So you’re thinking of joining us? Glad to hear it! We’re really proud of what we’ve built here at Mentimeter. We want to tell you about some of the things we love about working here, and why we think you’ll like it here too.
In 2014, four friends felt frustrated. Everyday they wasted a considerable amount of their day participating in or leading meetings that were inefficient, un-inclusive and just plain boring. Why? Because in the meetings the leader was talking at rather than engaging with the audience. They knew there had to be a better way.
What started as a week-end hack has since grown organically into a truly diverse and inclusive company, with 140+ employees spanning a 54/46 female/male percentage split from 25 different nationalities. Equal opportunity and consideration are afforded to all qualified applicants and employees. Below are just some reasons as to why you should consider joining us.

Extensive insurance coverage, including private healthcare insurance
A computer, phone, phone contract + some cool merch!

We top-up any parental leave to 90%

Join us at our new, state-of-the-art home in the heart of Stockholm! We occupy a 3 floor office where we provide different environments for different work preferences: from a lively social space on the ground floor to a silent area on the third floor for when you need that extra focus, and everything in-between.

Our new head office houses a fully equipped gym with changing facilities, showers, and a relaxation room. As well as a kitchen and bar, fully stocked with snacks and drinks. Some for helping you stay comfortable at work, some to facilitate spontaneous after work drinks! We also have a gaming zone: including a pool table, table tennis, foosball, video games, board games, and more!
Also, when we say include everyone, we really mean it! So feel free to bring your dog to the office with you. They’ll probably have a fellow four-legged friend to play with.
We believe in taking care of new parents, so we offer Parental Leave Top-Up. This entitles you to up to 90% of your annual salary, starting from 1+ year of employment. This benefit applies to both full-time and part-time parental leave.
We believe that diversity makes for a better, more dynamic organization. We also believe in the power of together, so we like to have our teams working together at our head office. Not a resident of Sweden yet? No problem! If you are joining us from abroad we are happy to help you out with the relocation. This can be negotiated on a personal basis.
Here at Mentimeter we relocate our entire organization for one month out of every year. So if you find the idea of spending one month a year experiencing new and exciting surroundings, this might just be the place for you! So far, we’ve been to Lisbon, Barcelona, Palermo and Madrid.
At Mentimeter we take our overall well being very seriously. In addition to doing our best to be a zero-stress workplace, we also provide an annual wellness grant (friskvård) of 5000 SEK (≈500 EUR) that you can spend outside of work. Not sure about how you can use this benefit? For the full list of activities included in the wellness grant, take a look at Skatteverket.se (in Swedish).
We don’t just exercise outside of work. You can also join our weekly Menti Muscle lunch workouts or take part in our Friday morning Yoga sessions.
We want to help our employees grow. So we offer 1-1 access to a Leadership Coach (for professional and personal development), which is open to all full-time Mentimeter employees, no matter what position you’re in. With an individual development budget of 20,000 SEK (≈2000 EUR) per year.
Never have to bring lunch to the office again, with a meal provided 4 days a week (Monday-Thursday). Plus complimentary breakfast every Friday! The perfect antidote to a hard yoga session.
Inclusivity & Mentimeter go hand in hand; therefore, our lunch meals always consist of organic plant-based foods, which we measure the impact of through Klimato. Our kitchen pays great respect to all food tolerances and we cater to all allergy requirements.
One of our core values is balancing what we do, so everyone is encouraged to work no more than 40 hours per week - something our CEO, Johnny, himself follows! Need to pick up the kids? Go to the dentist? Take time out for a workout? No problem! We trust our people to manage their time, so go ahead and book that spinning class.
Here at Mentimeter we are conscious of our collective environmental impact. We work to tackle this by taking an active stand against CO2 emissions, lower ours each year by dragging CO2 from the air into the ground.
In 2020, we bought 72 tons (or $21 600) worth of CO2 reduction from Nordic Direct Air Capture to compensate for the pollution connected to our employees’ work and travel. If you work at Mentimeter, we calculate your yearly carbon footprint both in work and ensure that you have zero impact on the environment.
We want everyone to stay healthy and safe, so we are happy to hold interviews virtually via Zoom or Google Meet during this period. If you would like to visit our office personally for your interview, you can use free Uber and Taxi rides. All employees also have access to unlimited Voi rides so we can get around town without public transport. At the moment, we prioritize working remote-first (including team meetings and company events).
