Work-life balance

Where possible, we like to enable people to work in ways that suit their working styles, which is why we have a hybrid-working model. Our teams generally like to have at least one team day per week at the office (the tasty lunch and Barista-made coffee may be a factor), but besides that, it’s up to you and your team.

Benefits for expats 

It can be daunting starting a new job AND moving to a new country. That’s why we offer lots of support for our many expat colleagues, including:

  • Relocation package: If you join Picnic from abroad, we’ll cover your trip to Amsterdam, sponsor your Visa, and offer you a month of accommodation while you settle in (as long as regulations allow).
  • In the Netherlands, we offer support with your first tax report as well as arranging the 30% ruling.
  • From health insurance to living arrangements to pet passports, there are always colleagues who’ve faced the same challenges and are more than happy to help!

COVID-19

We care about your health and wellbeing. As such, we currently support online interviews and remote onboarding (learn more about the process here).
