We sometimes like to refer to ourselves as a tribe rather than a team. It’s because we work with a shared mission and a shared set of values. We believe in disrupting the status quo for the greater good. We believe in doing things differently and we’re quite sure that working at AxonJay is not like working anywhere else.
Today, we’re a team of IT specialists, data scientists, business strategists and innovation & sustainability people with a disruptive mission to make AI accessible and easy to use for any business.
Born in the year of the pandemic it was only natural for us to become a 'work from anywhere' company with people logging in remotely from the sandy dunes of the North Sea in Belgium, to the Swedish archipelago, Milan, Cologne, Munich, Frankfurt, Ljubljana, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and from our HQ and co-living space at Galerie du Roi Brussels. And with no need for large offices and company cars in every market, it was obvious that we build a climate neutral company.
