work at norrsken


One might think that we are a large and complex organization. But we’re actually quite a small team. We make every hour count, and we optimize for impact.

Every single one of us plays an important role in delivering on the Norrsken mission: We help entrepreneurs solve the world's greatest challenges.


We all have 80,000 hours to spend on our careers. That’s 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year, for 40 years. That’s an immense amount of time.

This means that your career shouldn't just be a major driver of happiness and fulfilment — it’s probably also your biggest opportunity to positively impact the world around you. So how can you best spend these hours?

We believe that one of the most impactful choices we can make in our lives is dedicating part of our careers to solving some of the most pressing challenges of our time.

Impact is not something that you receive, impact is something you create. Norrsken enables you to use your drive and your dedication to make a difference. 

We wish we were clever enough to have made this stuff up, but we didn’t. Do you want to learn more about the 80’000 hour theory?  Click here!

Our values are co-created and influenced by the entire Norrsken team. For us, values are not just shiny words on a wall, they give us an identity and provide clarity on what behaviors we encourage.

These values guide us to make the right decisions - decisions that are in line with who we are and what we stand for. They help us build trust, not only within the team but across the entire Norrsken ecosystem. We use them to enable a climate where innovation and creativity thrive under constraint.

who we are

A job at Norrsken is more like working at a startup than at a non-profit. It’s a fast-paced and exciting place to work. Tasks and challenges may be demanding, responsibilities may change over time, but we guarantee that in return we will fast-forward your personal and professional development.

Ten years from now, you will be proud of the projects and ideas you have developed and acted on together with us, leaving a positive footprint and legacy behind. We are a diverse team from varied backgrounds and experiences, creating an environment where difference of opinion and ideas are deeply rooted in our DNA.

Being a part of Norrsken will make you feel like you are part of something bigger than yourself, and that you are in the driver seat for positive change.
