- Athens, GR
- Remote friendly

Please do not apply if you’re not a permanent resident of Athens, Greece. Albeit remote friendly, we advocate for an office-first mentality to help supercharge the growth of our team members and the team as a whole.
Our workplace follows protocols against Covid-19.
We welcome you to join Pixelocracy! A powerful software company changing things across selected industries. We're located at the centre of Athens and we're part of a company group leading some very innovative work.
Culture beats strategy for breakfast. We are first and foremost a team of professionals working together to improve our lives and our industry. We treat every single project as our very own. Our mission is to become the new standard of technological excellence.
Our philosophy to team working is:
Iterations. No need to be perfect but to move quickly with small steps.
Ownership. Responsibility and initiative are spread equally across the team.
Proactiveness. Staying ahead is the first half of success.
Our company is also your personal development platform where you will:
Focus on human skills. Practice independence, empathy and organisation.
Build partnerships. Take ownership, create relationships and foster progress.
Become a leader. Introduce new perspectives and drive the company forward.
As part of your onboarding process in the first 3 months, the team and leadership will thoroughly help, guide and coach you along these pillars.
If you can imagine yourself as a Pixer, you are someone who is self-motivated and self-driven - and you’re ready to place yourself into an environment of continuous improvement and openness, then this position might be for you.
You’ll join the management team and gradually transition from individual milestones, to multiple pipelines, to end-to-end project delivery.
You’ll work on both small scale and large scale projects, organically specialising in project types as you grow.
You’ll focus on analysis, project breakdown, planning, estimations, documenting, coordination, monitoring and quality assurance activities. Gradually you will transition to backlog and budget management as well.
You’ll work under the guidance of a delivery coordinator and/or project manager.
You’ll work closely with team roles from development to design.
You'll manage deadlines and team capacities. You’ll gradually be required to independently manage your time, tasks and yourself as a professional and equal member of the team.
You’ll cultivate ownership and initiative, as you’ll be participating in decision making from the get-go and your feedback will be a necessary part of the team’s discussions.
You’ll cultivate a strong sense of business perspective helping turn projects into successful end results.
At Pixelocracy we don’t care if you are 18 or 65, have academic diplomas or not. But it has to make a really good sense and you need to have the general human skills necessary for this line of work. You might have a natural talent that you developed as a kid in your family business or learnt a great deal as a cake baker; you could be a passionate digital geek with background on business analysis, coding, proposal management or UX; you could be a freelancer or business owner seeking to move onto the next chapter.
Having said that, here are the minimum requirements we believe that matter:
Good ability to research, process, understand, breakdown, correlate or write information fast.
Great organisational abilities as a person. Good abilities transforming simple projects to detailed tasks, plan their execution, coordinate with team members, ensure deadlines or alert for challenges early.
Great verbal OR written communication abilities.
Good empathy with other people. Basic ability understanding business objectives.
Be a digital native. Have at least personal or professional experience with task management software (ex. Jira, Trello, Asana) and cloud collaboration software (ex. Google Drive/Docs).
Have a very strong relationship with digital technologies, on a personal, academic or professional level. You either have a clear educational or professional background with somehow relatable scope OR at least some hands-on experience on project management (ex. specialised trainings, freelancing, family business, previous work, extracurricular commitments, entrepreneurship).
You are very familiar with those words: scope, mission, objective, deadline, timeline, plan, budget, critical path, task, phase, coordination, backlog, pipeline.
Nice to haves
The following (if any applicable) will help map a proper starting point - regardless if you pose strong knowledge or a passing interest.
