Design at Sanity

Design at Sanity is about exploring and inventing a new medium with new sets of challenges and exciting opportunities. For us design is a negotiation of often contradicting concerns such as user needs, technological possibilities, business needs and aesthetics. The value of design is in navigating and finding inspiring possibilities within the constraints of the situation.

We believe in being pragmatic, working iteratively and collaboratively, testing early and often, and combining just enough research with extensive domain knowledge, invention and craftsmanship. We’re a small team in the process of defining and developing a design culture. Your perspectives and approaches will be central in shaping that culture.

What we can offer:

  • You will be a part of a highly skilled, inspiring, and supportive team, and work in an environment that encourages long term personal growth.
  • The position is open in both our offices, so you can either be based out of the infamous SF Bay area, or based out of one of Europe’s fastest growing cities (Oslo) ticking all the boxes when it comes to arts, night life, family friendliness, and the great outdoors. From time to time, you will also have the opportunity to work from our other office, either SF or Oslo.
  • Paid parental leave, healthcare, and Nordic vacations.
  • A healthy work-life balance. A balance in life is important to us, and we strive to accommodate flexible work hours that allow for having a healthy work-life balance and family.
  • Competitive salary and stock options.
