Say hello to CKSource!
We are working on an open-source application used by millions of users. Our flagship product is CKEditor 5 - a powerful, modern, and user-friendly rich text editor, enhancing many CMS and CRM systems, as well as various internet platforms. CKSource's clients include giants such as Microsoft, IBM, Zendesk and Drupal. For over 17 years , the company has been developed by versatile programmers who set trends in the field of creating advanced technologies for content editing.
In September 2022, CKSource officially joined the exclusive group of organizations certified with the Great Place to Work® title. Our company presented outstanding results in some key metrics, with trust-based relationships topping the list. The award is the most recognizable distinction for the "employer of choice" that companies aspire to and the only certification based entirely on what employees say about their experiences in the workplace. And 100% of CKSource employees agreed that “This is a friendly place to work” and “When you join the organisation, you are made to feel welcome”.
What our employees say
A newly hired employee can expect that their work at CKSource will not be completely isolated and that their voice will be heard and taken into account. They will receive feedback on both soft and hard skills - in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
I started my work at CKSource many years ago and from the very beginning, it's been a place where people care for each other and each individual has a voice that matters. I still enjoy my time here, as new challenges come up and allow me to develop my technical and soft skills. And... I simply love our products!
What I really love about CKSource is the outstanding culture of embracing innovative ideas, and focusing on team & self-development, which genuinely allows you to spread your wings.
Already after the first meeting, I knew that CKSource is a bull's eye! The recruitment process was very smooth. I found a lot of interesting challenges here. I think CKSource is a great place for independent and creative people who value great communication with colleagues.
CKSource offers a considerable number of challenges to solve each day. Would you like to try solving them?
