Our rapidly growing team is on a mission to inspire and connect people through travel. In the last 4 years we have welcomed over 2 million users who added steps in 180+ countries. Our app was featured in Apple's WWDC keynote speeches and Google created this amazing short video about us. Surely, this puts a huge smile on our face, but our adventure has only just begun!
The world has changed significantly in the past weeks, and we are all seeing and feeling the impact of COVID-19. We want to wish everyone the best at this weird and stressful time and give you a quick update on things at Polarsteps HQ...
As a company, we are amongst the lucky ones – despite the (hopefully temporary) slow down in the world of travel, we are in a stable position and, therefore, able to continue with our growth strategy. We are very grateful for this – not only because we can stay on our previously planned path but also because we can bring opportunities to those who may now unexpectedly need them.
Of course, like many others, we are still adjusting to the new remote working environment, and this now includes hiring remotely. This isn’t ideal (we much prefer meeting potential Polarsteps family in person!), but we are making the best of things and finding new and innovative ways to show you what we are like (and for you to do the same).
We will continue to share behind the scenes updates and hope that in this way you’ll be able to get a better understanding of our awesome team and, possibly, what your next work adventure could look like.

Every day, our talented and multi-faceted team is working on creating the best travel app in the world. From the historical center of Amsterdam we're building the place to go to for people that want to plan, track and remember their adventures around the globe.
You know, perks... the cool stuff. Here is a list of things we have to offer. And yes, that free flight to a random location you've been hearing about, it's true. Try it out and give our Teleporter a spin here.
We are on a very exciting adventure together, every now and then we have to remind ourselves and each other to enjoy the journey. Check out this video of our Hackathon in Greece last year, where we worked on a new feature and chilled with the team!
