Working With The Best And Brightest


Less Than Acceptance Rate

We think extraordinary people are the lifeblood of an incredible company, so we are obsessively selective and only look for the brightest (and nicest!) talents. Less than of our applicants have become Spooners.

Spooners: Elite And Small By Design

The extreme selectivity of our hiring process is reflected in our world-class, very diverse team: outstanding academic and professional feats while being only years old on average.

  • Full-Mark University Degrees
  • Scholarships Won
  • Former Startup Founders

  • Languages Spoken

  • Countries Lived In

The admission process at Bending Spoons is incredibly demanding, and very few people make it through
