Since inception in 2008 we have always been passionate about delivering ultimate delight to our users in everything we do, from product to marketing, and sales to support. We do this by working with the best people, and by working smart - knowing when to put in an extra gear and when “good enough” is enough. We also believe that by having a great time together - on and off work - we build stronger relationships and have more energy to deliver great results consistently.
At the point of the 10-year anniversary of JamesEdition we are now entering a new phase with focus on rapid growth through launches of new products and business models. The first step in this journey is to - in addition to our Boston, London, Amsterdam and Hamburg offices - open up a brand new headquarter in Moscow for global Sales, Operations, Marketing, Product and Tech.
