3 years of Carangid

September 20, 2020

We are celebrating a special day: Carangid started now 3 years ago. In the last 3 years we managed to help a lot of clients over the world in property and job portal related problems. We have met very smart and driven people along they way, and also learnt a lot. Besides freedom and flexibility it is important to us to work on projects, where we can create value and help moving something forward. This is the reason why we are not selling ready to use solutions, but try to understand the problem and come up with a solution for that.

We are both really glad we started and are on this journey - both professional and personally. Traveling for work and for pleasure, getting to know and understanding cultures, that is one of the best parts!
