And at SalesScreen, we don’t just say it. We live it and breathe it. Really, we do. Because if we weren’t truly motivated by our people, we wouldn’t be so successful at motivating yours. Just ask our founder and CEO, Sindre Haaland, what his favorite ice breaker is for new employees and he’ll tell you it’s hugs. Group hugs.
A global gamification platform that keeps modern teams motivated, rewarded and engaged, we’re on a mission to help our clients create the sales atmosphere of their dreams. We know motivation is everything in the sales world. That’s why our solutions combine peer-to-peer competitions with data visualization so CRO’s and managers can keep their teams living and breathing their sales ambition while driving stronger revenue and better delivery of KPIs.
At the audacious age of 13, Sindre was coding assembly language and hacking school systems and his parents’ screens. By 16, he put a bunch of computers in a room with high-speed internet and server applications, and rented them out by the minute. Where there was no opportunity, Sindre created it. So it’s no wonder he turned a college weekend project into his first SaaS product, a corporate messaging tool that laid the groundwork for what quickly became the most comprehensive and effective gamification platform in the game.
Before we became SalesScreen, we were a consultancy business named Dogu. Only a 3rd-year student at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Sindre wanted to start a company with the smartest people in his class before the big firms snatched them up. The rest, as they say, is history.
We launch Dogu, a Norwegian acronym for Data & Development.

We develop our first SaaS platform “Company Messenger”.

Emilie “Emmi” Anderssen
VP People Operations
I love working in SalesScreen because of our unique culture, the high pace and the dedication our employees have. Everyone’s voice is heard and we are able to adapt quickly to whatever the world brings.
We believe it’s not about how much you know, but how much you’re willing to learn. This nothing-can-stop-you-spirit is at our core and motivates us to create the right products that motivate you.
Taking on the titans of our industry demands great courage. Being brave alone is difficult, yet when we’re brave together, we grow, take risks and conquer one of the most competitive markets in the world.
Long days, hard work, unwavering perseverance. It was at our core when we started the company as students. And it’s our backbone today. What’s changed? Now instead of 3 dedicated teammates, we have over 60.
We really feel that great things happen at work when work really makes you feel great. That’s why we strive to create an environment that’s as fun as it is challenging and as silly as it is serious (with just the right amount of sibling rivalry.)
