Would you like to join a fast-growing SaaS scaleup and continue development in any direction you are interested in? How about a completely flexible work environment? Our technology is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry by empowering factory workers and helping to save the trees 🌴 at the same time. We are all about helping manufacturing enterprises crowdsource their knowledge from the factory floor with a bottom-up approach. A mantra that also lives strong within SwipeGuide!
Fresh from announcing a further €5 million of funding last year and 58% employee growth in 2021, we are now searching for another Senior Fullstack Engineer (you'd be our 7th member!). Working with Sue our CTO, Deborah our Product Manager, Willemijn our CEO, Vlad and the other devs and well...the whole of Swipeguide, you will be jumping to the deep-end to help manufacturers digitalise their worker instructions! You'll play a key part in an agile development team whilst we continue to scale and you'll help shape and grow the engineering team.
Stack: We need a true full stacker to help us round out the team, DevOps chops = useful! NodeJs, React, React Native, Node.js, GraphQL, Postgresql, Redshift, AWS, Docker, Jenkins, Typescript.
WHO ARE WE?
We are Swipeguide. We are on a mission to reduce waste, spare resources for better use, and save the world from useless paper instructions. Imagine working on a busy production line, and you have to rely upon outdated, inadequate work instructions. PDF and paper instructions are a thing of the past, so we're developing simple, intuitive cloud software to empower factory teams to perform better in their jobs and scale knowledge with digital standard work. Our Swipeguide platform enables global companies like Coca-Cola, Heineken, and PepsiCo to build and share visual step-by-step digital work instructions with their workforce on any device. And yes, it also feels good to enable them to use less paper and save the trees🌳! We all know that a digital future is unavoidable, and we're providing the software essential for digital transformation. And it's working. We started with five people in 2016; today, after €5mn funding in March 2021, we have twenty-five full-time employees, 100,000+ platform users in 89 countries worldwide, and an inclusive, continuously improving culture.
OUR TEAM OF SWIPEES
We have recently become a part-remote organization, but our office is available for Swipees to attend each day too (totally optional). For the future, it's totally up to you: hammock on the beach or face-to-face smiles?
We work in a bustling startup hub B.2 in Amsterdam with 300+ other startups. You'll see the usual ping pong table, foosball, arcade machines, and PS4s everywhere. But, there are also charming places to sit in the sun, break-out areas, and ambitious, inspired people as far as the eye can see (when everyone returns!);
You'll soon meet the road cyclist, the yoga lover, the guy with an oyster business, the ex-chef, the person to count on in an emergency, the social butterfly, the DJ trainee, the volleyball player, and someone who owns hundreds of sneakers
We like to fail (it's how we learn), and in our "SwipeUp" sessions, we share our f*** ups (failures) and learn together
Our values are at the heart of everything we do; we strive to enable Swipees to develop their potential and showcase their authentic selves and engage in a culture of inclusion
