The start-up with experience

Circle Networks' key points

Culture

Start-ups offer flat hierarchies, quick decision making, exciting projects and great career opportunities — but they can also be nerve-wracking and strenuous in comparison to working for an established company. Circle Networks offers the best of both worlds.

  • Start-up with a concrete value proposition in the future-oriented cybersecurity industry
  • Direct contribution to the development of cybersecurity, without inherited burdens
  • Corporate culture as a combination of a can-do attitude and responsibility for our work and commitment to its results
  • No culture of being present, neither in time nor in place — we expect no-one to be always available or to relocate immediately
  • Experienced management with a 20+ years background in safety-critical engineering and corporate leadership
