IF YOU WANT TO BECOME OUR NEW COLLEAGUE, YOU SHOULD KNOW THE FOLLOWING:
WE ARE OPEN AND DAMN HONEST
In Avo we say it as it is. And we dare to talk about the elephant in the room. It is not important to be right, but that we together do the right things. Both internally and with our customers. We believe that through integrity, trust is built. And when trust is there, we can create so much more.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE ARE PEOPLE
We will not be remembered as the consultants who billed, but as the people who delivered. Our customers should not remember that it was Avo who did a good job delivering the robot, but that it was Josef and Lea who did. Professionalism is important, but not at the expense of empathy.
WE LAUGH TOGETHER. A LOT
With us it's fun to be at work. Our customers say WOW - The people from Avo are fun to work with. In an unpretentious culture the laughter is loose and the work morale is good. Win-Win!
WE PROMOTE DIVERSITY AND CARE ABOUT INDIVIDUALITY
We want people to be themselves and believe that this lets us think outside the box. For us it is important that we manage to combine talent with many different backgrounds, ideas and stories. We believe this is what creates the value and makes the whole company more innovative.
We care about our people, about our customers, about society and about those who come after us. We believe in what we do and where we are going. And the goal is to make tomorrow a little better than the previous day.
WE ARE NOT AVERAGE
Delivering what is expected is not enough. The people in Avo have an intrinsic drive to deliver something extraordinary. Something new and something that says DAMN. Everything else is boring.
WE ARE A BIT NERDY
We think it's valuable to be nerd. It gives you distinctive character and means you are curious and easily excited. The fact that you have an impulsive interest in something keeps you up to date and constantly learning. It makes you feel better and better. And more interesting.
WE ARE RESTLESS
Future organizations must think again. Always. That means you have to embrace and push forward. If you are good at the good old ways, we will sail away from you.
WE GROW IN A FAST PACE AND SOMETIMES THE ROAD IS BUMPY
We do not have headquarters in London that tell us how things should be done. We are new players in the game and have to build everything from scratch. Therefore, you may want to ask questions, think new and challenge your own workplace. When something does not work, we adjust and fix it. Every day. Always. With us, the changes are not coming from the top, they come from you.
THE FLEXIBILITY YOU NEED
We know that magic does not necessarily happen at the desk from 8-16. The issues you are working on are often so exciting and challenging that you are unable to stop working on them. Often, the best solutions come when you go for a walk in the evening, or make taco on a Friday. We offer freedom and flexibility to manage your own everyday life. If you want to work a couple of days from Stryn if there are good waves there for a week or from the cabin on a Friday, you do. As long as it's cool for your colleagues and customers. In return, we expect epic shit.
WE LOVE TO PARTY!
To work in Avo, you must like to celebrate. Because we have many victories. Some of these victories we like to celebrate with confetti and a real party.
YOU ARE NOT A ONE-TRICK PONY
Everyone should not be (equally) good at everything. We look for people who excel in technology and also understands business, or those who can do business while understanding technology.
Our culture is probably our most important factor for success. In Avo we don't talk about work-life balance, but rather how we can integrate the two. We believe you should have as fun at work, as you do outside of work. And in addition - you get paid for it.
For us who work here, Avo is more than a workplace. In Avo we are working at the intersection of work and hobby - we call it jobby.
Perks and benefits
Besides working with our all-star team there are lots of benefits working at Avo. Here are some of them:
Stay healthy as a horse.
If you want to run a marathon, go skiing or take a swim, please arrange an event and have others at the office join the team. We cover the cost.
At the office
We like doing things together. That's why we, every Tuesday, eat breakfast together at the office. On Fridays, there are waffle-meetings where there's a new topic of conversation every time. Anything from APIs, who's the better of Alexa or Siri, to the latest news within IoT. In addition to eating waffles every Friday, we later on drink some beers and enjoy ourselves. Also worth mentioning; lunch is subsidized. Not only subsidized, it's high quality as well.
Outside the office.
For us, our jobs are not just jobs. Avo is a family where we have a lot of fun together. We organize regular theme parties, Avo-games, Avo-Tour-of-Houses. We also go for walks, brew beer and discuss movies, politics, and books.
We acknowledge that we spend a lot of time at the office and with our colleagues. That's why we have regular bring-your-better-half-to-work-day so that your loved ones get to meet the ones you talk so kindly about at home.
Stay up to date.
Everyone at Avo gets 1000 NOK a month to spend at the intersection of work and hobby. It's up to you what you wish to spend them on. The possibilities are almost endless. From newspapers, cellphones, to robotic vacuum cleaners, laundry help, and shirt washing. What gives you the most value?
Learn something new.
At Avo, we want you to spend 5-10 % of your time learning something new. How you wish to acquire new knowledge is completely up to you. Within the limits of reasonableness, of course.
In addition to this, we arrange quarterly learning days for the entire company and ongoing training at all levels.
Need for nourishment.
We believe that the body should have what it needs to deliver. If it's hot outside, we buy ice cream. If we work overtime, we buy food. And we use common sense as a principle.
Choose your own equipment.
In order for you to do epic shit, you need good tools. Preferences and needs vary, but who's better suited to find the right ones than yourself? If you're uncertain about what to choose, help isn't far off. To put it mildly, we love gadgets!
Pension and insurance.
We provide you with what you need from insurances and offer travel insurance, occupational injury insurance, and treatment insurance. In addition to this, we have the industry's best health insurance. Working at Avo is so much fun, and maybe you'll want to stay with us until you retire? If so, we offer a 7 % (0-12G) pension plan, which ensures that you'll have fun in life after Avo as well.
We'll help you move.
If you're new to the city, we'll help you settle. If you choose furniture from IKEA, we might even help you read the instructions for use as well.
