About Solution Seeker
Solution Seeker is a scaleup that builds software and AI for industrial production optimization, turning data into value and insight for our users. Our software streams live sensor data from production facilities all over the world, which is processed using patented algorithms for identifying stable periods and selecting the most valuable data points for our machine learning models.
On top of this, we build applications that help customers visualize and contextualize their data with our predictions and analyses, enabling them to make decisions for optimizing production. In addition to working with clients, we dedicate a significant portion of our time and resources to machine learning research and active topics, including generative and probabilistic modeling, hybrid modeling (combining physics and ML), data-driven production optimization, and closed-loop identification.
Your responsibilities will include:
Using your creativity to design and develop new microservices from scratch. Exploration is encouraged.
Generalizing and improving already existing microservices, facilitating scalability and/or improved performance.
Establishing connections to, and integrating towards, external data sources and sinks, through various third-party applications.
Refining and improving our CI/CD pipelines.
Facilitating and implementing data-processing algorithms.
Managing services both in cloud and on-premise with orchestration tools such as Kubernetes and Docker Swarm.
Reflecting on architectural and structural decisions in our code base, and voicing your opinion.
You will get the opportunity to work with cutting edge technology, leveraging the latest tools and techniques in combination with your creative self to solve challenging problems. You will get to explore different tasks, and figure out what you find most interesting, which we will use to tailor your workday.
About the Dev Team
As a front-end developer you’ll be joining our Development team, and play a crucial role in turning our vision into reality. Today, our Development team consists of 8 developers; 6 located in Oslo, and 2 in Rio de Janeiro, collaborating seamlessly to develop and maintain our platform. The back-end is primarily written in Python, with runtime-critical algorithms implemented in Rust. The front-end is mainly made up of TypeScript and React.
We pride ourselves in being efficient and flexible problem solvers, taking the eclectic selection of tasks that are thrown at us head on. Our modular architecture enables us to manage separate parts of our system relatively independently, thus allowing us to adhere to a fail-fast strategy, developing and deploying new services quickly. Moreover, our pipelines enable painless rollbacks if the need arises.
Our tasks often revolve around accommodating new needs and requirements both from clients, as well as our own data scientists, or designing creative solutions to unforeseen edge cases, all the while maintaining our generalizability. This offers a good balance between coding-intensive tasks and tasks which require a step back and a more abstract thought process.
In addition to being technically skilled, we are looking for someone who is curious at heart and never backs down from a challenge. You are generous and accountable, always seeking opportunities to include others rather than exclude them. Your playful nature and desire to contribute to the environment make you a valuable team member, understanding that happy programmers lead to happy customers. You thrive in a young and fast-paced environment, where your passion for continuous learning and innovation drives your success. Join us and be part of a team that embraces curiosity, warmth, playfulness, and punchiness as we work together to create groundbreaking solutions and maintain our position as world-leading experts in our field.
What we offer
At Solution Seeker we value well-being highly - both socially and professionally. You will contribute to shaping your own workday, with the possibility of being part of multiple teams at the same time or hand-picking certain tasks you find interesting. As a company with young and outgoing employees, we enjoy small and big social activities like lunch runs, after-work beers, company trips and the annual “bring your friends party”.
We offer flexible work hours and the opportunity to work remotely. Still, most of us prefer our spacious offices in downtown Oslo, and the daily delightful lunch conversations. If you want even more spice in your day-to-day life, it is possible to spend one or more of the cold winter months at our offices (and the beaches) in Rio de Janeiro.
If you think you are a good fit for the position, we look forward to receiving your application!

Would you like to work for a deeptech-scaleup that is bringing AI to different production industries? Are you curious about machine learning and how it can innovate existing workflows? Would you like to build the next generation software for optimizing production?
As Solution Seekers we are obviously open and curious people, always seeking to find the best solutions to the obstacles we take on. Often that means challenging the status-quo, a skill we have honed over the years in a conservative industry. It also means staying true to our vision and niche, in order to be truly world-class in the domains that we have chosen to operate in. But above all else, being a Seeker means being devoted to our team and colleagues, truly backing each other in order to deliver on what we have promised and committed to. All while managing to have lots of fun on the way!
2007Research into optimization of O&G production systems on top of existing simulators. Work was primarily done as part of a large research program at NTNU called the IO Center.
2013Solution Seeker was spun-out of the IO Center to further develop and commercialize the promising findings from the previous research.
2014We obtained our first industrial partners ConocoPhillips and Neptune Energy.
2018Five clients are on board and Solution Seeker technology is getting more and more mature. The company is expanding and getting ready for larger scale commercialization and internationalization.
2019We moved into new, beautiful offices in the center of Oslo, with plenty of space to grow. Client list is expanding and we have landed our first international contracts.
2020The pandemic hits early 2020 and creates huge uncertainty in the market. ProductionCompass AI’s first standalone product module Well Test Optimization is launched and ready for the market.
2021BCG acquires a stake in Solution Seeker. We establish our new office in Rio de Janeiro, with three hires and kick-off of the Mero Digitalization project.
2022We kick-off EU innovation project on Data Mining together with BCG and we expand into the fish farming industry when we join forces with Salmon Evolution on data-driven production optimization with backing from Innovation Norway.
20232023 marks Solution Seeker's 10 year anniversary, which is celebrated with a company trip to Rio de Janeiro for the entire team. Further, we launch our very own research outfit; Solution Seeker Research.
