Hybrid position: working 3 days a week from our London office (Monday's, Wednesday's & Thursday's)

80% of the global workforce is a frontline worker; yet their work experience -how they work, how they connect with systems, with others, etc, - is fundamentally disjointed and difficult compared to desk based workers.

Blink’s super-app allows frontline workers to access everything they need and everyone they want in the palm of their hand.

Blink has been named in Sifted’s Top 100 fastest growing companies, G2’s report for best employee engagement software and recognised by Gartner as a leading software provider in their annual market guide for Employee Communications Application.
