Mobile Jazz and Worldreader
Worldreader is a non-profit organisation with a truly honorable mission, bringing free digital books to families and children in the developing world. It has received tremendous recognition, including support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Mobile Jazz built the Worldreader Mobile app and collaborated with the Google Design team for a fantastic user experience. The app was built with the Android One device in mind, which has much more availability in the developing world.
The Worldreader team are a delight to work with and we’re so proud to be helping them reach their goals.
How Do You Switch Off?
As 99% of mobiles and tablets support email and have apps for everything, it can be tough to switch off after work with emails trickling in and notifications popping up.
We take work/life balance very seriously at Mobile Jazz and we believe a happy team is a productive one. We often take company retreats but we consider that true work/life balance begins at home in day to day life.
