Who you are

We are looking for a collaborative colleague who enjoys partnering across teams and departments. An ability to coordinate at multiple levels as well as great communication skills are talents that will serve you (and us) very well in this role.

You are a self starter and problem solver who sees possibilities where others see obstacles. If you are also an innovative thinker and open minded about trying new ideas, you will like working at Once Upon!

Working at Once Upon

Our app was created to help people save their favorite moments in an easy and fun way, a little at a time, making everyone’s memories shine. And that’s how we want our workplace to be too – life (and work) at Once Upon should definitely be filled with happiness. Because happiness is the key to success, not the other way around. Right?

We strive for a safe, caring environment that gives everyone space to be their whole self, all the time. If you feel free and have fun at your job, it is easier to feel passion and responsibility for what you do. We always dare to do what we believe in – failing at something is not the opposite of succeeding in the long run. And we always strive to make things better, for our Once Uponers, for our planet and for each other.

Through innovation, co-creation, transparency and our collective knowledge as a team we always aim to bring value to our Once Uponers. And that collective brain grows with every new colleague that we welcome to the team, enriching us with new perspectives, experiences and views on life. If you’re looking for a little more happiness in your life and feel like working at Once Upon would be fun, well, that new colleague might just be you!
