Work with Agiledrop and visit us in one of the gems of Europe

Slovenia’s focus is on education, training and industry driven research to support its offering to high technology and other high added-value sectors such as information and communication technology, pharmaceuticals and life sciences.

European Union Member

Slovenia is a member nation of the European Union, United Nations, and NATO. We use the Euro as our currency and can travel to most of the countries without VISAs.

Western culture, global reach

Slovenians are not only global in the political sense, but we also live by western culture. That includes our values, principles, ethics and how we communicate.

Hard (and smart) working

The Slovenian workforce has a high reputation for a flair for technology and innovation thanks to a successful combination of a long industrial tradition and high quality formal schooling.

Very high English proficiency

The vast majority of Slovenians are multilingual. We speak English with a near native-level proficiency, as is also evidenced by our 9th place listing on the 2018 EF English Proficiency Index with “Very High Proficiency”.

This means we’re able to clearly and efficiently conduct all of our business communications in English, truly making us feel like part of any English-speaking team.

High graduation rate & growth of IT studies

Slovenians are well educated, with almost 79% of the population having enrolled in higher education programs at a 96% graduation rate, which is the highest of all OECD and partner countries. 

Interest in the IT sector has grown significantly in the past years, with several higher education institutions offering IT-oriented programs in addition to the already established universities of Ljubljana and Maribor.

Central European timezone

Slovenia is inside the CET (or CEST) timezone - the same as most of the leading European countries, such as Germany and France, and with just a one-hour difference with the United Kingdom.

Even with the Eastern shore of the US, there’s only a six-hour difference, so we can still schedule regular meetings with clients and keep each other updated at all times. 

Great flight connections

There are direct flights from our capital Ljubljana to most of the major European cities. And these are all short flights - it takes less than an hour to Vienna and a mere two hours to London, for example, which makes us really well connected.

According to the OECD Better Life Index, safety, work-life balance, community and health are the qualities most cherished by those living in Slovenia. Most Slovenians claim to be satisfied with their lives.
