Founded in Oslo in 2001 before moving our headquarters to San Francisco in 2006, Meltwater is the global leader in media intelligence, with over 1,100 employees globally and 24,000 clients. Our innovative products help businesses extract insights from billions of online conversations and articles – we call it Outside Insight.

Rare Culture

For over a decade, Meltwater has maintained a very rare culture, based on a foundation and belief in people and the potential they possess, regardless of experience. Like many entrepreneurially focused companies, Meltwater employees embody the work-hard, play-hard spirit. Whether you meet an employee from Sydney, or Hong Kong, you will likely discover many similarities in terms of their achievements, focus and superior communication skills.

Our office spaces are collaborative, open working environments in which team work, learning and fun are the day-to-day norms. Each office consists of a number of small teams, ensuring that all of our employees have easy and frequent exposure to their managers and can quickly learn from those around them.
