About Us

Hello! We are Blink.

Blink is a employee communication app for frontline workers who don’t have corporate email and are disconnected from their organisation. We're inspired by a single idea: a company’s greatest untapped asset is its frontline. All they're missing is better technology. It's been thrilling for us to see this take shape in diverse companies all over the world. 80,000 key workers (and counting) rely on Blink every day.

But – we didn’t get here by ourselves. Our brilliant team drives us forward. We have a board, and a clear sense of purpose, to steer our decision-making. Partnerships with extraordinary global businesses fuel our growth.

We're headquartered in London, with offices in New York and Sydney. And we're growing. Want to join us?

Our mission

Working on the frontline was never going to be easy. But it shouldn't be this hard.

Frontline workers keep society afloat. So why are they still under-resourced? They risk their lives, but don't have access to the basic systems most of us take for granted. A work email. A support network. A voice.

They deserve better. Let's build a world where every single frontline worker benefits from technology. Where their employer protects and invests in them. Where their opinion is valued and their voice is heard.

Our values.

Wear the customer’s shoes.

We love to see our customers win. We’ll overdeliver, bend our own rules, and do everything in our power to make you successful.

Create a better tomorrow.

Frontline workers thrive on community, mutual dialogue, and respect. This inspires everything we do.

Triumph as a team.

We aren't concerned with dazzling as individuals; our strength comes from what we achieve together. We leave our egos at the door.

Always deliver.

We have a bias for action and complement empathy with excellence. We don’t just offer solutions; we make them happen.

Our story so far...

Let's start at the beginning.

It's 2002, and our CEO Sean Nolan has a pain point: timesheets. He hates how they drain his energy and slow him down.

So, he builds a custom one-click tool for his professional services firm. The tool expands to other boring, transactional admin like expense claims. Then it expands some more, to knowledge sharing, appraisals, colleagues' birthdays…

Before long, the tool does much more than save time. The remote-only team begins to feel close. Employee satisfaction and staff retention soar; in nine years, only five people (out of 200) quit. 

Fast forward to 2014. There's still a gap in the market for a sophisticated system that supports non-office workers. Like the timesheet tool, but bigger, better, smarter. Blink is born.

Four years whizz by. Developing the app, making the user experience as frictionless and intuitive as possible. At times it’s a rocky road: five staff members, lots of sleepless nights, ups and downs. 

Blink today.

Then, in 2018, Blink lands its first big client: Stagecoach. This leads to another account, and another. Blink starts to win local awards, and then international ones. We launch new offices in New York and Sydney.

Today, we have hundreds of customers across healthcarelogisticstransportretail and more. Each one of them recognizes the contributions their frontline makes. That makes us proud to work with them.

Our team is lean, focused, and nimble. Despite staying small, we've built an ecosystem that supports enterprises of every size. Each staff member knows our clients – and Blink – inside out. We work closely with our wonderful, vocal user base. In fact, they help us write our product roadmap.

The one-click timesheet tool is a distant memory. But the concept stays the same: cut the parts of work that drag people down. Give them back their time and dignity. Equip them with the information they need to do their job efficiently. Make it easy to love work.
