About

Today, about 1 in 6 jobs is in the manufacturing sector, but a vast majority of factories provide outdated tools (paper, whiteboard, spoken voice) to the shop floor. This leads to low operational efficiency and low workforce engagement.

Our mission is to empower and engage this workforce across Europe and the world. We aim to bridge the technological divides and contribute to industrial relocalization. We are building fabriq, an intuitive, shopfloor-ready app to:

  • Save time and solve operational issues faster 🏃‍♀️
  • Collaborate on complex issues 🤝
  • Build and use an operational knowledge base 📚
  • Track performance and detect issues early 📊

Fabriq was launched in 2019 by two seasoned entrepreneurs, Octave Lapeyronie and François Déchelette. It is generating very good traction on its market and is currently live on 50+ production sites in 9 countries. A seed round was raised early 2020 to accelerate growth.

Job Description

The Product team you'll be joining

We are team that firmly believes in flat organization and does not believe in handoffs.

Every contributor in the team, from designer to engineer, has a voice in our product roadmap, writes code and conducts user interviews. In practice, it means that every contributor to a feature has the end user in mind and approaches deliveries holistically.

Expect a dynamic, distributed work environment with high levels of autonomy and "full stack" deliveries. Currently, the team is composed of 2 full-stack Product Engineers and 1 full-stack Product Designer (the CEO). Additionally, we have been working for 2 years with the same contract partner to help us with a number of engineering deliveries.

Our mission is to build a first-class solution for our users and deliver value with:

  • Benchmark UX/UI – building a product that our users love and cannot live without.
  • Data intelligence – providing our customers with unique, data-driven insights to help improve their operations and empower their teams.

While we have made tremendous strides in our first 2 years of existence, there is so much left to be done. You will be joining us at an exciting time with many "blank page" projects left to take on.

Our current stack is Django/Python, PostgreSQL, and Vue.js.

We prototype and build UIs directly in real front-end code. We believe that using Sketch or Figma to build high-fidelity wireframes, only to reproduce them in code, is too inefficient and leads to fragmentation in the team. This is why designers and engineers share the same medium: code.
