OUR CULTURE

Who we are

Not just another big group of techies;
we’re techies with a TWIST

We must be doing something right to last this long (25+ years), and attract some of the brightest minds and top talent in the tech industry. We partner with leading global IT companies to bring exciting technology products to market and push the boundaries of innovation. Our corporate culture, based on shared values and beliefs, unites our people and represents the cornerstone of our success.

We do cool stuff:

  • apply the most effective methodologies (agile, scrum)
  • handle quite a few important projects
  • innovate and standardize things at the same time
  • support STEM education with a passion

We offer a cool workplace:

  • guarantee desirable benefits
  • keep adding fun perks
  • maintain pleasant surroundings
  • have fun in many different ways

Leadership development


Our people make us who we are. Each they, they collaborate with their colleagues to bring new ideas to life and help us make the impossible possible. We are committed to supporting their success and do our best to make Comtrade a place where they can grow in their role, embrace new experiences, pursue different career paths, develop their talent to achieve extraordinary things and become a better version of themselves each and every day.

Diverse teams


We’re always looking for new and alternative ways of doing things. That’s why we seek to create a diverse workplace that reflects the cultural, individual and social differences of the modern world. Among our employees you’ll find people of different backgrounds and ideas – all working together as one team towards the same goal.

Open dialogue


At Comtrade, we believe in dialogue. Our philosophy is simple: build a culture of trust, respect and transparency. Our talented employees work in positive, close-knit environment where everyone’s voice is welcome. We are open to new ideas, communicate openly, brainstorm regularly, support each other, work hard and have plenty of fun along the way.

Brand Comtrade

We need you to know this upfront. We devote much time and effort to improving ourselves, as individuals and as a team. It started by discovering what we do and how we do it the most often.

we are proud of the fact that we:

  • just don’t get daunted
  • don’t ever take the easy way out
  • never settle for less than is possible
  • never leave anything unfinished

Then we described it in terms everyone understands. We now share the same vision and work as one team: we respect, motivate and empower each other to accomplish common goals. This makes us stronger and more effective.

In our tech world, our M.O. is counterintuitive, as we:

  • involve employees at all levels in all our initiatives and projects
  • consider informal communication very important
  • think that face-to face communication is quintessential
  • encourage knowledge sharing among colleagues

We keep titles, functions and responsibilities flexible, to ensure we enjoy work variety and don’t drop any balls in the process. Despite our size, we promote the feeling that we all belong to one large family. Yet we always work in small, flexible, fluid and provisional teams, which we form as needed. It makes work more fun, but also keeps us on our toes.

All of this helps us do great work with ease (it doesn’t replace great work, it enhances it).

We have grown and thrived for a full quarter of a century. In technology, that’s a long time. In our line of work, success comes through innovation and even the biggest of players are just one step away from becoming obsolete and forgotten. This is why we keep reinventing ourselves. So now you know our secret recipe. Be yourself, only better.
