Getting started at SURFmarket

The main principles underlying working at SURFmarket are:

  • Freedom, trust and responsibility

You are given extensive freedom to organise your own work, trusted to make your own choices and held responsible for what you do, create or say.

  • Combining work and private life

Along with freedom, trust and responsibility, you need the space to make conscious choices and find a good balance between your work and private life. We give you that space: we believe people perform better if they are allowed to alternate freely between work, care or relaxation.

  • Customer-oriented

At SURFmarket, the customer always comes first. It is therefore important that you are a good listener and service and solution-oriented.
