Did you know that the printing industry is one of the biggest industries on the planet? Nevertheless, it faces a lot of challenges when it comes to collaboration and process digitisation. We are Zaikio and we're currently building a sophisticated software platform for this industry to solve the problem. Our vision is to create a place where all print related processes world-wide run on a centralised industry platform. From designers and publishers to printers and machines to trucks and logistics – it's truly holistic.
Our primary goal is to communicate our messages clearly and concisely. That's why it's important that you can boil down complex technical issues to their essence and put them into words that everyone can understand. All of this should be done in a relaxed and pleasant writing style that reflects our company philosophy to the outside world. And since we are an international company, a confident grasp of the English language is a must.
This position is very important to us, so we are looking for new team members to join us in a permanent position. We can talk about the scope, but we think there is enough to do for a full position.
How do we manage ourselves?
We highly believe in self-organized teams. Usually a team consists of 1 to 4 UX designers, developers and product managers. To get things done, we work in monthly sprints, with the ultimate goal to ship something in the end. This can be a feature, a product or just a part of it.
What we have to offer
Our challenge is a big one: we are tasked with building a platform that will change the face of an entire industry. Forever. We don't solve Silicon Valley-style self-made, first-world problems – we want to fix actual software problems in the printing industry, freeing the people working there from stupid, repetitive, cognitive assembly line work and allow them to rediscover their creativity.
We pay above-average salaries that are linked to your experience and responsibility and grow with you. All based on a simple and fair level-based salary model.
We’re trying hard to provide you with a healthy and family friendly environment. Results matter, not office hours. That’s why we encourage remote work and quality time that you can spend with your loved ones.
Freedom and Opportunities
You will enjoy a great deal of freedom in your work (which can also be a burden). Not gonna lie, we are a small team at this point, which will grow over time (again not explosively, but sustainably), so at first your job will be hands-on, while in the future it can shift more towards project lead and management (if this is your desire). Either way, your work will have an impact on our success!
Apply below and tell us a bit about yourself and the work you’ve done so far. We also expect you to get familiar with our philosophy and tell us how you can enrich our team.
Please give us some time to review your application, we’ll definitely come back to you as soon as possible. After our initial review, we might conduct a short phone interview to get to know you better. Following that, a personal meeting or online conference will be the next step, where we talk about code and product development.
