WORK THE NORDIC WAY

Work the Nordic Way

We can’t fit the whole of New York into tiny Norway - our original home - so we’re bringing Norway to New York. That means we work differently. Coming from a country certified as the happiest in the world, we know that how we treat each other and how we work together matters. We believe that more trust + more autonomy + more humanity = more success. We also believe that a diverse team is a strong team, which is why we're committed to improving diversity at Unacast.

And yeah, sure, we have amazing benefits. But you’re not here for the vacation time or stocked fridge, right? Good! Neither are we. One really good reason to be here, however, is the extremely smart, kind and talented team already at Unacast.
