  • Good knowledge of web-based project and task management tools
  • Mastery of Microsoft Excel, Word and Powerpoint

What we offer

Evenflow offers the opportunity to:

  • Enjoy an upbeat, inclusive and comfortable working environment (even when working from home!), in which your ideas are valued and your work-life balance is respected;
  • Support the implementation of exciting, high-tech projects in a wide range of application domains (agriculture, environment, energy, transport, etc.);
  • Develop professionally and enhance your transferable skill-set as well as your thematic expertise;
  • Earn a competitive salary, take on well-defined responsibilities from the outset and shape your future role within the team as the company grows.
