25+ Years of Building Opera
We’re building the best teams, to build an audience of dedicated users, by building the best online experiences.
We built Opera by bringing together exceptional international teams of developers, coders, researchers, marketeers and support, who are all compelled to build the best online experience on any device, and to build an audience of empowered, enthralled users worldwide. We’re leveraging 25 years of blood, sweat, and product releases at the forefront of building browsers for more than 380 million engaged users.
Today we’re building audiences across Europe, Africa and Asia with new products, including web browsers for laptop and mobile, interactive AI-driven news platforms, and fintech applications. We’re just scratching the surface of what’s possible, as more and more people go online to support and shape their lives. Few are better placed than the teams at Opera to help build this future. We’re building new products, new markets, and new audiences.
Building a way of working
We work quickly, we have to, to keep up with the tools that people want and need online. We’re agile, because we often have to change direction and shift focus. Because we’re quick and agile we need to make sure people are communicative, clear and brilliantly collaborative. We always have to challenge what has gone before, what is conventional, what has become the norm, because that’s where innovation is. And last but not least, we have to understand and empathize with our users. They need to be at the center of everything we do.
Opera people are ambitious, for themselves, their teammates and Opera. We are comfortable in a place that changes... almost daily! We are happy when we’re empowered to get on with things. People are judged on their contribution, not when or how they did it. We know that working fast means messing up occasionally but we’re good with that, because we succeed more than we fail. We keep an independent mind, so we don’t try to be right all the time and we don’t go with the flow, we think... hard... and share the thinking! We LOVE being part of a team, it’s not lip service. Finally, we try really hard to be good human beings.
