Company Description

Who we are.

We are revolutionizing how brands and consumers interact. Since 2008, our passionate team of designers, engineers, and developers have rapidly grown ZIVELO into a global force behind engagement tech. How? For those who have fed off the sprint, they’ll tell you it’s because ZIVELO is unmatched in expertise, quality and philosophy.

We ideate and architect experiences for our client’s customers, through interactive kiosks, signage and software.

Job Description


Okay, this is a big one. ZIVELO is forging new paths in the industry. Traditional companies within “public computing” focus on an aspect of the supply-chain (hardware only, installation services only, or perhaps just a vertical app for hotel check-in or whatever it is), but ZIVELO is different. We are the only company approaching the industry with a horizontal approach to make our solutions turn-key and simple for what will be a $16BN industry in a handful of years. We have the only purpose-built operating system for kiosks with a full developer tool kit that takes ideas from concept to reality (a.k.a. working app) in days versus months. Ultimately, the vision is to have the first App Store for public computing that addresses the real needs of key verticals: Restaurants, Retail, Public Venues, Financial Services, Hospitality, and more.

No, we don’t have Marvel’s super-powered Inhumans hiding somewhere in the company, though that would be insanely cool. Our inhuman resources aren’t covered in spandex, but they’re just as flashy: ZIVELO’s cutting-edge software business has been forging new paths in the industry for years, and we’re leading the pack for a reason. As Software Business Lead, you would be supreme overlord of all these – the hi-tech software, the code monkeys, the user experience imagineers – and it is your job to make sure they all work together well. It’s gonna be fun.
