  • Early stage options:
    Besides a competitive salary, every member of our team will get options.
    Of course, there are never any guarantees that we’ll succeed.
    But if we do — and that’s how we’re betting — they could be worth a lot.
  • Freedom, interetsing challenges & learning opportunities: 
    As in every small growing company, there are many hats that need wearing in the beginning.
    But as we grow, you'll have opportunities to focus on your favorite career tracks, including leadership.

    Get ready for a lot of challenges that need tackling.

  • Remote-friendly work:
    Although almost all of our team is currently located in Tallinn or Tartu, we often work from other places.
    Which is part of why you can choose when and where you work, as long as you have an impact on customers and are aligned with the team.
  • Positive chaos: At Salv, you won’t find corporate benefits.
    You won’t find bosses who dictate what to do.
    And we hope you won’t find boring roles with inflated titles.
    Salv is just a place where you can make the right things happen.
