Benefits and Perks

Want to be a Konger?

One fateful day in Milan, Italy, Aghi and Marco became friends and dreamed up an idea for a business. Much has changed since that tiny garage filled with big dreams, but we’re still dedicated to building a company grounded in strong principles and committed to the idea that diversity makes us stronger.

Today, we continue to work to create a positive, inclusive, 
and high-performance workplace. We’ve developed a thriving remote culture and become a truly global company — with 
500+ employees in 25+ countries. And we’re still growing. Here’s a peek at what you can expect from a career at Kong.

Our values

How we do it

We’re passionate about solving the challenges that will fundamentally shape the future of tech. If you believe in taking ownership of your work, making an impact, and having fun along the way, come join us!


Customers are everything, we put them at the center of everything we do. We are all empowered to make an impact.

We are OWNERS.

We are drivers, not passengers and own the quality and outcomes of our work.


We work with purpose, obsession, and grit. It takes muscle to do hard things and doing hard things builds muscle.

We are REAL.

We are genuine, principled, and confident without arrogance. Show respect and kindness, especially in tough moments.


We prioritize speed, iteration, and results.

We are GLOBAL.

We work together from anywhere to achieve our common goals. Our differences make us stronger.


We value ideas over hierarchy. Never accept the status quo. We make bold bets, fail, and learn everyday. There is always a way.
