Why should you join our team?

We build products that make a difference for our customers and solve real societal challenges. We are an effective and small team with a passion for research and development, and we have a solid backing to employ the best talent to work with our advanced technology. At Factiverse, we are finding facts, and your contribution will be significant in this quest.

If you care about solving problems, dreaming, and executing, join us!


What is it we do? 

Our goal is to help B2B decision-makers find the most relevant and credible information to increase impact and revenue. 1 in 2 online news consumers is concerned about whether they can see true or fake online. Misinformation and disinformation cost society 78 billion USD annually, everything from reputation damage to fall in stock prices and people's health.

Factiverse is at the forefront of this crisis. We design, develop and build tools for journalists and analysts. Their requirement for tooling to monitor and navigate the enormous amount of content online, discover controversy, disputed sources, and bias are massive. Today's tools are for users that can automatically fact-check online content or their articles, enrich articles with automated facts, and improve reader engagement.

We use cutting-edge AI and NLP and patented our solution after years of research at the University of Stavanger.

In 2021 we raised funding, built several prototypes, landed the first pilot customer and expanded our team.

In 2022 we are raising a new round of funding and expanding further. It is a critical growth phase, and a lot is happening. We have one unique product that gets a lot of attention, and we need more hands-on-deck to sell it. We also need help to gather customer feedback and contribute to our features' business development. We could use your help!


How do we do it?

In 2021 we raised funding, built several prototypes, landed the first pilot customer, and expanded our team. In 2022 we are raising a new round of funding and expanding further. We have one product primarily for Norwegian media and international, and we are developing an advanced AI-driven prototype.


What do we need?

Now we are looking for a new addition to our team! You are a great communicator and team player, have a head for business development, and genuinely care about users and their needs. We hope that you have senior sales experience. If not senior, show us your track record and references to your previous work!


Who are we looking for?

Here are some other critical criteria

  • You are fluent in English or preferably a native speaker.

  • Ready to fail, learn from it and try again

  • Passionate about bringing more clarity to the world

  • Good at listening and understanding the customer's needs, communicating them to the rest of the team and suggesting new features that can improve our products. We are in a fantastic position - our tech team is solid, so we can genuinely innovate!

  • Work independently on reaching out to customers through calls, emails and events.

  • In the beginning, you will participate in sales meetings with our CEO and Product manager. However, once you learn the product by heart, we would like for you to take on more significant responsibilities and drive the sales process on your own

  • We love structure and initiative - micromanaging is not our favourite way to work together

  • 3-10 years or more experience with sales or business development

  • Excellent communication, teamwork and organisational skills with attention to detail

  • Last but not least - you dream big and execute!
