We are

At the core of the community that runs Slush lies our full-time team. We come in all shapes and sizes, but are united by our relentless curiosity, entrepreneurial drive, and ambition to create meaningful change. If it sounds like you might enjoy working alongside us, check out our open positions or send an open application.

Our values

A strong desire to know or learn something new

We ask questions emphatically, give candid feedback often to help each other grow, and enthusiastically share what we’ve read and learned. We love people who are insanely passionate or obsessed about something.


The ability to do something that frightens one

When setting goals, we ask ourselves “are we thinking too small?”. We talk about our challenges openly and aim to solve them together. We openly admit failures and share what we learned from them.

Trust by default
Do what’s best for Slush

We give and express trust from day one. We are careful to do only what’s best for Slush, and expect the same of our peers. We avoid unnecessary hierarchies and believe decisions should be made by the team member with the most domain expertise of the topic.


The quality or state of not thinking you are better than other people

We look to give back relentlessly to help the surrounding community. We remind ourselves that it is always Day 1 at Slush – past success is no guarantee of a bright future. We share our learnings openly because helping and creating founders is not a zero-sum game.



Long-term thinking
The ability to think long-term in everything

By optimizing for the long term in our decision-making, we aim to leave Slush and the world in a better shape than we got it. We don’t want to be in a position where we have won the battle but lost the war. For instance, our personal health always trumps the concepts we execute.
