Life at PhoenixDX

We work flexibly

We’re all human and we value the need for working from anywhere as well as flexibility around balancing work-life and home-life. Our teams are based in many countries, making it important to adapt to each other’s needs.

We have each others backs and co-own each others success

Co-elevate with your peers. Trust is stronger than control at PhoenixDX. Autonomy and ownership are part of our core values. With that comes the responsibility of teams co-owning each other’s success, having each other’s backs and creating more than working relationships.

We celebrate diversity

Diversity and inclusion are in our culture from the ground up. We have an ‘United Nations’ approach, where amazing human beings will co-create new experiences. We believe in better outcomes through diversity.

We serve

The common denominator of all high performing teams is that they lift each other up, are committed to each other and exist to serve. We believe your success is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.

We are always getting better

We give book allowances, courses and instil a continuous learning culture. We apply retrospectives and other agile principles, though we hire people with a growth mindset. We have weekly virtual lunches, fortnightly tech learning days, quarterly business meet up and make mentoring and coaching an integral part of our cultural DNA.

We have a 21st century organisational design

Our organizational model allows us to create, dissolve, and remix squads with a minimal disruption to individuals or leaders. This gives us tremendous abilities to address both temporary and long term opportunities for customers. Using agile principles combined with a strong culture first backbone allows us to have high impactful teams.

We seek transformation and exciting digital projects

We know that feeling fulfilled at work is about working on impactful projects and growing whilst doing it. We are fortunate to be able to serve impactful organisations that rely on us to shape new concepts, digital products and work with us to create their future. Examples include ‘Uber eats like’ apps, ‘Facebook like’ apps, video applications, marketplaces or field services applications with mobile first.

Our Values

These PhoenixDX Values underpin how we interact within our team, with our customers, our partners, and our community.

Value Through Agility

We move fast and deliver value constantly.


We do what we say we will do and own the outcomes.

Teamwork for Results

We believe in co-elevation of people, having each other’s backs, and establishing deep relationships with all stakeholders


We set a high bar and strive for excellence in all our work.

For the Long Run

We prize long, close relationships with our clients.

Radical Transparency

We are candid, clear about our intention and not afraid of speaking up.

Corporate social responsibility

“We want to be recognized for excellence in our industry, the strength of our values, the depth of our relationships and being an humanitarian-focused company.

Giving back to our communities and the world is a core part of our culture, so we actively seek people who genuinely care about making a difference. We are very proud of the good we can do at PhoenixDX, both inside and outside our workplace, and looking for these ethics in candidates is a “must do” for us.”

They strive to achieve a culture of inclusion through education, research, conversation, and collaboration in the #TechDiversity community.
