A Cast of individuals

We believe in open minds, open discussions, and open source. And we value and celebrate the diversity of our people. Every day, we’re building an even more inclusive workplace.

Aiven is somewhere you’ll be able to come out of your shell and be your best, true self.


Think Sideways to move the world forward

At Aiven we have big plans: to be the world’s leading cloud data platform. To make that happen, we need more sideways thinkers to join our Cast of Crabs.

The work we do at Aiven can be anything but straightforward, so we must be bold and innovative. For us, it’s not necessarily what you think that matters. It’s how you think.

If you like to find more lateral or unusual ways to solve problems, maybe you could #ThinkSideways and take big steps forward. Just like our mascot, Crabby!
