Pexip has an engineering-centric culture with an uncompromising focus on software quality; we use CI and test automation, and have a quality assurance ethos that we are immensely proud of!
We are looking for talented developers to join our growing engineering team, working on our core Python-based management applications.
Successful candidates will be self-motivated and have a strong desire to make a positive contribution to our core products, while upholding our shared commitment to maintaining high quality through good engineering practices.
Role and Responsibilities:
Your day-to-day work will be focused towards coding but all team members are encouraged to contribute to improving the quality of the overall platform and to come up with new ideas.
At Pexip we believe that developers should do what they are best at and motivated for. There is a good chance that your day-to-day responsibilities will change based on your preferences and motivation.
Pexip is an international company and we work across borders with colleagues in other locations when needed. You will cooperate with a team of passionate people where new ideas are highly appreciated.
What does it mean to be a part of Pexip?
Working as an engineer in Pexip means working with cutting edge technology, as a decision maker, and a product owner. We pride ourselves on a fluid team structure where we try to ensure that each member is working on what they find meaningful. As a software engineer in Pexip, it is up to you, alongside your team, to prioritise which tasks, features, and what comes next.
We don’t believe in micro management and very much live by the flat company structure, so managers are there to enable you, act as funnels for information that will help you make the right decisions and give you the tools to do so in the best possible way.
Testing is a core pillar of our internal structure, and we spend a lot of time making sure that our code lives up to our own internal standards. This means that each engineer is responsible for writing and maintaining tests for the code that they are developing, with help and support from our dedicated test automation team.
At Pexip we are looking for people who are curious, eager to take their code and the technologies around it to the next level, who are not afraid to speak their mind, all while maintaining a while working in an environment where a healthy work/life balance comes first.

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
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 600 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.
Pexip has main development centres in Oslo, Norway and Reading, UK, along with a rapidly growing number of offices around the world.
