Work with the tools you love

Food and Drinks delivered.

Because the basics should be taken care of.

Great places to eat nearby, delivery services all around

When there’s nothing you fancy in our well stocked kitchen, the ZenMate team normally enjoys their lunchbreaks at one of the many nearby restaurants or sitting on the meadow in the park. If you just can’t tear yourself away from your project for that long – don’t worry! We’ll call in a take-away for you!


A team: Not just at work.

Not just colleagues, but friends.

Everyone has a place in our fun, international team.

We believe that a team that gets along well together, works well together. After you get to know our fantastic group at one of our many team events or evenings, you’ll see that at ZenMate, everyone is considered a friend, not just a co-worker.
