On a mission to elevate

We care about engineering and we want to improve it by elevating skill level and competency.

Our Story

At Shift Hero, we're more than just a company – we're on a mission.

"Empowering Manufacturing Companies with Skilled Engineers,
Revolutionising the Industry, and Elevating Engineer Careers."

Our journey began with a simple yet profound realisation: engineering is the backbone of progress. It's the force that drives innovation, shapes industries, and transforms societies. And yet, it's often overlooked, undervalued, and underutilised. We saw an opportunity to change that.

Who we are

We are a passionate team of engineers, technologists, and innovators who are dedicated to revolutionising the engineering landscape.

With years of collective experience in various industries, we've seen firsthand the challenges and opportunities that exist within the realm of engineering. We've witnessed the challenges that manufacturing companies face when it comes to hiring engineers who may lack the necessary skills or experience to tackle complex tasks effectively.

Armed with this knowledge and fueled by our shared vision, we set out to create Shift Hero – a platform designed to revolutionise the process from start to finish, empower engineers, elevate their skills, and enhance their impact.

Why it matters to us

Engineering isn't just a profession to us; it's a calling. We believe in the transformative power of engineering to solve some of the world's most pressing challenges, from climate change to healthcare access. But to realise this potential, we recognise the need for a paradigm shift – one that prioritises continuous learning, collaboration, and innovation.

That's why we're committed to providing you with access to a pool of skilled, competent, and compliant engineers precisely when you need them. Say goodbye to unnecessary overhead costs and hello to the best of the best - engineers who are equipped to tackle any challenge and ensure your operations run smoothly and efficiently.

Our vision

Our vision is simple yet ambitious: to create a world where engineering talent is recognised, respected, and rewarded. We believe that by connecting manufacturing companies with top-tier engineering talent and providing engineers with meaningful opportunities to grow and thrive, we can drive innovation, boost productivity, and elevate the entire industry.

Join us on our mission to elevate engineering - one project, one engineer, and one manufacturing company at a time.

Answers to Some of our Most Asked Questions

Shift Hero is a revolutionary platform that connects businesses with highly skilled and experienced maintenance engineers on-demand. Unlike traditional staffing models, Shift Hero offers companies the flexibility to access specialised engineering talent precisely when they need it, without the overhead costs associated with full-time employment. By leveraging Shift Hero, businesses can enhance their operational agility, mitigate downtime risks, and elevate their engineering capabilities to unprecedented heights.

A maintenance engineer is a skilled professional responsible for ensuring the smooth operation and upkeep of machinery, equipment, and facilities within industrial settings. These engineers possess a diverse skill set, encompassing mechanical, electrical, and sometimes even software expertise. Their primary objective is to prevent downtime, minimise disruptions, and optimise the performance of assets through regular inspections, repairs, and preventive maintenance tasks. Maintenance engineers play a crucial role in maximizing operational efficiency, enhancing safety standards, and prolonging the lifespan of critical assets within manufacturing and production environments.

Efficiently Complete Maintenance Work Orders: Shift engineers efficiently manage multiple work orders from different departments to optimize production efforts, promptly addressing issues with malfunctioning machinery to minimize downtime. Accurate Record-Keeping: Throughout their shifts, shift engineers meticulously document their work and maintain a detailed logbook of completed tasks and repairs.

Our elite engineers are renowned for their expertise in various fields, including mechanical, electrical, and software engineering. They excel in troubleshooting complex issues, implementing preventive maintenance strategies, and optimising operational workflows to ensure peak performance and reliability.

We verify all compliance engineers to ensure they hold the relevant and up to date certificates, with regular audits carried out to ensure validity.

There is no fee to use the Shift Hero platform or app. We are currently creating more brilliant features as add-ons which we know you'll love. These are optional add-ons which will not affect the current functionality of the platform. Pricing for additional add-ons may apply.

Shift Hero will invoice you directly for all engineer shifts at your site. Our system logs the time the engineer starts and finishes the shift, so you can rest easy knowing you only pay for the time spent on the job.

We will send out another Shift Hero who matches the skill set required to fulfil the shift, so you won't be left without.
