The Bitdegree Culture

What Makes Us What We Are

Customer Obsession

The customer is always our starting point. We extensively research and strive to understand our customers better. We work eagerly to earn and keep customer trust.

Developing the Best

Every person can be a leader. Our leaders place great importance on mentoring. Because we want to see more leaders, both in BitDegree and around the world.

Delivering Results

The results of our work are what define us, and nothing else. We focus on the key inputs for our business and deliver them with the right quality in a timely fashion.

Knowledge is a human right

That's what we believe. Every person has a right to be skilled and educated. Every obstacle to gaining knowledge has to be abolished if we want to build a better and brighter future. We work for a future where the only thing that separates you from knowledge is a slow internet connection.
