* 25 days of annual paid leave
* A solid pension-plan
* Competitive pay - of course, no one really knows what that means. To us it means that we pay you what seems fair to us, looking at your current experience and skills. We'll discuss salary during the very first talk we have with you to make sure you know what to expect.
