pleasant working conditions

With the exception of the on-site teams, all our employees work in the same pleasant location. Our workshop is in Geel, in a low-traffic area next to the canal.

Skilpod pays a decent and fair salary, based on what you contribute to our mission. We're also open to working with you as an independent contractor if this suits you better.

a fun, motivated and young team

Ok, we may be slightly biased, but we're convinced we're all great people to work with. This is because we're all invested in that single mission and our noses are all in the same direction. And maybe the internal team party budget also makes working here more fun...
