Life at Komodo

At Komodo, we are focussed on having a real impact on young generations which takes a lot of empathy, drive and commitment. Having fun in a happy workplace where everyone can be themselves is also important.

We truly believe that great things come from diversity, challenges and growth, so we allow a safe space to make mistakes and then learn from them. We encourage everyone to have a say, bring forward new ideas and directly impact on our growth, regardless of their functional role.                     

Wellbeing is our utmost pillar to everything we do - from creating high-tech to improve students’ wellbeing to ensuring our own team takes care of themselves regularly and has a healthy work-life balance.

We are constantly working hard to ensure we provide a good work environment for our people, and as our team grows our culture only gets better.
