Huddly is hiring!
We’re looking for the next generation of engineers and designers to help us bring groundbreaking Vision products to the world.
If you’re an ambitious, talented team player who wants to work with exciting technology, we’d love to hear from you. You can go to www.huddly.com/careers to see what positions are available and get in touch.
Become part of the Huddly journey
Huddly was founded in Oslo in 2013 by an engineer and a designer with a big dream: to combine hardware, software and AI to bring radically new video experiences to the world.
We’ve come a long way since then. In October 2017 we announced a partnership with Google and are now launching our first product, Huddly GO – a compact, sleek, ultra-wide angle collaboration camera that is software-upgradable with insanely awesome new features.
Built from the ground up
Alan Key famously said “people who are really serious about software should make their own hardware”. And that’s exactly what we did – we built our hardware and software from scratch thanks to an amazing team working across multiple disciplines to turn the vision of our founders a reality. And this is just the beginning…
We’ve come a long way and, as of today the team now stands at 45 people. GO has now launched and we have partnerships with industry leaders like Google, NEC, Bluejeans, Avocor and Zoom amongst many others.
The most exciting fields of Computer Science
We believe that the fields of computer vision and machine learning are seeing the most exciting developments in computer science for decades. Huddly is in the middle of all of it. Our CTO Casey King says “it’s an exciting time to be an engineer” and we would agree with him. He also says “it takes crazy people to make cameras” and, well, we’d agree with him on that too.
At Huddly, we like our people a little bit quirky. We like to say that there is more to Huddly products than first meets the eye and the same goes for our team. Amongst our number we count professional musicians and athletes; multi-linguists, authors, longboard enthusiasts and even bee-keepers. We believe that diversity is strength and all of our different backgrounds and experiences give us a broader perspective on what our customers need and help us make our products that little bit different.
New Engineering and Designing Positions
Huddly needs to keep making bold moves and smart decisions. We need to experiment with user experiences and technologies on our path into defining the future. And to achieve this we need to expand our team with even more brilliant people.
That’s why we are hiring new people to join our engineering and design teams and opening the hiring doors now.
What do we look for in applicants?
We recently sat down with our CEO Jonas Rinde to talk about all things Huddly and asked him to tell us a little about what qualities Huddly look for in someone who wants to join the team. Here’s what he had to say:
“Firstly, I’d say I’m always very humbled that people have heard of us and are interested in joining the team. It makes me feel proud that people are coming to us now, because in the early phase we worked hard to find the right people but I think that, these days we are in a bit of a luxury position in that we have amazing people from all over the world wanting to join us.”
Hire for attitude, train for skills
“What we look for in newcomers is primarily their social antenna. I used to work for a fantastic company here in Norway called Tandberg and we always used the old classic phrase “hire for attitude and train for skills”. You might have heard it before but it’s still true and it’s central to how we hire.
“I’d say Huddly is still a pretty small company. As of today we are only 45 employees, so the attitude of the people who join us is really important. The interview process is based around that we do a lot of interviews for every new person who applies.”
We’re looking for team players
“If you’re looking to join us in Huddly you will most likely be interviewed by all the people who are part of the team you will end up working with. It can easily be 10 interviews in a day for an applicant. It sounds like a lot, I know, but I think it serves a very important purpose. The interviewee has the chance to get to know us and ask themselves if we are the right fit for them, and the Huddly team gets to ask the same question from our end.”
“That goes back to the importance of social skills and attitude – what matters most is if they can work well with the team. After that, we look at whether or not they have the right skill set for the job.”
