Company Description

XY Sense helps make offices more effective for people. If you've ever struggled to find a free meeting room, a place to make a phone call, or even a desk to work at, you'll understand that offices of the world are nowhere near as effective as they should be. Companies spend millions of dollars on their real estate annually, and don't have clear feedback on how well offices work for their people. XY Sense’s cloud utilisation analytics platform, connected together with their groundbreaking AI space utilisation sensors uncovers how to best optimise the workplace.

Working at XY Sense is rewarding - everybody respects each other greatly and each team member makes a massive contribution to the company's success. We are transparent and fair and are working on something that we all find genuinely exciting and interesting. We focus on output and team rather than individuals and 9-5 hours.

XY Sense is backed by Blackbird Ventures, Australia’s most prominent venture capital fund.
