Thank you for your interest in ShiftKey, in ShiftKey’s engineering department and, in particular, about career opportunities at ShiftKey’s office in Warsaw, Poland. The developers and engineers in ShiftKey’s Warsaw office work hand-in-hand with their US-based colleagues. All team members are highly valued, recognized for their innovative ideas, and work on groundbreaking solutions to important technological challenges.
ShiftKey Has Strong Roots in Poland
ShiftKey co-founder Ralph Marczynski was born in Toruń, Poland. Ralph moved to the US as a child, but grew up speaking Polish at home and maintained strong family ties to the country of his birth.
ShiftKey’s engineering department has been Poland-based since the company’s inception. Under the leadership of Witold Frąckiewicz, who built and continues to manage the growth of ShiftKey’s Polish operations, the Warsaw office has played an instrumental role in our phenomenal growth. And, just like in our US offices, ShiftKey strives to be one of the most coveted workplaces in the market.
Situated in the heart of Warsaw, on the banks of the Vistula river and overlooking the city’s landmark PGE Stadion Narodowy, ShiftKey Warsaw’s bright, modern, Class-A offices feature high-end finishes, a kitchen space, and a fun vibe.
What ShiftKey Does
While ShiftKey is first and foremost a cutting-edge tech company, our market is the healthcare sector. The ShiftKey marketplace facilitates direct connections between fully licensed, verified healthcare professionals and healthcare facilities that need nurses, certified nursing assistants, and other healthcare pros to work on an “as-needed” basis (known as “working PRN,” in healthcare lingo).
As you may have heard, the US healthcare system faces a significant shortage of nurses in the labor market—something made quite a bit worse by the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, it’s not uncommon to find healthcare facilities struggling to fill shifts with headcounts sufficient to satisfy regulatory requirements for the number of patients and residents under the facility’s care.
Previously, healthcare facilities had to rely on traditional staffing agencies to find PRNs—or go the highly tedious and manual route of finding their own PRNs through advertising open positions.
We designed our offerings to speed up the process of filling PRN shifts by leveraging technology to remove the tedium and “friction” of the old-school model.
Now, facility administrators can harness the ShiftKey platform’s powerful tech tools to post open PRN shifts—weeks or months in advance—with a few mouse-clicks. Independent health pros then bid on the shifts they want, via the ShiftKey App for smartphones. Available both for iOS and Android devices, the ShiftKey App tightly integrates with features of the respective operating systems, including mapping, notifications, alerts, and more—in a natural, intuitive, and seamless product.
Judging by ShiftKey’s 800%+ growth in the last six quarters, facilities and healthcare pros alike love using ShiftKey.
