About 50skills

50skills is transforming employee onboarding.

It is used by thousands of managers in high-turnover industries ranging from retail, hospitality, ready-made-food, tech and transportation to reduce the timeframe between onboarding and employees actively fulfilling their roles.

It accomplishes this by centralizing employee data, eliminating repetitive data entry tasks across multiple systems, and integrating with the tools and services employers already use.

50skills is a young company in the first stages of growth, and we are looking for the right person to become an integral part of the team.

We want to have our workplace as diverse as possible and sincerely encourage all genders and ethnicities to apply.

Our offices are located at Gróska, Reykjavik, Iceland.
