BEAUTIFUL OSLO

Fjords, Northern lights, and midnight sun are reasons for many to travel in Norway. The spectacular nature is diverse, with forest-covered hills in the southeast and sublime fjords and glaciers in the west and the North. Outdoor life is a fundamental part of Norwegian culture. In summer, hiking from cabin to cabin is popular, as is skiing in the wintertime. Most cities are located near popular protected outdoor areas. From most places, an hour’s walk from the city center is all it takes to reach semi-wilderness.

Oslo is the economic and governmental center of Norway. The city is also a hub for Norwegian trade, banking, industry, and shipping. Among other things, Oslo is known for The?Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony, which is held every year in the City Hall, and the Frogner Park, the world’s largest sculpture park, with over 212 sculptures?made by a single artist. Oslo is a pilot city of the Council of Europe and the European Commission intercultural cities program.

Oslo sits on the country’s southern coast at the head of the Oslofjord. It’s known for its green spaces and museums. Many of these are on the Bygd?y Peninsula, including the waterside Norwegian Maritime Museum and the Viking Ship Museum, with Viking ships from the 9th century. Holmenkollbakken is a ski-jumping hill with panoramic views of the fjord. It also has a ski museum.

Throughout their history, Norwegians have always identified with rural culture, which can be seen in its traditional costumes and folk music that are still celebrated today. May 17 is Constitution Day, Norway's holiday celebrating its nationhood. On this day, Norwegians participate in parades with bands, unions, civic and volunteer groups, schools, and performers.

LIVING AND WORKING IN NORWAY

Openness, work-life balance, and equal rights are important values in Norwegian society. The egalitarian values at the root of the welfare state manifest themselves throughout Norwegian society in many ways. Systematic efforts are made to ensure that women and men are equal when it comes to education and wages.

The Norwegian lifestyle is strongly connected to the time spent on studies and work. Norway takes pride in having innovative workplaces; flat-structure organizations, a competent workforce, and egalitarian values.

In addition to working in a safe and attractive job market with low unemployment and a progressive and modern working environment, employees also gain access to a number of benefits, including parental leave, sickness benefits and employment protection.

In Norway it is generally accepted to be personal at work. Informality is widespread in Norwegian society. Formal titles and social position normally do not mean that a person should be addressed any differently than the man on the street.

Funcom has a team and family-oriented culture and working at Funcom means that you will be working in a dynamic, inclusive, and challenging work environment, in a position which you can greatly influence.

Funcom Oslo offers flexible schedules, work and leisure insurance, relocation assistance, pension plan, healthcare package, social Fridays, free access to gym, and a long list of other benefits. At the office, there is a library with console games, board games, comics, and books for the employees to borrow. Even more: working at Funcom means being part of a family, with skilled and professional colleagues that share a passion for games.
