When choosing Amplify, here’s what you need to know

  • We work with international clients, so travel is occasional, conference calls are regular.
  • Dynamic is one way to describe Amplify. We have ambitious growth plans which means you will be joining a growing, changing, evolving, learning, and never-giving-up, can-do organization. At the same time, challenges are faced as a team, in which people respect each other, so don’t expect a Wolf of Wall Street kind of atmosphere.
  • Flat structure and relaxed, sensible atmosphere – we are goal-oriented which means as long as we deliver on time and up to a great standard, we don’t care how you come dressed to work, if you work from a beach on Fridays or if you bring your dog along.
  • Work-life balance is a priority and we take this seriously – we know that happy people are productive people.
  • We will compete for every piece of the pie – the world’s top consultancies are up against us, so our level of interaction and deliverables need to be exceptional.
  • The opportunity to grow and learn is on the table, it’s up to you to grab it and make the best out of it. Create your own destiny.
  • Very competitive pay and performance-based bonus system.
