We have been doing this for quite some time now - in cozy and chilly Denmark. Our Danish company is Webgents - also a full service development agency. And although the name no longer implies it we are still very much gentlemen.
Other than the obvious reasons ( weather, beaches and tax ) we moved to the lovely island of Koh Tao for the adventure and to get new cultural input - food is nice too!
JungleCoders wasn't planned - but then again best things in life never are - just ask our moms and dads ;-) Shortly after moving here one of the agencies we worked with in Denmark needed some help, but we were too busy to get nerdy with them at the time. By chance we had just met a local developer who needed the work and thus became JungleCoders.
They got a nice piece of software at a very affordable cost with Danish communication back and forth all the way.
Being nerds far from home
Moving to Thailand is a BIG step and we are not gonna stay forever. Even with Skype and the likes we miss our families and friends too much for that.
But life is good here for now - and our awesome backend nerd Henrik ( Heino ) even lost 50 kilos so far. Thanks to the lack of pizza places who deliver!
JungleCoders however is not a short-term project. We want to keep this company for good and make sure there is always Danish and English speaking developers and managers on site. Thats why we welcome any applications from European and in particular Danish developers, who wants to come here and share this island paradise with us.
Currently we are 16 nerds from all over the world at JungleCoders.
