OpenMarket – Why Work With Us?



Every one of our employees is different. But everyone here has a few things in common. OpenMarket people are…

– Super-smart
– Easy to get along with
– Comfortable with their inner geek
– And entirely ego-free

All that adds up to a working environment where we can do great work and have fun doing it. Plus, it’s an atmosphere where we trust each other and we’re empowered to make a difference – come up with new ideas, own those ideas and see them through.



Alexis and Emma

Value People

We recruit and develope individuals who contribute to our sucess.

We recognize people based on their contribution and commitment.

We create a fun and stimulating environment where people enjoy working.

Be Authentic

We foster positive working relationships by acting sincerely and honestly.

We encourage open communication and respect each other.

We seek to resolve conflicts by understanding different perspectives. 

Take Ownership

We take pride in OpenMarket by being responsible and accountable for our actions.

We are curious and ask questions.

We have a bias for action with calculated risk.

We create an inclusive environment where everyone contributes.

We manage and adapt to change, learning quickly from our mistakes.

We collaborate to succeed.

Marketing, Product and Sales

Adoption of SMS by businesses is spiralling – and there’s lots more industry innovation in the pipeline. Marketers have huge opportunities to make their names with us.

Managing the direction of our products and services is crucial – analyzing our market and customer needs shapes the future of our business. Think of it as running your own mini-business within OpenMarket.

And of course, we need a sales team that understands both empathy and how to collaborate – you’ll be at the forefront of solving your client’s customer-engagement problems.

Handling more than a billion messages a month is no small feat. Our engineers solve complex problems on a global scale every day, working with an industry-leading tech stack in an agile environment. If that sounds good to you (and you feel at home in a Java shop), get in touch.

 

We're relaxed and flexible

Being chained to your desk late into the night might work for some companies, but we’re not one of them.

And we like to keep things casual – we’re a suit-and-tie free zone.

Getting the work-life balance right is incredibly important to us. That means we trust our people to do great work – exactly when they do it is up to them.


We have fun

Work is a whole lot better when you get along with the people you’re working with. All our offices have different ways of encouraging the OpenMarket community spirit.

Whether it’s sailing trips, going to the theatre, video or board game nights, or simply heading to a bar or restaurant, we like to get together and be social.

It’s more fun that way.
