Meaningful work in an inspiring workplace

Our culture is rooted in an inspiring environment where everyone has the opportunity to harness and develop their skills and potential fully. We value great colleagues who offer their help and support, and we get to do meaningful work while solving the biggest challenges of our time. There are many ways in which VTTers value the flexibility at our workplace.​ 

Working together brings us joy

Collaborating and co-creating make us more ambitious, and we get to solve even greater challenges when we join forces. Working together brings us joy and makes us feel engaged at work. 

We want to encourage curiosity, support continuous learning, and be interested in what's happening around us and in our customers' and partners' environment. We want to become more customer-centric and understand their needs better.
