These aren’t the droids you’re looking for
Primarily because we’re humans. Anyway. The four founders started grit42 – then called grit systems – back in 2014, after having worked together for a combined 15 years as the internal development department at H. Lundbeck A/S – a danish pharma company.
We launched the company with Lundbeck as the first big customer and a European project called New Drugs for Bad Bugs (ND4BB). Since the inception, we started building our platform and we continue to make it more kickass every day. Now we have version 2.0 out with a lickable user interface.
We take our fun seriously
Fun is important when we work and it’s actually very basic: Who doesn’t thrive while having fun? To us, it’s a mystery why so many companies are run by KPIs and spreadsheets. Who ever thought those were fun? Exactly.
At grit42, you’ll meet people who love anything from Douglas Adams, to kayaks, geeking out, DC/Marvel, mountain-biking, hackathons, football (it’s called football, not soccer), Star Wars, sailing, and judging the best tasting hot dogs in the world. Seriously.
Working at a company like grit42
When we hire someone, we want to bring someone to our team that has a skill-set that we don’t have already. Likely, there’ll be some overlap, but we want you to be an expert, so we don’t have to be.
Our working environment is very casual. We like beer, hate bullshit, and listen to anything from Johnny Cash to Metallica in the office (it’s ok if you prefer Justin Bieber – as long as you use headphones).
If you think this sounds fun, you’re welcome to get in touch!
Oh. And Marvin!
Our support is run by Marvin, our own paranoid android, who’s afflicted with severe depression and boredom, in part because he has a “brain the size of a planet” which he is seldom, if ever, given the chance to use.
If you’d like to see what he’s (not) up to, take a look here.
You think YOU’VE got problems?

Cookies, GDPR, and all that jazz
First of all: We’re just like you – we think all those companies selling your personal data are entirely uncool. That’s why we truly respect your privacy – it’s your data, not ours. So we will not sell or share any kind of data with anyone. At all.
Secondly, while we think all companies should respect your privacy and we think that all the GDPR-hype is the 2018-version of the millenium bug, we know that’s not entirely the case. Also, cookies should be something to be enjoyed with the afternoon tea or a glass of milk. However, that’s also not the case, so pardon the Vogon poetry below.
Only if you choose to actively engage – by contacting us – will we use the data provided by you to identify you on an individual basis. Should you ever wish to know if and what information we might have on you, you’re always more than welcome to get in touch.
