Life at Topia
Our Topia team is inspired by our common belief in our mission: to enable companies to work everywhere. We believe that our diversity of experiences, perspectives, and ideas is our strongest superpower.

We have a very open environment and all ideas and feedback are welcome. We have plenty of opportunities for this via project kick-off and round table sessions, regular reviews, retrospectives, tech discussions and debates.
One of our values is Learn Relentlessly. To help accelerate learning, we frequently hold drop-in sessions, lunch and learns and occasionally you may be working on proof of concepts to bring in new ideas or technologies.
We have a relaxed office vibe, Friday beers, no suits, and geeky t-shirts are welcome.
