BEKO is colourful: we thrive on flexibility, open-mindedness and a solution-oriented attitude. Our company lives by these values not only in our daily work life, but also when choosing partners and future employees. We look for people who want to make a real difference: original, creative thinkers as well as real “doers”. The innovative learning method applied by 42, based on independent studying and solution-oriented teamwork, matches our BEKO philosophy which makes 42 coding school the ideal partner for us. Our partnership will enable us to identify future talent who does not only possess substantial technical abilities, but also creative problem-solving skills, and as well as a preference for working independently.
