Our Culture

Licorne fusée étoile lotus longue vue

AssessFirst's culture is based on a shared vision (allowing everyone - individuals and businesses - to become the best version of themselves), and on maximised individual liberty and responsibility. Each person is encouraged to develop themselves in their role and always take the initiative.

We don't recruit based on CVs. At AssessFirst, we don't care what you did before joining us or which college you went to. What counts for us is who you are, and above all who you want to become.

We regularly organise incredible events that allow us to share unique moments: karting, rafting, wakeboarding, hitchhiking courses from one side of France to the other, social evenings, yoga...

Our offices are based in the 2nd Arrondissement of Paris (France), in the heart of "Silicon Sentier".
