Black Swan creates better outcomes through technology and the power of prediction.
Our products transform the way brands create value from data, finding insights and solutions that create an advantage for their business. We analyse consumer behaviour using public and private data, then build cutting edge technology based on predictive models to create better outcomes - we call this “Applied Prediction”.
Bringing together a passionate and talented team that combine skills in software engineering, data science, design, product innovation and marketing, we thrive on change, innovating across social intelligence and big data. Launched in 2011, today Black Swan employs 200 people worldwide across offices in the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Hungary and South Africa. We work with some of the world’s leading consumer-focused brands including Vodafone, Pepsico, Disney, Panasonic, Tesco, GSK and WPP.
Our work is getting us noticed – this year, we were shortlisted for a Data IQ Talent and have been named Britain’s fastest start up by The Sunday Times ranked #1 in their inaugural ‘Start Up Track 15’.
Welcome to the Mobile App Development team at Black Swan .....
Variety is the spice of life here - one day you can be working on a startup project and the next on a project with over 1.1 million active monthly users (that is 99.9% crash free – not that we like to boast!). But if that’s not how you work, we are happy for you to take ownership of a project too! We work in an agency but it’s not all working at top speed, we also work smart! We use GIT flow, we love Jenkins and our code has high unit test coverage. Nothing is getting into a build without a pull request!
Yes, we are geeks and we like a chat about coding, but we also enjoy the gym, video games, movies, tv series / boxsets and a beer on a Friday night...
