We Are Hiring The Twenty

July 2, 2015
Unacast
UPDATE: Check out http://thetwenty.jobs/ for more information on the The Twenty

It’s about growth, and we are growing faster by the day. To keep up with market demand and to make sure we are the biggest proximity network today, tomorrow, and beyond, we are ready for twenty new friends. Friends to join in on our global journey, and friends to… well, to be just friends.

It’s about growth. Unacast started only 11 months ago, and have achieved quite a bit already. Highlights are of course the recent $1,6m funding, the opening of Unacastle in Oslo, NYC, London and San Francisco, featured coverage in everything from Fast Company to Venturebeat and Business Insider, and we have added eight more friends to the team. All while having a good time.

Our mission is of enormous proportions, and not for the faint hearted. The physical world around us is increasingly being populated with proximity sensors to communicate with people and gather data to learn. These sensors are being deployed in the millions, by thousands of different companies with equally many ways of storing data, dealing with privacy and data tagging.

Unacast means "one", and our mission is to be the backend of proximity, by interconnecting all of these companies and technologies to each other. You could call us the veins in the body of IoT. We do.

Unacast is needed. Through our platform we are sending millions of real-time interactions back and forth to power physical and digital communication between brands, retailers and end users. At SXSW we released our first 10 global partnerships, and we will soon be announcing our next 10. We are the world´s largest global proximity network, and our API enable brands and retailers to easily tap into the rapid growing amount of proximity data.

It’s about growth. And it’s about having a good time, as an individual, as a professional, and as a team. That’s why in Unacast we don’t have meeting rooms, we have living rooms. That’s why we don’t count hours at the desk, but rather count our accomplished shared goals. That’s why we give you unlimited vacation and want unlimited dedication. That’s why we want to work with people we can call friends. That’s why we want to work with you.

PS, If you understand Norwegian you can read the story in Aftenposten featuring Unacast, where we talk about the “dream worker” and our definition of the “dream working place”.
