Title says in Vienna, is remote from EU an option ?

Thanks for your interest The uniqueness of our setup means we do our best work when together. Thus, we’re only looking for individuals who can work locally.

Curious. Is your team able to sponsor visas for non EU nationals?

Hi, If you are not an EU national, you would need to apply for a rot-weiß-rot karte using the points systems outlined here. If you think you would qualify, please apply for the position by sending an email to with your CV, description of why you want to work for contextflow/how you can contribute etc. Please include any relevant links (LinkedIN, github etc). Thank you!

You’re missing out on a great team worker (and probably a genius) like @teto.

Your decision aside, in general … I’d use a points system for hiring myself…
