Who are we?


LeaseWeb is fully staffed with talented people who are working hard to empower you and our customers to reach a greater world. Our organizational structure is quite flat and we value independence and entrepreneurship. When you have a company that is a melting pot of nationalities like ours, it’s not always easy to find a way to get everyone to connect with our spirit of blue and orange. Sometimes simply working together isn’t enough. If you really want to bind a team together, then you need to make sure they have fun together (and that’s something we are taking care of!)

The atmosphere is informal and multicultural (37+ nationalities) and there is a clear focus on innovation.

We are quickly moving towards becoming an agile company which gives our teams a lot of freedom.


Interested to be part of our team? Please don’t hesitate to contact Barbara Poveda (Talent Acquisition Specialist) via or +31 654 23 52 61. We look forward to meeting you!
