At Relate we really are on a mission. We're born out of the purpose to help people connect more deeply and it's very central in everything that we do. We're a group of passionate entrepreneurs who all left well-paying jobs to work for something meaningful that we truly believe in. We're all in this for something bigger than ourselves.
We like to grow. Personally and as a team. For us growth means gaining new perspectives and ways of seeing and understanding. It also means increasing our capability to navigate in complexity and thrive in uncertainty. We have the luxury of having a true personal growth and organizational development professional as a co-founder, who used to coach teams at Spotify and Telia, now dedicated to make us thrive as an organization.
We are also a group of people who believe in kindness, openness, diversity, equality and authenticity. "Embrace your weirdness" is one of our internal principles, and we believe that the most important thing at a place of work (and in life in general) is to be able to feel safe to be yourself fully. We have a very warm and caring culture where it's important that everyone feels heard and seen and onboard. It's also a culture built on trust, self-organization and self-reliance. You will not be measured by the hours you put in, but by your effectiveness and the results you achieve. We expect you to have the self-awareness to know and respond to your own needs and desires. You own your own happiness and motivation at work (and again in life in general), and if something doesn't feel right or is missing, we expect you to speak up. We're in this together.
Relate is a Norrsken House based relationship company building apps and services to help people both find and build more meaningful romantic relationships.
