Meltwater filters business-critical online information for their clients in a volatile, dynamic, and ever-changing media landscape. Each Meltwater solution is tailor-made by employing Artificial Intelligence to better mine and analyze data, tapping journalists and influencers to shape the media space, and monitoring the media for the latest news and trending topics. They’ve established a firm foothold across a range of industries, working with NGOs, DAX30 companies, and even political parties.
Walk into a Meltwater office and you’ll quickly see how much these employees love what they do and who they work with. The dynamic and ambitious team strives to create an impact in all that they do, and with their diverse backgrounds, they bring varying perspectives to the table. With zero tolerance for sharp elbows, successes are celebrated with team building activities, dinners, and parties to have fun together. Working to achieve these successes is no different; the monthly “Closing Day” is built around hitting targets and having fun dressing up to different themes while they hit them.
Rooted in the company’s value of Enere (Norwegian for ‘be your best’), professional growth and development are encouraged. The Meltwater Trainee Program gives fresh graduates huge responsibilities from the get-go - speaking to clients after just three weeks and diving deep into negotiations and analysis. Meltwater takes a full circle approach to their employees’ development; not only do you acquire skills, but you also pass on your knowledge to new trainees and employees. It’s simple: bring your strengths, create impact, and you’ll move up the ladder quickly.
Good leadership and management are inherited and at Meltwater, there’s a strong belief in developing people so that they, in turn, develop others. Directors, HR colleagues, and team members are heavily involved in frequent feedback loops where positive outputs are praised, and areas of improvement are highlighted with new opportunities to implement them. Creating a culture where mistakes are seen as learning moments is no mean feat, but support from C-level executives and team members alike means it’s a journey no one takes alone.
