Who We Are

We believe that we can radically change the world of work. We hear from our customers every day that when an organization understands itself better it can create more fulfilling jobs, and grow in ways never before imagined.

Enterprises big and small trust our products to provide visibility and clarity in areas once characterized by hearsay and uncertainty. With the insights delivered by Peakon, these organizations become more agile, responsive, and able to make the changes and investments that their employees care about most.

We’re in the business of creating great places to work, so it should be no surprise that this is our highest priority at Peakon. With ambitions as big as ours, we see individual growth and development as the key strategy for growing our business.

Trust and transparency guide everything we do here. You’ll find an open salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends...

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a truly global company, cross-functional (and transatlanic) collaboration is essential on a daily basis—whether that’s working with a US-based AD to strategize an account expansion or setting up a customer feedback call with our Copenhagen-based Product team.


Enterprise Customer Success Manager

How does your team reward individual success?
