We’re a bunch of very different, and remarkably kind people.

The unlikeliest creature imaginable. (Yes, that's a pun)

Our company is named after one of the most extraordinary animals on the planet – the platypus. And it’s no coincidence. Did you know that when a (stuffed) platypus was brought to the British Museum in 1799 the director of the museum concluded that it must be an elaborate joke? An egg-laying mammal with a beak!

Truth is, the platypus is simply the best example of the fact that even the unlikeliest of beasts is no joke. It’s just perfectly suited to a very specific environment. We strongly believe that this is also true for everyone who joins an organization. There's no culture that's right for everyone. You need to find the one that suits you. That’s why our mission is to promote more genuine conversations between people and organizations, so everyone can come to work in an environment that’s right for them.

Where it started. How it's going.

Platypus was founded in February 2019 by Nico Blier-Silvestri and Daniel Bowen. They'd both spent years working in HR and recruitment and were frustrated by the lack of objective data for matching people with cultures. Since then we've grown to a team of 24 beautiful beasts. And put an equally beautiful product on the market.

Our company was named after one of the most extraordinary animals on the planet–the platypus. Only in the right environment can the platypus come into existence, develop and thrive. We strongly believe that this also holds true for everyone who is joining a new organization. And so, we set ourselves on the mission to help organizations understand their culture better and make sure every employee, whether current or future, has the opportunity to prosper.

Meet us all

We’re a team of 24 people and 12 nationalities. Our company language is English. We’re based in Denmark but what’s driving us is a mix of everything. Our team's top values are Flexibility, Mission, and Impact. That makes sense, since we’re a startup and building stuff is at the heart of what we do. And we have families, home countries, and interests that are a high priority for us to make room for.
