About Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot's mission

At Sweet Spot, we believe that professional training combined with being abroad empowers professionals to grow – both personally and professionally. That’s why we help companies seize the opportunities in remote work by building full-service, professional experiences where both employee and employer can thrive.



When it comes to work, life, and growth, we think beyond trade-offs. Based in Amsterdam but on the road discovering new Sweet Spots, we’re committed to discovering new ways for professionals to develop and grow.

Why now

COVID-19 has forced a radical shift in what we call the workspace. Two years into the pandemic, we now know that a lot of work can be done beyond the office walls. What’s more, many people seem to be even more productive while working from home.


Around the world, we are starting to understand the opportunities created by remote work. At Sweet Spot, we are seizing on this momentum. We help companies reap the immense benefits of remote work by taking it next-level: an innovative development experience for professionals, where both employee and employer will thrive.


Does your company grow with its people? Want to seize on the momentum of remote working? Let’s find your Sweet Spot!

Why Sweet Spot?


For many years, I have had an amazing work experience in Amsterdam followed by an incredible life experience during a sabbatical in Barcelona. Going forward, I want it both and I want it at the same time. 


From up close I have seen my generation and the next struggle with simultaneously getting most out of their career and their life. The consequences are usually not pretty, neither for the employee nor the employer.


At Sweet Spot we highly believe in development, both professional and personal. Finding a way to create a win-win for employer and employee is a challenge that we are excited to take on. 


Let’s find the Sweet Spot together!

Why Sweet Spot?

My whole adult life I have felt the urge to seek adventure abroad, characterized by being away for months at a time. In the form of assignments abroad and, later on, working fully remote in Latin-America I continued to quench this thirst.

Being abroad has never stood in the way of me getting promotion or making a career. On the contrary. Every time I returned home, I took with me a suitcase full of energy, motivation and personal growth. Making me not only a happier person, but also a better performing employee. 

I wish this experience to every professional, just as I wish every employer the opportunity to create this sweet spot for their employees.

Will you join us on this journey?
