WE’RE HIRING A PROJECT MANAGER

Bornfight consists of 70 young tech believers who are on a mission to turn their motivation and expertise into successful projects for their clients all around the globe. Our philosophy of progress through determination, doing things that are challenging and going down unknown roads has led us to an incredible amount of success throughout the years. With both big and small projects from numerous different industries and countries, we always try to find something new and exciting that will inspire both us and the client, and keep us all ahead of the game.
