Info about Refined, our people, and our passions | Refined

We're on a mission to help teams collaborate better

Our software turns native Confluence, Jira and Jira Service Desk content into themed, easy-to-use intranets, service desks, issue trackers, knowledge bases and more. Our customers are leading companies like Apple, Spotify, Facebook, Klarna and Coca Cola—plus thousands of small- and medium-size businesses from more than 100 countries around the world.

Get to know us

Refined is a diverse and growing crop of engineers, product managers, marketers, support gurus, customer success stars, and more. Our team hails from all corners of the globe, and our varied interests – we’re talking House DJs, wine connoisseurs, trivia stars, triathletes, politics junkies… we could go on – means dull moments are hard to come by around here.

We’re a curious, creative, ambitious bunch, and we’re passionate about the software we build and the users it serves. We believe that thoughtful design and constant iteration can drive better outcomes for us and for our customers.

We are good corporate citizens. We’re incredibly proud of the gender balance on our tech team, not to mention our pledge to donate 1% of company profits to charities and nonprofits like Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Cool Earth.
When we’re not tinkering with Refined, you’ll find us on the ping-pong table, at afternoon group-stretch sessions, grabbing fika, and having beers on Friday afternoon.

Things we care about

Reine the Rhino.

Refined are proud sponsors of Reine the Rhino who’s future is made brighter thanks to the hard work of Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Ol Pejeta work to protect southern white rhinos in the wild.

The planet.

Refined support Cool Earth, a non-profit organisation working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change. We also invest in Trine, an investment company dedicated to growth of solar energy markets.

The people.

Refined support The Hunger Project. An organization on a mission to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption.

Pledge 1.

Refined are proud members of Pledge1 to give 1% of our profit and 1% of our products to charities and non-profit organizations.

Join our team

We hire ambitious, down-to-earth, solution-oriented people who thrive in collaborative settings. We think empathy and curiosity say as much about a candidate as university credentials, and we weigh ambition as high as we do talent. We believe that the best work happens when people put their heads together without ego or pretense to arrive at clever solutions, so we look for people who have a demonstrated history of getting stuff done in teams. Sound like you?

Working with us means


We believe work should fit into life and not the other way around. We’re flexible about where you work and when so that you have the freedom to take care of your personal life first.


We have a track record of hiring and promoting the most qualified candidates, regardless of factors like nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion, which, if you ask us, have no bearing on one’s ability to do the job.

Our employees grow as we grow. We promote from within, and we’re committed to professional development so you leave us with more knowledge than you came with (but don’t leave us!). We grow day to day by taking risks and learning from our failures as much as we do our successes.


We celebrate our success. Every product release gets a proper celebration at Reine’s—our office bistro—replete with oysters, Champagne (only the good stuff) and other treats. Plus we host tons of other events (totally optional, we get it if those aren’t your thing) like quiz and game nights, ping pong tournaments, theme days, and more.

A damn good office

We’re proud of our office in the center of Malmo. A few of its perks: a barista-grade espresso machine, a fully stocked beer and Champagne fridge, a ping pong table, and a spectacular view of Malmo harbor.
