WiFi is something that is expected, for free, just as we expect access to heat, light and water. But the big question in recent years has been how to monetise WiFi. Purple WiFi has created an innovative low cost solution that gives unprecedented analytics and insights, whilst driving true ROI for businesses. We have seen unimaginable interest and demand for the product, not just within the obvious sectors of retail, leisure and hospitality, but also unexpected sectors such as social housing, education and healthcare, as companies want to use WiFi to communicate better and deliver services.
As a result we’re now entering a new phase of expansion; and with that we have published 11 role types for a total of 32 positions live on our website, many of which can be based anywhere in the world: http://www.purplewifi.net/wireless-careers/
Purple WiFi believe we have a unique offering for our employees, combining the excitement of being involved in a fast-growing start-up business with the stability of a solid financial foundation. Our team is talented, ambitious and resourceful. Purple WiFi is an environment where a positive attitude and an eye for innovation is everything.
We are headquartered in Ashton-U-Lyne, which is just six miles east of Manchester City Centre. Our brand new offices are located in the town’s St Petersfield business district, just minutes from the M60 motorway and local train, tram and bus links. We have also opened international offices in both San Francisco and Shanghai. Due to the global nature of the business we are now looking to expand our staff in the UK and abroad.
We’re going to need bigger Purple Towers!
More about Purple WiFi
Purple WiFi was originally established due to a recognition of the world’s growing need for fast, free public WiFi. The service has been purposefully designed to be user friendly, to be technology ‘agnostic’, cloud based and scalable across geographic boundaries. It meets the growing user demand for fast, secure WiFi enabled spaces, with the added value of giving something back to the company who invested in the WiFi.
Purple WiFi’s social media authentication covers an extensive number of global social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Instagram, with Chinese Weibo and Russian VKontakte coming soon. The login journey and analytics platform auto-translates into 18 languages.
Thousands of venues globally have already been secured, with strongholds in Europe, Asia-pac and the Americas. Deep technology partnerships have already been established with vendors, distribution and key channel partners. A channel organisation, Purple WiFi have distribution agreements with Ingram Micro and Westcon Comstor who are the two biggest in the world, along with a number of country specific ones.
