We have decided to bet hard on asynchronous work. It's been a year since we began working async at MarsBased, and the balance is overall very positive. We think it is the future of work: a life-changing approach for location-independent and happier professionals.
This month, we've celebrated MarsBased's 9th anniversary with a team get-together in Barcelona. We had several tech and non-tech presentations, team discussions, a review of the company projects, etc. and after lunch, we had time for more fun immersing ourselves in a laser tag battle. There was time for sports, drinks, dinner, and going to karaoke as well! It's always an immense pleasure spending quality time with the bestest colleagues ❤️ We'll next meet for our company retreat in Formentera in May 🏝

Our clients 🤝
Signed THREE NEW contracts
Over the last weeks, we've signed contracts with three new clients, which means we're 100% booked for several months. We’re building a prototype for Boston Consulting Group, one of the biggest business consultancies in the world. We'll be developing a CMS with a custom publishing workflow for The New Journal, a new digital media by the EU Scream owners. Last but not least, we're developing integrations for Hireflix, a B2B SaaS company from Barcelona focusing on async video interviews. We can't be happier about the new projects ahead. A big thanks for choosing us as your tech partner!
