Learn about the Vivaldi culture…
This article from last month was posted in the Portuguese category, but it's in English by a Nordic reporter, and it lifts the curtain behind the scenes a little bit to show how us a taste of the Vivaldi corporate culture. Enjoy... http://www.nordicstartupbits.com/2015/07/29/vivaldi-family/
Nice reading. Thank you for pointing it out!
Unfortunately I am confused now. A look at the team's page is giving you the indication of a true 'netted' company with a lot of the developers in Iceland and Norway, one in Finland, marketing representative in Russia, and the business representative in Gloucester (Massachusetts USA). With the CEO on the United States East coast, the COO on the West coast and this article focussing on a location which '… has the aim of allowing startups to easily access one of the hottest tech communities and world leading academic institutions in the US. ...' (that would be the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) the company starts to look like US based. That doesn't bother me at all but it is contradicting to my idea of a Norwegian / Icelandic enterprise.
Well, Jon is who he is. His roots are in Norway and Iceland. The fact that he decided to move to Massachusetts in the USA doesn't change any of that, and his many friends and the majority of developers continue to live and work in Nordic climes.
'Nordic climes' - I like it! If you take a look at this picture http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.1238408.1390338233!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/gallery_1200/winter-new-york-city-1947.jpg
you can imagine, even in New York, Winter to be a real challenge sometimes.
Wow, this makes me want to try working at Vivaldi!
I'm no coder. I don't know a word of code and probably haven't done it since the very basic coding in high school. What are my chances of learning coding, or really any skill a company like Vivaldi would need, and being able to work for them? I love the passion and company culture they seem to have. I hate the strict crappy corporate mediocre world, and want to strive for excellence in a high-achieving, abundant, cooperative world.
And it doesn't have to be coding. I'd love to learn anything important in business as well. Sales/Marketing, HR, Leadership, Operations, etc.
I'd love to be a part of Vivaldi. I'd preferably work in their US location.
