Commitment builds trust
Courage leads the way
Success through learning
We’re proud to play our part in creating a sustainable world, and a career at NAPA means working with a purpose. We protect the environment and human life at sea by powering safer and greener vessels with our technology.
We believe that working with a meaningful purpose is good for NAPA employees and good for everyone else.
NAPA’s employees have unmatched domain expertise in the fields of naval architecture, shipbuilding, performance analysis, shipping, software development, data analytics, and information technology, to name but a few. We use the latest technologies and processes when developing our solutions for the maritime industry. In addition, we actively contribute to maritime policies and regulations at a global level and drive forward scientific research in their areas of expertise.
We work closely with our customers and frequently travel to wherever they are in the world to work alongside them. We’re looking for people who want to excel professionally as individuals and in teams, constantly push their skills and knowledge forward, and innovate to create solutions for the future.
Enjoy working together
We recognize the importance of creating a happy, comfortable work environment. Primarily we do this by trusting each other. We respect and trust our people to work smartly. We believe in letting our employees decide how to do their jobs in the best possible way. What this looks like is up to you and your colleagues.
At NAPA, you’re part of a family. NAPA encourages its employees to build relationships and have fun outside office hours through various leisure activities for the employees and, at times, their families. In recent years our adventures together have included sailing, flying in a wind tunnel, bouncing on trampolines, tasting champagne, and horse riding.
At NAPA, you’re self-managed. Everyone’s here to help and guide each other, but you’re your own boss. You’re responsible for your own decisions, and doing the most important thing you can in creating a cleaner, safer, maritime industry.
At its heart, our self-management philosophy is founded on trust. We trust that our people are smart enough that if they make a decision, having consulted the right people, it will be good for our company. And if it’s not the right decision on that occasion, that’s fine too. We trust that we’ll make it right, learn from the decision, and grow as a company as a result.
Don’t let this seem daunting. Just as anyone can ask for advice from someone with expertise, those with the expertise must consult. Every decision you make will mean sharing the collective knowledge and expertise of the whole team.

Esa got interested in NAPA because it’s different from most maritime companies – it’s a global software house and NAPA solutions are present everywhere in the ship industry from ship design to operations. He says that due to this fact he learned how the whole ship building process works – a thing you don’t learn just by studying.
“NAPA’s way of working in self-management is a huge asset. There is no management pressure which allows for planning the work as you want to do it. And now, you can even work remotely virtually from anywhere.”
Software Developer Trainee
“NAPA is a good place to start your career from. It’s like a programming hub, where many products and projects are simultaneously ongoing. My colleague once said that the software you are working on/developing is like a baby, which you grow and take care of for it to evolve.
