About Cognite and Cogniters
Cognite is a global leader in industrial software with our Industrial DataOps platform, Cognite Data Fusion®, at the core. We were awarded the 2022 Technology Innovation Leader for Global Digital Industrial Platforms. Whilst manual, paper-based ways of working are a thing of the past for most knowledge workers; this outdated and inefficient work experience still haunts workers of traditional industries. With Cognite, our mark on the world will transform how humans and machines see industrial work, individually and collectively. This is why our global People & Organization team is critical in enabling our people and Cognite to achieve our goals and strategies. 

Impact: Cogniters strive to make an impact in all that they do. We are result-oriented, always asking ourselves, “How do I add value to my team, to my company, and to our customers?”
Ownership: Cogniters embrace a culture of ownership. We go beyond our comfort zones to contribute to the greater good, fostering inclusivity and shared responsibility for challenges and successes.
Relentless: Cogniters are relentless in our pursuit of innovation. We are determined and deliberate (never ruthless or reckless), facing challenges head-on and viewing setbacks as opportunities for growth.
