We have a data analytics platform and worker wearables, which means we can tell you how happy and productive the people are who make your products.

Factories, Workers, Brands and Consumers can access information in real-time. Our cloud-database sits at the centre, allowing us to collect, analyse and share data from global supply chains. We have bespoke apps, wearables and digital labels. Imagine a world where anyone can access the story behind the products they use every day.

We sell our technology to factories in China, and brands pay to access the data about their suppliers. We’ve raised investment from strategic partners in the UK and USA. We’re at a beta stage with one of the UK’s largest retailers. As our business grows we’re looking to grow our team too.

  • Helping to set up our China office. You’ll be based in Qianhai, Shenzhen.
  • Grow and lead the China team, which will include factory account managers.
  • Streamlining our own supply model. We have an ‘plug and play’ which means our hardware is delivered to a factory so they can set up their workers and start collecting data as quickly as possible. We need to streamline the supply of hardware to our factory customers, to prepare for scalability to 1000s of factories.
