To create products that change the world, you need to have high exposure. And to achieve it, you need to work with the best. Since Magycal’s foundation that we’ve been working with the best that sports and television has to offer, as they push us to deliver products that change people’s lives.

Daily Meal Allowance

In Portugal every employee has the right to receive a daily meal allowance. But we go over the top paying you 60% more so that you can maintain a healthy and balanced nutrition.

Informal and Fun Environment

Picture a workplace where: people have fun at work, go lunch together, play PS4, no dress code is required, weekly discussions of sports and TV events start the day, among others. Have we already mentioned that once in a while we record an amusing web series of our work and that the clients love it?

Conferences and Workshops

Like Albert Einstein once said, when you stop learning, you start dying. And an excellent way of learning, is to attend conferences and workshops, whether they are remote or in-situ. We encourage collaborators to suggest new events to attend, and we help them to cover their expenses when attending those events.

Board Game Nights

Everybody likes to play, so when possible we organize board game marathons so we can sit back and relax together! We have a few favorite games, but we love to try new ones, so feel free to bring yours!

We organise frequent out of the office activities for the team like informal lunches, thematic dinners, escape rooms, sport events, gym classes, and outdoor events, among others. And we are always open to new and exciting suggestions!

Location

Magycal’s headquarters location was carefully selected. Our offices are located at Madan Parque, an award-winning Science Park located next to NOVA School of Science and Technology, a leading university. We can easily reach Central Lisbon in 15 minutes and the famous sunny Costa da Caparica (Lisbon South Bay) beaches are only 5 minutes away from our office! That means you can have lunch in the sun, do some surfing, swim in the ocean, or just relax and enjoy the breathtaking views. Moreover, our office is located within the future “Portuguese Silicon Valley”, a huge development project that has just been announced.
