Working at

Fishbrain is a global social network and mobile app for Sport Fishing. And it’s true - Fishbrain can help you catch more and bigger fish. Through a combination of our Catch Map and Fishing Forecast, you can bring your fishing up another notch. Or two, even. But here’s what keeps people coming back to Fishbrain: It’s an angling community. And that gets at our mission. With 200 million people sport fishing around the world, we’re connecting anglers to make fishing dreams come true, today and tomorrow. Some of us are anglers. Some of us are parents. All of us are human. And we're also passionate about the outdoors and conservation. Together, we work to bring you the best app for fishing, hands down. There's a lot of thought and effort and fun that goes into that. Some of us work from Stockholm, Sweden. Some of us work from boats, casting lines and going to fishing tournaments. The office people and the boat people make sure to talk a lot. That's how we keep it real. We believe that it's more fun to brag about a catch with people who care about fishing. These people are often called anglers. You may think that's obvious, being an angler yourself. But on Fishbrain, your catch doesn't go head-to-head with cats doing backflips, or toddlers feeding chocolate cake to their baby sisters. For us, respecting the environment is about balance. We believe in catch & release and the sustainable harvest of fish species. Because when it comes to the outdoors, tomorrow matters too. Don't get us wrong - we're all for hard work, pre-dawn wakeups to get to a fishing spot, and getting our hands dirty. But if there's a smarter way to fish, we're on it. It means we do the hard work of crunching catch numbers so you don't have to. It means all you have to do is fish.  Our office is in Stockholm, Sweden. The office has windows, multiple coffee machines, and a team of amazing people working inside it. It's also cubicle-free. If you're one of the lucky Chosen Ones who gets to fish for us, your office might be an inshore boat in Tampa Bay, Florida. Or a kayak somewhere in South Carolina. Just sayin'. We're looking for talent to join our small team.
