Our team needs you. Remember ClipArt in Microsoft Office? We decided it needed an upgrade, so we've replaced it with a more modern approach (and images!), and are now the no.1 Office add-in worldwide. So, if you want to shape what kind of visuals millions of working professionals around the globe use in their PowerPoint presentations and Word documents, Pickit is for you. And while you're at it, you get to live a great life on our beautiful island, Gotland, just off the coast of Sweden.

The Company

We're a 5-year old award-winning startup now part-owned by Microsoft, and we're on a mission to save the world from boring presentations, unlicensed images, and DAM systems people don’t use. Join the company now during its early days, and you can grow together with our organization.

  • Pickit is currently the most-installed add-in in the Microsoft Office ecosystem, beating 25,000+ other apps.
  • There are 1.2 billion Office users worldwide who are potential Pickit users.
  • We believe in fixing the broken image market by providing a legal alternative to unlicensed images on search engines.
  • We also want to enhance people’s work and ideas by helping them create stunning presentations in less time.

The Location

Pickit HQ is in Visby, Gotland, a beautiful island just off the coast of Sweden. Our other office is in Seattle, WA., USA. Gotland is one of Sweden’s most popular summer destinations. Beautiful beaches, a rich history, and a welcoming climate. Gotland is usually one of the sunniest places in Sweden, which doesn’t say a whole lot, to be honest. However, our tech startup lives in an upcoming area for entrepreneurs, enjoying the quality of life of picturesque Visby. On top of that, you'll have the opportunity to travel to art and tech hotspots around the world.

Why should you apply?

With your help, Pickit can be the sixth unicorn to come out of Sweden. You will help change the way people all over the world use images at work. We operate internationally but follow Swedish law and Sweden's progressive work culture. Growing with Pickit's current small team of 20 employees + 5 consultants will give you great opportunities to be part of the core team as we take over the world.
