Live & Work in Oslo

Alexandra_OBR1
Startups and scaleups in Oslo are craving skilled workers within disciplines such as tech & IT, product and business development. They offer global talent the opportunity to build their careers and have a good life in Oslo. The city is well-known for great work-life balance, proximity to nature, a booming food scene, culture and museums, and benefits such as parental leave.
“ I’ve lived in several big cities. This is the only place I know where you get all the benefits of being in a capital city while having beautiful nature basically on your doorstep.” ”
– Alexandra Diem, ultracyclist and machine learning consultant. Relocated to Oslo from Germany.

The blue and the green, and the city in-between
Oslo offers clean air & car-free city centre. Our skiing slopes are only a tube ride away and you can visit the many small islands in the fjord on Sundays. Just as important: Norway offers one of the best public health care systems in the world and free education. For women (and men) the opportunity to have a career and a family is one of the benefits you might appreciate. It's not only family and nature - the food and culture scene offers something for everyone.
