    Who are Blink?

    We're an engineering, technology led company, solving real pain points for people.

    Current workplace technology isn't designed for frontline workers, but we change that. We’re developing a ground-breaking product with social purpose at its core: a custom-made tool that helps key workers stay productive, informed and engaged. We’re also providing frontline leaders with a data-driven, birds-eye view of their workforce.

    In 2020, we raised €9.2m Series A, we tripled our number of employees and opened offices in New York and Sydney. In 2021, we’ll triple our team size again, flesh out those international teams, and raise another funding round.


    Why Blink?

    If you're looking for a place where you can have an impact and build genuinely useful technology at scale, then Blink could be the right place for you.

    We’re growing fast, transitioning from a startup to a household name. There will be room for you to make your mark on our DNA, as you work alongside some of the brightest minds in your field.

    You will contribute to projects with global impact, solving real problems that add real value to the lives of real people. We will trust you to take your role in the direction you dream of, with the support of a range of opportunities for personal development and accelerated learning.

    We’re backed by leading international investors, and trusted by UK frontline giants like Stagecoach, the Prison Service and the NHS.


    Let's chat!

    We're down to earth, we speak our minds, we share knowledge, we work together, we trust each other. We work hard and we get stuff done. We're looking for like-minded people to join our team.
