What do The Right Machine and Tink Tank have in common?
March 2020, when Tink Tank opened its doors for the first time, Thomas founded his company and was one of the first coworkers to find us. You might think that establish a start-up in times of a pandemic is a very hazardous idea. “C’est la vie”, Thomas would say in his nonchalant manner.
In the meantime we have been able to celebrate the first year of business together and watch The Right Machine grow. Therefore a coworker interview is long overdue!
