When you ask a Droverian what they love most about working here, their answer will likely be “the people” We are very proud of the amazing team we have assembled across London and Lisbon. The following should give you an idea about what kind of internal culture you’d be joining:

We encourage proactivity and taking ownership of problems. We hate micromanagement. Instead, we let you set your own agenda and give you the space to learn and grow even if it means making a few mistakes along the way.
We support each other through thick and thin. If you are struggling, you can always count on the team to help you get unstuck.
We cherish feedback, whether praise or constructive criticism. There is no other way to learn!
Ideas are judged on merit rather than source. You can have tremendous impact no matter your role.
