    Our Culture—Who we are🪐

    At Homa, we value brains over backgrounds and determination over degrees. We believe actual growth results from diversity — nationalities, backgrounds, skill sets, and personal experiences — all working towards a single objective. If you've got the smarts, energy, and motivation, no barriers keep you from going far.

    We are the people behind the platform - the creative specialists giving creators the data needed to power up their creativity. At Homa, we live by the three central values:

  • Ambition: we put flags on summits. We set our goals ambitiously high and don't shy away from the climb. We're on a mission to take over an industry thick with incumbents who won't go quietly into the night. To succeed here, you'll need a highly metaphorical shield and a sword.

  • Humility: we put our egos aside. We put our hands up. First to volunteer to help, second to high-five. Having an ego is natural, but letting it run the show is unhelpful to everyone. In the words of Mr. Lamar: Sit down. Be humble.

  • Curiosity: we keep our eyes open. We believe the best way to know anything is to question everything. And to do that, you need open eyes and open minds at all times.
  • Benefits
  • While success is its own reward, here are some of the benefits that come with working at Homa:
  • We offer essential benefits in France and specific locations, including health insurance, meal vouchers, public transport subsidies, childcare benefits, and life insurance
  • If you're interested in working from our newly renovated Paris HQ with a rooftop garden and WeWork amenities, we have a desk waiting for you
  • You will be working in English with our international team of top-tier talents from 35+ countries
  • You will be able to attend diverse team events and Workations (the famous company-wide Homa trip)
  • You will have quarterly reviews to help you grow within Homa and build your own career path.
  • From this employer
