We offer a friendly, open culture which values intellectual curiosity and the exchange of knowledge. Spontaneous project discussions and morning stand-ups give team members the opportunity to discuss new ideas. With the resources and infrastructure of a large technology firm, we can run experiments at scale.
Our annual Hack Week enables developers to take time out of their normal projects to work on building a prototype of something a bit different.
Throughout the year, there are a variety of informal social events, including Ultimate Frisbee, Cycling Club (with obligatory pub pit stops and BBQs), Wine Tasting, and team get-togethers. Thursday afternoon tea and cake (and occasional pizza) is a popular tradition in our Refectory, along with our hotly-contested charity bake-offs. We hold a range of firm-wide events throughout the year with families invited to get to know each other outside the office setting, including an evening at the circus, a team challenge at the Crystal Maze, and BBQ garden parties. We also hold an Annual Conference for all team members to attend in Switzerland (with skiing on the side).
Team members are encouraged to continue their professional development, both externally where appropriate, and through regular in-house lectures, presentations and training sessions.
