Desana is a fast growing technology company based between the UK and Stockholm servicing customers in 40 countries and nearly 100 cities (and growing) globally.
We make it easy for distributed teams in scaling tech and enterprise businesses to access high-quality workspaces — from an hour to a whole day — anywhere, at the touch of a button.
We reduce commutes, and give people more choice and autonomy in where they can work, and in doing so, reduce real estate overhead for their employers by drastically increasing workspace efficiency.
The office space industry is being completely disrupted by a changing world, there has never been a greater need for it to evolve. We’re building the technology infrastructure to facilitate this evolution, and are building a world class team to help us deliver it to some of the most exciting companies in the world.
Remote, working predominantly in the EST timezone with the need to regularly work with our team in the UK.

Salary and Progression
Pay has always been a bit of a dark art.
We strongly believe the dark needs some light. That’s why we’re building tools to facilitate complete salary transparency and progression paths so that you’ll always know how you can grow and what it will mean when you do.
It doesn't matter who you are and what your background is - so long as you have the right skills and are a great team player, we believe that you should be paid fairly and the same as everyone else at your level.
Based on our framework (which computes above average salaries for your role across a number of sources and applies factors to account for things like your experience, seniority and location), your salary for this role will be between $54,830 and $81,276 depending on your experience and location.
Here’s what we have for your so far (but we want to add to our benefits all the time as we grow)
Plus regular salary reviews measured against transparent, clearly defined milestones and market benchmarks.
With company performance related bonuses - when we do well, you do well.
We will also provide you with matching 401k and Medical Coverage.
Flexible working hours
We’re a company built around the idea of flexible working. We don’t just sell the dream, we live it.
As long as you’re hitting your targets & covering your contracted hours we’re easy about when you work - it’s what works best for you.
You’ll get free access to the Desana app to work from wherever’s most convenient or best for you. Anywhere.
Or if working from home makes most sense for you, then feel free to work from home. Just know that you’ll have the option to use any of the spaces in our network.
You’ll officially get 28 days paid vacation in your contract.
Unofficially, we’re pretty relaxed. If you’re doing a great job and not taking the mickey, who’s counting?
Also, take your birthday off, no questions.
Meaningful work with people who care.
We work with you to set and achieve your professional and personal goals.
Friday afternoons are dedicated to personal development - read, meet with mentors, listen to Podcasts, jump on YouTube - but there’s one catch: it has to be relevant to your role & we want to hear what you’ve been learning so we can all benefit and grow too.
Personal budgets for books, training courses and conferences for everyone.
Like most companies at the moment, our team is entirely remote, and so is our interview process. You’ll need access to a device for video calls and a good internet connection.
