Meaningful Work. Exceptional People.

Improbable’s mission is to make 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.

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.

 

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.

Locations

San Francisco

Our brand new Bay Area HQ is our first home across the pond! We’re blazing new trails and falling in love with creative, vibrant Silicon Valley.

London

Our London home is situated at the heart of the city, and the heart of the company. We’re very proud to be a British start-up, and our roots in this cosmopolitan city run deep.

Different people
different insights

The best ideas are often the least expected and require new ways of thinking; that’s why our teams at Improbable are made up of an incredible range of talented people. We always look for diverse backgrounds and different perspectives in our teammates, and we’re proud to boast over twenty five different nationalities. Creating progressive technology requires radical individuals; we are committed not only to celebrating diversity of thought and identity, but growing it from the ground up.

Growing Women in Tech

We believe there is a fundamental problem with educating young women on the opportunities available in the tech industry. We actively sponsor and work with organisations like Code First: Girls and ALT: Ambitious Ladies in Tech to promote education and mentorship. These initiatives are critical to the long term diversity success within the tech industry.

Diversity of Thought

We’re committed to taking affirmative action towards diversity and believe strongly in equal opportunity. We make sure our recruitment processes cast a broad net, and consider individuals with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences.

You Will Be Heard!

At Improbable, quality work always finds its way to the limelight. Our culture breeds openness, opinion and ideas so no matter who you are or where you come from, your voice will always be heard and your opportunities to progress are endless.

Well-being, as it should be.

We focus on tangible benefits that make life at Improbable smooth and enjoyable, so our employees can concentrate on what’s important both personally and professionally. World class people deserve the best we can provide, as well as the freedom to make choices tailored to themselves and their loved ones.
