Want to be a Konger?

Since the day our founders, Aghi and Marco, became friends in Milan, Italy over 10 years ago, they dreamt of building a global company grounded in strong principles. Today, we have employees in over 24 countries and growing! Since day one, we have felt that diversity would only make us stronger, and we continue to march down that path as we grow. Our remote culture has thrived over the past year, and we continue to invest in our employee experience with dedicated teams and programs. Here’s an inside peek at what this looks like:

  • ✈️  Annual We plan an annual offsite at an exciting location where we come together once a year to stay connected with colleagues from near and far.
  • 🍩  Weekly Donut Chats Kongers from across the globe are randomly paired into “get-to-know” activities and share their discoveries.
  • 🌎  Worldwide Kong Update Teams from across the organization share updates, wins and lessons learned during our company all-hands.
  • 💰  Home Office Stipend We empower employees to build the environment that supports their productivity.
  • ❤️  Flexible Time Off & Dedicated Unplug Days Take the time you need to take care of you!
  • 💻  Virtual Events From trivia to fitness challenges to guided meditation, we know the workplace is more than just work. There’s something for everybody to get involved!
  • 👏🏼  A Dedicated Employee Experience Team A team of community enablers drive our culture of belonging by solely focusing on our Kongers’ journeys and connections.
  • 🦍  Kong Squad We provide a space for all Kongers who have a passion to be involved with culture-focused initiatives with a singular focus – and ensure every employee is proud to say they work at Kong, no matter where they are in the world.
