About the company

TimeEdit was established in Gothenburg in the mid 90’s by an astrophysicist making a timetabling application from an Excel sheet on crack. Since then, the system has been professionalised and developed further to arguably become the world’s most modern fleet of resource management tools for higher education institutions.

Today, TimeEdit is one of Scandinavia’s fastest growing EdTech companies. On average, our customers spend 20% less on facilities, representing more than 4MEUR (!) in savings per year (yes, we’re pretty proud of that!). Less money spent on empty rooms means more resources allocated to research projects and higher education quality.

We recently celebrated our 150th customer and are growing fast through new exciting applications and a global roll-out. Today, more than half a million students, teachers and schedulers use our products every day (yes, we’re pretty proud about that, too!).

Our office is located at Kungsportsplatsen in the heart of Gothenburg. There’s standing desks, great coffee (according to most), open areas, closed offices and a very BBQ friendly terrace.

Context, not controlIf the team is fully aware of our purpose and how it maps to TimeEdit's current state of business, we believe we can make much better decisions and accomplish far more than through a top-down management model.

Swing for the fencesWe encourage experimentation. Better to try and sometimes fail than to sit tight and… fail for sure. Each mistake carries a lesson, and we make sure to learn from it.

Judgment > PoliciesSocial media policy. Travel policy. Buy a round of beers at an event policy. Work from home policy. Nay. Our policy on these (and most things) consists of three words: Use good judgement.

Work-life fitWe're scaling a company where people can build their work around their life, not the other way around. Flexibility means you're in the driver's seat to create a schedule that works for you, your passions, and the people you love.
