"Working at Polariton means collaborating in a diverse and dynamic environment where you encounter something new every day. I appreciate this atmosphere of constant learning and the flexible alternation between office, laboratory, and cleanroom work. Team spirit is imperative to achieve our goals and we challenge each other daily to adhere to our quality standards and strive for ever higher performance."
"I have worked at Polariton for two years now. And it has been amazing! In Colombia we talk a lot about "Realismo Magico" (magical realism), this is the imagination that our reality is intertwined with magic, colors and beauty. At Polariton I see this magic every day. The flexibility of the company, the naturally kind people I work with and the values of the company that are so close to mine."
