About Dataswift

Dataswift provides personal data account solutions in the form of app-issued, user-owned infrastructure.

We believe the whole world’s been building apps and websites wrong. We’ve been storing user data and corporate data on the same servers, when we should have been storing user data on the user side. Company-owned user data is expensive and it’s pretty bad. It’s non-dynamic, non-representative, single-source information that costs every website and app in the world 23% of their engineering budget.

The Dataswift API-driven technology platform lets companies give user information back to their users, storing on user-owned infrastructure instead of on their corporate servers. They don’t have to change anything else about their app or technology in order to do this. Dataswift is working with dozens of companies around the world, including some of the largest pharmaceuticals and smallest, fastest-growing FinTechs.

Dataswift Culture & Values

Your impact: Through special projects you will actively shape our growth and the team itself.

Teamwork: We pride ourselves on working around each other’s constraints.

Stable environment: We have just raised seed funding which will take us to the end of 2020 and we have guaranteed commitment from our investors on Series A funding if we successfully reach our goals in the next 12 months.

Growth: Success isn’t inevitable everytime we do something new, so we recognise that allocating 20% of our time for stretch goals is perfectly fine. We believe that it is more important to try and fail than to not try at all, so feel free to set lofty goals.

The team’s favourite benefits:

  • Budget for personal development and training

  • Regular team away days and bonding time

We believe in the diversity of our team and we don’t judge based on gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, history, culture, geography, nationality or your secret aversion to coriander.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. If you feel you don’t match every single specification, reach out to us at [email protected] to discuss your options further.
