Isn’t it time you did something for yourself?
We think so, too. That’s why we want you to come Be Your Own CEO at Unacast.

At Unacast, we believe that democratizing access to data is the currency of innovation. That's why we’re building the Real World Graph® to provide a contextualized, transparent understanding of the real world. It’s literally uncharted territory, which means you have to be friendly with difficulty, risk, failure and also success. 

Big, scary words? Sure. 

This is a big, scary journey. And one we believe is worth taking. Want to come along?



We’re hiring! We are now looking for a Cloud Operations Engineer to join our Oslo office.

The position
We are hiring a Cloud Operations Engineer to strengthen and focus our efforts on Google Cloud Platform, assisting and working for our Product Teams.
As a Cloud Operations Engineer at Unacast you will be working together with our Product Teams, helping us to further improve our commitment to running scalable, well designed, and cost effective solutions on Google Cloud Platform.
You will be embedded in many of our teams, and function as a in-house specialist on the technologies we use, and your focus will be on making the teams as efficient as possible while also contributing on key components. The position will report directly to our VP of Engineering.

Our teams are cross-functional, consisting of data scientists, product managers, sales representatives, and other engineers. Your main hub will be at our spectacular Oslo offices, but you are free to work from anywhere you want as long as you get things done. You’ll also have the opportunity to work out of our NYC offices for periods of time, and you can expect to travel there at least a couple of times every year.

At Unacast we’re utilizing Google’s cutting-edge technology, like BigQuery, DataFlow, Cloud Functions, Kubernetes and AppEngine. Here you will have the opportunity to learn how to use these tools intimately. We use different languages for different tasks, such as Java, Go, and Clojure, or whatever tool or language that gets the job done. You may or may not have experience with these tools and technologies already, but all we ask is that you are interested in learning something new every day.

To us, innovation is the ability to tackle the challenges we don't currently know we have before someone else does it. Of that reason, we acknowledge that we need a diverse team with different background and experience. If you feel that your knowledge can help us get to the next level, we'd love to speak to you.
