Why join Arctic Shores?

Anyone on our team would agree that we've created a great place to work. These are just a few of the things that make it so special:

  • A place to belong.

    Our people share our mission – to make hiring fairer, faster and (frankly) better. So you’ll be joining a team that’s as driven as they are supportive. Got a dream to make a difference? You’ll be in good company.

  • A product to believe in.

    Our assessments exist to give candidates of all backgrounds fair, equal access to the opportunities they’re made for. So far, we’ve only helped 2m candidates land exactly where they should be. Help us take it further.

  • A culture of freedom.

    We’re tinkerers and trailblazers, and we don’t all work the same. So we’ll give you the flexibility and autonomy you’re looking for. Plus, an ‘Own Day’ each month to work on the things you’re passionate about.

  • A perk for all seasons.

    25 days annual leave + bank holidays, two mental wellbeing days, workplace pension, season ticket loan… we’re always looking for ways to show our people they’re valued. You’ll be no different.
