Have you always wanted to work for a company with a real social mission? This is your chance! For almost 20 years, we’ve been developing products to help people live a more fulfilling and complete life. For the past 10 years, our mission has been to empower people with communication difficulties through innovative technology.
Our users are at the heart of what we do. Many of our users are autistic, have cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and/or fine motor, vision or cognitive challenges. We are proud to collaborate with our users to make sure our apps best serve their needs. Our users play a crucial role in who we are.
We are a very motivated bunch. We work hard to create something that not only makes us proud but changes the lives of those who need it. We believe that it is time to further boost the impact of our work. We need to look beyond building products and creating implementation resources. It is time to change what we deliver and how we work and move to service design. This is where you come in!
