"We are Icebreakers. It’s who we are, who we hire, who we attract as customers and how we work together."

Our values

To us Icebreaker is more than just a company in the business sense; it is the company we keep. At Icebreaker, we attract people who want to make a difference, who share common beliefs and who, like us, have the courage to go their own way. We care about each other and believe deeply in what we are doing. We’re hard working, passionate and very human.

We are passionate achievers who work hard and play hard.
