What we do

Technology for good

Life is short. We believe work should be meaningful, inspiring, and fun.

Technology for challenging contexts

Technology must be fit for purpose. We solve challenges creatively and build powerful solutions for complex problems.

What is working at Simprints like?

We don’t have time for “boring”. Instead, we’re building a team of the most passionate, adventurous, and creative people imaginable and giving them the space to take on global challenges.

Context is key

6 Reasons our tech is unique

Cutting-edge tech alone doesn't cut it. To reach the most vulnerable populations in the harshest environments, solutions need to be built for context and appropriate for purpose.

Building scalable tech
With a lean team, we build software and hardware that can easily reach millions of people worldwide.
Remaining agile
Our targets are insanely ambitious. We stay agile, enabling our team to own what we build, iterate, and deploy.
Pushing the limit
We take modern tools and apply them, where appropriate, to developing-world contexts.
Learning from the best
We cultivate deep relationships in and around "Silicon Fen", the heart of science and tech in the UK.
Solving end-to-end
Hardware, software, business, operations, we do it all. Join us and experience the full stack.
Leveraging tech for good
We're a technology nonprofit, not a nonprofit with an IT department. Tech is what we do.

We want you

6 Reasons to work for Simprints

Among many, here are a few teasers. Do we have your attention?

Clear impact

Behind the diverse backgrounds, interests, and perspectives our team brings to work, we hold a shared purpose. We believe that every person counts—no matter the place or circumstances they were born into. So we fight to improve global development through better tools, better technology, and better systems. It’s incredibly challenging, but real lives are on the line. Join us, and do work that really matters.

Learn like it’s your job

Because at Simprints, it is. Self-directed learning objectives, external mentors, and regular one-on-one feedback keep continual learning at the heart of our talent strategy. And we put our money where our mouth is: all team members have an unlimited budget to spend on any courses, trips, or projects that power professional (and personal!) development. Join us, and you will grow faster than at almost any other job.

Accelerated career growth

Simprints provides opportunities to expand and grow within the organisation. As a rapidly-scaling nonprofit, we need our team members to proactively take on new roles and responsibilities as they arise. Are you eager to contribute to our strategy in tech, business, operations, and beyond? Are you looking to lead a team of your own? We're the right place for you.

Work flexible hours

Hate pointless rules and bucreaucracy? Want the freedom to work autonomously? At Simprints we don't dictate hours, and this is no 9-to-5 job. We work incredibly hard, and trust each other to be responsible with how, where, and when. In the end, we care about quality results. Join a fast-paced "scrum" culture with unlimited paid time off and no fixed hours. Throw in a wellness budget to cover your self-care needs, and you can build the work day that works for you.

Unlimited paid time off

We set ambitious quarterly targets, and then let you and your team decide how to achieve them. That's it. No deducting hours at the dentist from a limited PTO allotment, no bending over backwards to maximise time spent with family and friends—at Simprints, we're (mostly) responsible adults. We trust you to know when and how to recharge.

Fieldwork around the world

We work on the frontlines of international development. With a growing global network of partners, our work takes us from the dusty savannahs of Zambia to the narrow slums of Dhaka, or the pristine beaches of Zanzibar to the political corridors of Washington D.C. No assignment or trip is ever quite the same. And we make sure that every role—from software engineer to strategic partnerships lead—gets a chance to travel with the team and see our impact in person.

DEI at Simprints

Simprints is an equal opportunity employer. We pride ourselves in our strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in our workplace. Our aim is to attract, hire, grow and retain the most qualified candidates regardless of race, gender, disability, religion, nationality, age, or sexuality. To this end, our DEI task force works towards making Simprints a more inclusive, equitable and diverse workplace for all.

How to join the team

Sharp and passionate?
We're looking for you

We also very occasionally consider unsolicited applications for other roles. Our selection process includes technical tests, remote and in-person interviews, and ‘trial days’ spent with your potential future team (don't worry, we're nice people).
