    Interim Instructional Designer

    ** Daily rate contract opportunity **
    ** Flexible working (Full-time Or Part-time) - Circa 3-6 months **

    Would you like an instructional design project in a fast-growing SaaS startup that is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry by empowering factory workers and saving paper at the same time? Want to design great factory worker instructions for some of the biggest manufacturers in the world?

    Working with our Founders, Sales, and well..the whole of Swipeguide, you will take ownership of our preparing instructions in collaboration with our sales and customer success team. Your mission? Support the sales and customer success team by wowing our future and current customers with well designed SwipeGuides. One of our core values is #saveresourcesforbetteruse but currently, we are spending too much time creating demo instructions, when an expert like you could do it much quicker!


    We are Swipeguide. We are on a mission to reduce waste, spare resources for better use, and save the world from useless paper instructions. Imagine working on a busy production line, and you have to rely upon outdated, inadequate work instructions. PDF and paper instructions are a thing of the past, so we're developing simple, intuitive cloud software to empower factory teams to perform better in their jobs and scale knowledge with digital standard work. Our Swipeguide platform enables global companies like Coca-Cola, Heineken, and PepsiCo to build and share visual step-by-step digital work instructions with their workforce on any device. And yes, it also feels good to enable them to use less paper and save the trees! We all know that a digital future is unavoidable, and we're providing the software essential for digital transformation. And it's working. We started with five people in 2016; today, after €5mn funding in March 2021, we have twenty-five full-time employees, 100,000+ platform users in 89 countries worldwide, and an inclusive, continuously improving culture.


    • We have recently become a hybrid-remote organization. There is an office in Amsterdam, and one coming in Minneapolis, Minnesota and many of us work fully remote.
    • You'll soon meet the road cyclist, the yoga lover, the guy with an oyster business, the ex-chef, the person to count on in an emergency, the social butterfly, the DJ trainee, the volleyball player, and someone who owns hundreds of sneakers;
    • We like to fail (it's how we learn), and in our PowWow, we share our f*** ups (failures) and learn together;
    • Our values are at the heart of everything we do; we strive to enable Swipees to develop their potential and showcase their authentic selves and engage in a culture of inclusion


    You will work closely with Mark (Sales Director US), Ingrid (Customer Success Specialist in Amsterdam) and Daan (Founder/CPO).

    Your daily adventures could include:

    • Building new technical documentation for machinery & Interactive/Intelligent work instructions, Standard Operating Procedures and other technical documentation for our manufacturing enterprise customers and end-users (factory workers);
    • Critical operating processes for these enterprises requires you to be putting learning components within the workflow;
    • Assessing existing materials for knowledge structuring recommendations;
    • Highlighting risks to project deliveries to stakeholders.


    • Will ideally have some experience within instructional design or technical writing (ideally with some experience with creating actionable work instructions)
    • Must be fluent within spoken and written English
    • Have a keen eye for detail
    • Brilliant communication skills (for us, this means that you feel comfortable to say "no" and manage stakeholders, ask the right questions, but also truly listen to our customers and smoothly collaborate internally;
    • Excellent problem-solving ability with an analytical mindset and an eye for detail;
    • Able to work independently and make decisions and manage priorities in a fast-paced startup environment;
    • Fast learner with a growth mindset.


    • Remote working opportunities AND/OR Amsterdam office (Or Minneapolis Office);
    • Competitive daily rate
    • A challenging environment to develop your personal and professional skills with a lot of freedom to take on ownership;
    • You'll be in a fortunate situation to make a high impact at a startup that is about to lift off after €5mn funding;
    • A chance to learn from other people's mistakes - we share and celebrate failures on Thursday.


    "I love the atmosphere of collaboration. It really feels like everyone here cares about our product and genuinely wants it to grow and succeed. That's a healthy kind of place to work." - Chris Content Marketer.

    "SwipeGuide gives me hands-on experience in how to build a company from scratch alongside really passionate people. The gap between who I am and who I wanna be as a professional gets smaller every day here, and that's what defines a good workplace for me". - Ingrid (Customer Success Specialist)

    SwipeGuide is committed to creating a diverse environment influenced by a lifetime of individual experiences. We hire people from all walks of life, not just because it's the right thing to do, but also because when people from diverse backgrounds build a company, the understanding and embracing of their communities grow exponentially. This means our creative and strategic horizons are not only expanding, but they're consistently strengthening, thanks to a global perspective. Therefore, we make a constant effort to follow the right practices and processes so that we do not discriminate based on education, race, religion, color, national origin, genetics, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
