Our company and values

We’re a world-class software engineering firm, so we need the best people in our team who share a desire to build stuff that creates real change for people.

We are builders, makers, creators. We bring new things into the world. The same way as no-one buys pre-built Lego: the joy is in the solving as much as the solution, and if it’s difficult, then so much the better.

We work human-to-human, building software that brings about meaningful changes within businesses and organisations across the UK. Our work brings tangible differences to people's lives, helping them to:

  • Free up time
  • Sell more effectively
  • Improve customer service
  • Improve employee experiences
  • Save lives, through social impact of some kind

We are good citizens and we take care of our people and our planet.

Our values guide all our critical decisions from hiring to project delivery, so before you get in touch with us, check them out to make sure they align with your own.

Competency task

You will be set a task relating to the role you are applying for - this might be remote or in person depending on the nature of the task.

Meet the team and final interview
