About Pexip:

Pexip is a rapidly growing videoconferencing company, formed from two successful Norwegian start-ups. One company was founded in a boathouse, one in a loft, however both were established by experienced engineers who had a vision for what the right technology could do for the industry and for society. Ten years later, the world is now more ready than ever to adopt innovative communication tools and Pexip has the platform and the experience to be at the forefront of this revolution.

Pexip provides a unique approach to video communication and collaboration, allowing integration between any device via WebRTC in-browser video or mobile apps, as well as previously incompatible technologies such as in-room video conferencing systems, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet services.

We sell Pexip products either as completely self-hosted software, or as a fully managed service, or a combination of both. Our customers are based all around the world, and are from a wide range of industries. Pexip has grown steadily over the past ten years and following our successful IPO in 2020 we are now investing even more in finding the right people to help us help our customers solve today’s very real collaboration problems.

Today we have over 550 people and are growing fast, but Pexip’s culture means the world to us, which is why we are focused on growing our team in the right way: the Pexip Way.

The Pexip Way builds on a strong foundation of shared values. Our goal is to work together as One Team and we empower our employees with the Freedom and Responsibility to decide for themselves how to deliver on that goal. We believe that we all thrive in an environment that is both Professional and Fun and with No Bullshit - where we are honest and direct with ourselves and our customers.

Pexip is an equal opportunity employer and evaluates applicants on merit and regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, family situation, or veteran status. We embrace diversity and believe it is integral to making Pexip unique, which is why we are so committed to creating a kind, inclusive environment for all employees.
