Karl Anders Øygard
Karl Anders has been a developer at Opera Software since 1998.
“I was employee number seven, and the reason I’ve stayed since the very beginning is because what we do continues to stay interesting and important. Today, millions are using our products, and we make a huge difference and an important contribution to the development of the Internet. It’s hard not to be enthusiastic about something like that. Working here is an aspiration to greatness.”
Gautam moved to Oslo from India in 2005, and started working at Opera as a developer. Since then he has taken his project manager certification and is now a program manager at Opera.
“It’s awesome. I love what I do! I get to work with new technologies and stuff that no one has ever seen before. Also, my colleagues are not only the most talented people, but also have so much dedication. Here, people put their heart and soul in what they do. And, what’s better, you get the world as your workplace. You can work in any of all our offices worldwide. All you have to do is ask!”
Tatsuki started out as a marketing trainee in Oslo in 2001, and later started up the Tokyo office. He now works out of our Opera USA office in San Mateo.
“Opera is passionate about what — and especially, why — we are doing things. We all share the same vision and know what we want to achieve as a team. Unlike many other companies, Opera is all about empowering the individual and all our users out there. New, creative thinkers are encouraged. When you get an idea you can run with it and carry it through.”
