On the right tech

 

When it comes to tech – we’re open, bold and choosy, and we sometimes believe in the golden oldies. We combine new and exciting tech with tried and tested older frameworks and languages.

Our People

 

We’re all about lean and agile principles. We’re led by our people and spur our teams on to choose their own processes and technologies, after all, they’re closest to the problems that need solving. They know what works best, and they’re constantly evolving. There’s no mistakes, just lessons learned.
