We usually respond within a day

We are now searching for another Freelance / Temporary - Fullstack Engineer. Working with Sue (CTO), Vlad (Tech Lead), the other devs, and the whole of Swipeguide, you will jump to the deep end to help manufacturers digitalise their worker instructions! You'll play a key (temporary) part in an agile development team whilst supporting us on a brand-new build A-Z 🤩

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 Imagine working on a busy production line, and you have to rely upon outdated, inadequate work instructions.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 in manufacturing. And it's working. We had five people in 2016 and today, after €5mn funding in March 2021, we have thirty Swipees, 100,000+ platform users in 89 countries worldwide, and an inclusive, continuously improving culture.
