A bit about Above
We at Above are devoted to breaking down the boundaries between physical and digital solutions with the fusion of hardware, software, applications, and services. We work with the full scale of product and service creation, from strategic concepting all the way through to manufacturing.
One of our core philosophies is that we believe in prototyping early and often by bringing designers and engineers together from the very start of a project. If our designers can understand and make technology decisions, while our engineers can grasp and influence the user experience, then we can truly find a meaningful collaboration that results in actual relevant products.
We work with amazing international brands, local Scandinavian heroes, and a fantastic collection of startups and scaleups. We also have a passion for creating our own products and have a good track record of successful start-up ventures. We’re a team of warm, welcoming, dedicated professionals that love to build cool stuff. In everything we do, we strive for a world-class result and we believe you share that mindset.
