Meltwater was founded in Oslo, in 2001. As the legend goes, the company started with only two men, a coffee machine, and $15,000 in startup capital. Our original address was located in Oslo, where the team borrowed hardware, working tirelessly on what would evolve into the all-in-one communications platform we know today.
Our footprint began to grow in the early 2000s, as the company’s operations began expanding throughout Scandinavia, then the United Kingdom, and, eventually, Europe, the United States and Asia-Pacific. By 2008, we had offices on every continent globally, delivering local support backed up by international experience.
Since then, we had not only built our physical presence, but also continuously focused on the evolution of our platform. Today, with 27,000 global clients, we are proud to be the market leader in media intelligence offering the world’s largest database of social data. We also offer media relations solutions with an exhaustive journalist database, a social media management platform, where you can manage all your social media in one place, consumer insights and influencer marketing.
For almost 20 years, Meltwater has maintained a very unique culture based on a foundation and belief in people and the potential they possess, regardless of experience. Our motto? When you have the right people in the right working environment, great things happen. There are 2,200 members of the Meltwater family residing in 55 offices across 25 countries around the world. No matter what office you’re in, you’ll be surrounded by the best colleagues you’ve ever had.
So, in a nutshell, that's Meltwater. We love working here, and we think you will too.
