Swept, a Halifax company gaining attention across the continent, headlines our Job of the Week column with an opening for a Software Quality Engineer.
Founded by CEO Michael Brown and CTO Matt Cooper, Swept has developed software that helps cleaning companies perform their duties with greater efficiency. The company realizes that janitors often work at night, and some tasks are difficult to explain. That means there are challenges getting messages between clients and the cleaners. So it provides a mobile solution that improves communication between cleaning companies, their cleaners, and their clients.
The company is now going through the 500 Startups accelerator in Silicon Valley.
The Jobs of the Week column features openings posted on the Entrevestor Job Board, which focuses on jobs in technology, innovation and startups in Atlantic Canada. The Entrevestor Job Board helps match job openings and candidates in the tech and start-up communities and is operated by Entrevestor and Alongside.
