At OpenSignal we've developed award-winning apps to help remove the frustration of bad connections. How do we know where better connections are available? From our millions of real-world users all across the globe! We are using this crowdsourced and independent data to bring transparency to the wireless industry. Mobile signal and Wifi are only the beginning: our next app WeatherSignal leverages a dozen different sensors for weather forecasting and our longer term vision is to harness the next billion sensors.
Our pioneering technology has won the UKTI SmartUK award and our investors include Qualcomm Passion Capital and Tim O'Reilly.
We have a relaxed working environment and an amazing office space to sit, stand or lounge. Our open culture allows you to share your ideas and have an impact from day one. Our work-life flexibility helps you work your hours and from home or abroad. Our exceptionally smart and international team is constantly bouncing ideas off of each other with some great coffee, beer and snacks on the side.

Our Mission is to become the global authority on wireless networks. We are focusing on this with our OpenSignal and WifiMapper apps. However, mobile signal and Wifi are only the beginning. WeatherSignal leverages a dozen different sensors for weather forecasting and our longer term vision is to harness the next billion sensors.
About four years ago, OpenSignal was just an idea that Brendan, James, Sam and Sina, our co-founders, started working on from Buenos Aires, Argentina (None are Argentinian, but if you’re going to set up camp somewhere to start a business, that’s a pretty nice place to do it, right?). They had heard a lot of people complain about bad network signal from their first business (RepeaterStore) and being serial entrepreneurs at heart, they knew they could help. Our founders saw a bright opportunity with the explosion of smartphones and the sensors built in them. They developed the OpenSignal app to collect data that could change our world using these sensors. Check out the app here for iOS and here for Android. You’ll love it as it’ll help remove your frustration with bad connection-we all know it is essential to have 4G and Wifi all the time!
In 2012, after closing a round of investment with three glowing investors, our founders settled in London. In 2013, OpenSignal became an award-winning startup and snatched the prestigious UKTI Smart UK Award for its innovative technology. In 2014, when the team grew in size to the ‘teens’, OpenSignal moved to its first ever office. We’re now at 25, still growing fast and soon moving to a brand new office in Angel .
