Culture

Flat Organization with Open-minded People

We're no corporate assholes. We work in small teams or as independent specialists. We share common goals with no need for silos or hierarchy. Our strength comes from diversity of talent, cultures, and personalities.

Technology

Data-driven Products with Clean Code

Technology empowers us manage data in ways no one else can. We write clean, secure and meaningful code. We bring the potential of the future to the world of commerce today in areas like artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data.

Impact

A Transparent World with Better Business

We aspire for radical transparency with ourselves and our clients. Our solutions enable procurement to have more open dialogue and better decisions based on reliable data. We help businesses build more sustainable partnerships with their suppliers.

Our values

Honesty

We practice what we preach: transparency is in our DNA. At Sievo, we look at the facts and keep an open mind. Never be afraid to express yourself and speak your mind.

Caring

Sievonians look out for each other. We take the time to ask how are you doing and mean it. Caring also means taking ownership of our work and caring about our customers. 

Exceed

In work and life, we step up to the challenge and exceed expectations. We're looking to the future and asking ourselves "how can we make this better?"
