How We Work
  • It’s important to us to do things the right way and produce high quality code. We’re also big proponents of and contributors to the open source community. We work in small multi-skilled teams using scrum or kanban – always aiming to be as agile as we can.
  • We have a flat structure where everyone is valued for their own areas of expertise and interest. Our developers speak directly with our clients on a regular basis so everyone’s in the loop and feels part of one team.
  • Currently a team of 25, our work environment is relaxed but professional, with small teams and supportive team members. In terms of career progression, there’s always an opportunity to skill up in areas of particular interest, as well as taking on more responsibility, mentoring newer members of the team, and growing your skillset in whichever ways you choose! We have funds available for training, development and conferences.

  • We understand the importance of taking care of yourself, and we have a company mental health policy that we review regularly. We recently introduced a completely equal parental leave policy that applies to both men and women, however they’ve come to be parents.
  • We’re owned and run by the founders who set up the business 12 years ago, and we’ve created a culture where team members tend to stick around.

  • Based just 30 seconds from the train station in central Bath, we’re a big part of the local tech community and sponsor lots of local organisations and events, including TechSPARK, Bath Digital Festival and TEDxBath. We also like to share our love of tech with schools and students to encourage the next generation of coders, male and female, from all backgrounds.
