 The Company:

Founded in 1999, our client is a relatively small company doing big things. This means the people who work there have the chance to experience a huge variety of work and fast-track their careers by delivering some remarkable projects. There’s no hierarchy or egos to get in the way – just lots of challenges that need addressing from many different directions.

The people are creative and diverse with an adventurous spirit. Whilst they take work seriously, they don’t take themselves the same way. They have quarterly events, plenty of informal pizza meetings and work in a great environment – a converted mill in the middle of Leeds.

Technology is their passion but at heart they are a people business. Everything they do is guided by their values and a determination to be the very best.
