We are proud to be an independent and bootstrapped tech company in the Software-as-a-service industry with more than a decade of experience in the Social Media space.
Having always been led by CEOs with a tech background - which is rare to find- we jumped on the Social Media Marketing space shuttle as early as 2009 when Facebook opened its first API.
As a company, we are driven by two strong passions: tech and social media.
Being down to earth and still reaching for the stars are not mutually exclusive. This recipe enabled Swat.io to become a trusted partner and software of choice for many social media enthusiasts: frontrunners and rookies, masters and pioneers, big brands and champions. Our customers include well-known brands like ARD, Burda, ÖBB, Raiffeisen, Red Bull Media House, and ZDF.
Our greatest value, however, lies with our people! We feel privileged to have a special mix of game-changers on board, including both experienced tech veterans from the very early days of the industry and fresh minds who joined us on our journey.
THE CHOICES WE EMBRACE
What drives us:
When asked about our mission we simply share our core motivation:
- we empower people to connect in digital communities
- we strive to build a remarkable product that meets the highest standards of quality and deliver outstanding customer service
We favour a quantity over quality approach in everything we do. This often involves atypical choices in today’s often short-termist business environment but as an independent company, we enjoy the freedom to make these choices for the benefit of our coworkers and customers.
Here are some examples:
- Product excellence: we define ourselves as a product-led company and hence focus on building a product that users actually love. Revenue follows quality - not the other way around.
- Less is more: We purposefully grow our team organically and purposefully, at a pace which preserves quality and company culture. We leave rushed, unsustainable growth to others.
- Challenges are crucial for our growth: whether we seek challenges or they appear naturally, everyone at Swat.io embraces them. Our collective mindset is very dedicated and passionate about achieving our common goals and growing individually.
OUR CORE VALUES Our 7 core values represent our fundamental principles of action and collaboration with each other. These short yet meaningful guiding principles are the baseline for every action and interaction here at Swat.io and facilitate decision making on a daily basis for every individual.
