, meetings, and deep work, our airy, open plan office is filled with the sounds of laughter and passionate discussions about the future of finance and technology.

Find your ideal work-life balance

We’re always broadening our knowledge and sharpening our skills at Scientia. But we also believe a rich personal life is key to being productive and building a satisfying, successful career.

We don’t care about titles or hierarchies. We hire talented people and make sure they have ongoing training and professional development opportunities, so they can keep learning and become the best at what they do.

At the same time, our lunch breaks are sacred. And we make sure everyone gets to spend quality time with family, friends, and loved ones — both human and furry — so they’re raring to go when it’s time to knuckle down and get to work.

The doers are the major thinkers.

The people that really create the things that change this industry are both the thinker and doer in one person. – Steve Jobs

You’ll love it here!
