We like all sorts of positive people from all sorts of backgrounds, and as most of the people we seek speak at least 2 languages. It is a multi-cultural workplace where different cultures are encouraged. All our professional staff require at least a bachelor degree and a master’s is preferred.

Working at 2thinknow requires an open-minded attitude and a ‘can do’ mind set. Attitude to innovation sets us apart. Our staff are open-minded to new and ancient market and economic concepts and ideas — evidence and data drive all we do. Socialists and fans of complex academic economic theories will not fit with our practical, evidence-based approach.
