For PROGMATE clearly defined aim of business activity and value of the brand are most important. In order to explain motives for our actions, we present a brief of the company below.
Mottoes and slogans of the company
"The one who fights may lose. The one who does not fight has already lost." - Bertolt Brecht. Every day is a fight for us. Doing our job we struggle with time and own weaknesses. We want to be better and better to earn self-respect and win recognition of others.
Demand a lot and give even more
"I don't pay good wages because I have a lot of money; I have a lot of money because I pay good wages." - Robert Bosch. For PROGMATE money is not the most important aim. It is fundamental for us to be a tutor for a generation of talented programmers who will be the best specialists in the future.
We make our decisions fast because we know that sometimes it is better to make a bad decision than not to decide at all.
Sense of humour and attitude at work
What we do is our passion but we can laugh at ourselves and we know that life is not all about work.
