What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Oh boy where do I start! The first and foremost has to be the culture around the office. There is literally not one person you will not get along with.

Also, the entrepreneurial vibe allows anyone to leave their mark on the company, and to try different projects without a fear to fail.
