Life at Improbable

Make new realities possible.

Meaningful Work. Exceptional People.

Improbable is making new realities possible. These realities will enrich the human experience, underpin superior decisions, provide the foundation for new businesses and create insights into how the universe works. Take a look at some of the technical challenges we’ve worked on together.

Improbable is a place for those who want to achieve extraordinary things and have a meaningful impact on the world. We hire exceptional people and foster a problem-solving culture that focuses on results. Our people are the driving force behind a long term, iterative innovation process, which we believe will shape the next decade in areas as diverse as entertainment, security and physical infrastructure.

We’re an internationally diverse team who care about building transformational technology for the future. We’re growing fast, and are always looking for the best people. Meet some of our people.

 

Our company values

Aim For The Impossible

We must aim for the impossible in order to find out what is possible. We do what others are scared to do and never ask if we can do it, but how we will do it. We are driven to achieve extraordinary things and expect to get there.

Improvement Over Comfort

We are never satisfied with ourselves. We solicit feedback, are curious and constantly seek to learn and understand perspectives. We strive to be amazing at what we do.

Relentless Humility

We become irreplaceable by replacing ourselves. We are prepared to give up our role for someone we believe is better than us - our grand vision means there are no lack of opportunities. We always do what is most important for the business.

Action Over Fear

We learn by doing and delivering real world results. We value action and practical outcomes over unnecessary debate. We are not paralysed by the fear of making or reversing decisions.
