Life is short. So we believe work should be awesome, meaningful, and fun.
What we do: building tech that matters
No matter what role you take, from writing code to running field tests, you’re playing a crucial part in improving lives in the poorest parts of the world. Because at Simprints all paths lead to a common goal: building incredible technology to fight disease and global poverty. Your challenge is to help us get there.
What’s it like to work at Simprints?
At Simprints we don’t have time for “boring”. Instead we’re building a team of the most passionate, adventurous, and creative people you can imagine and giving them the space to take on global challenges. This is what going to work means for us.
6 Reasons to work for Simprints
Travel the world
We work on the frontlines of global health. 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 Benin to the political corridors of DC. No assignment, or trip, is ever quite the same. And we make sure that every role—from software engineer to communications lead—gets a chance to travel with the team and see our impact up close.
Freedom and flexibility
We understand that brilliant people hate pointless rules and hierarchy, and want the freedom to do great work—in their own way. This is no 9-5 job. We work incredibly hard, but have a lot of control about where and when. We care about results. Join a fast-paced Scrum culture with unlimited vacation and no fixed hours. Throw in our free gym memberships and you can build the work day that works for you.
Learn like it’s your job
Because here it is. Self-directed learning objectives, external mentors, and regular 360 feedback keeps continual learning at the heart of our talent strategy. And we put our money where our mouth is—with an additional 5% of your annual salary available for any courses, trips, or projects that power your personal and professional development. Join us and you will grow faster and learn more than in nearly any other job.
A lot of tech companies brag about their office. But no-one else we know can boast a 14th century castle, actually the 3rd oldest building in Cambridge. However, don’t let the stone walls fool you. Inside, we’ve built a fully equipped 21st century office with powerful computers, prototyping facilities, 3D printers, and tons of creative space. We’re working with ARM and the Centre for Global Equality to build this into a “Tech4Dev Hub” with regular hack nights and great workshops.
We’re recruiting the best and brightest from around the world. We know “A” players attract “A” players, make it in and you’ll be working alongside colleagues who truly share your drive and ability. And effective ≠ dull. From our legendary “Lego Days” where once a month you can work on ANY tech projects you want—novel sensors, Arduino powered trains, you name it—to offsites and team outings, we love to work hard and play hard. We also know the best sources of Bavarian beer in Cambridge.
Above all, underlying the diverse backgrounds, interests, and perspectives our team brings to their work, we hold a shared purpose. We believe that every person counts—no matter the place or circumstances they were born to. So we’re fighting to improve global health and development through better tools, better technology, and better systems. We’re taking on the biometrics industry to build open-source tools for frontline community health workers. It’s incredibly challenging. But real lives are on the line. Join us, and do work that really matters.
How to join the team
We are looking for smart, passionate people ready for the challenge of a lifetime. We also very occasionally consider unsolicited applications for other roles. Our selection process typically includes technical tests, phone calls, face-to-face interviews, and ‘trial days’. Our goal is to really get to know you, and give you an equal chance to really get to know us. Make it in, and you’ll be part of a team committed to seeing you succeed.
We also respect every applicant’s time. Our team will respond to every application, successful or not, and we aim to get back to 95% of applications within 1 week.
