Welcome Pack (received when a new employee comes to the office): a notebook, an additional screen, board, mouse, port adapter and headset. role:PeopleOperations/Welcome proposes to each new employee models of hardware and accessories selected by circle:PeopleOperations according to the budget and technical quality defined.

The service is dedicated just to the employee who can extend the coverage to his/her family paying the amount difference. Check procedures and covered services at

  14. Additional Welfare conversion: possibility to “convert” the net amount of the prizes in services or products purchase with a +30% price enhancement (i.e. it’s possible to purchase a product that costs 130 € with 100 € net prize amount exchange).


Conferences are a great resource to feed the technical growth and to stimulate the desire to try new technologies or to implement new solutions. The comparison with what others do is always positive.

You can attend one international (in Europe) conference per year. The conference must be inherent to the spectrum of technologies and interests of Agile Lab. Agile Lab will pay for:

  • Trasportations
  • Accomodation (max 3 nights)
  • Conference Ticket
  • Food (max 2 days)

The first two days of the conference (most of them are only 2 days) are considered as normal working days, excess days will be considered holidays.

Alternative fruition of conference benefit

For those people who do not want to, or cannot, use their conference benefit, there is the possibility to convert it to time or material for studying.

Extra time to study for certifications

You can decide to use the conference benefit in the form of 5 working days to dedicate to study in preparation for a certification (see Certifications for details about certification benefit).

Buy material to better prepare certifications

Up to 3 days worth of conference bonus can be used to buy books, courses or even annual subscriptions to course providers(coursera, acloudguru, ...) for a total amount of 1000 euro. Thus, a single day is worth 333 euros. Employees are free to use the number of half-days that they want in this way. If the product cost is higher than the value of half-days converted with this process, then the employee will pay the remainder. If the value of converted days is higher than the cost of the purchase then that difference is lost.

In the case of subscriptions, People Operations will make sure that the automatic renewal of the purchased service is not activated.

Smart/Remote Working

In Agile Lab we always try to put people first, we strongly believe in the energy that they release when they are in the best mental and physical conditions possible. We also believe that social relationships and cultural values are important to reach a good work-life balance, and our offices are the best places to enable these values and to introduce new people to the company culture. Don't forget that the junior colleagues can learn from senior ones to build attitudes and behaviors that are important in work but in life too.

This produces value for the people, and people produce value for the company.

Whatever the situation will evolve after the Covid-19 pandemic, Agile Lab will not become a fully remote company but it will let you choose to live the full-remote experience or not. Happy people mean happy company, and the result is what matters to us (as usual).

Everyone can access two different kinds of contracts:

Full Remote

  • You need to communicate formally the domiciles from where you intend to work
  • You can work from all the Agile Lab offices whenever you want but we do not guarantee you'll find an empty desk for you
  • You have to be available for business trips

Smart Working

  • We guarantee you your desk in one of the Agile Lab offices
  • You have to spend at least the 40% of your effective working days from the office in one month (also in August). Long working from home period should be approved by the team leader and by the customers
  • You have to be available for business trips

You can jump from one contract to the other once every 12 months, your compensation won't change.

We strongly suggest waiting until the end of the pandemic to make your choice.


IT certifications are another great way to demonstrate our excellence in a specific field, so employees are encouraged to do them as much as possible. If you follow the process described in the Certifications section, Agile Lab will cover all the costs.

Open Source Contributing

In Agile Lab we want to let people express their potential contributing to world class open source projects. Please check how it works.

Outsourced Technical Trainings

As an alternative opportunity to conferences and certifications, outsourced trainings could be considered good compromises for those who are looking for a more effective (learn-by-doing) approach, but with tool boxes mostly full of I-shaped contents.

You can attend one international outsourced training per year, with limitation to Europe if it will be take place on site. Such training must be inherent to the spectrum of technologies and interests of Agile Lab or related on foundational technical approaches at least.

Same limits on budget/payment/hours management as for Conferences.
