  • A family - We're a close team and we love what we do. We believe in the platform and we encourage each other to succeed as a team and individually 

  • Fast-paced - in a high-growth company, things can change in a heartbeat but we’ve got the drive to jump in and get a job done 

  • Hands-on - we will all roll up our sleeves and get involved. While we have individual specialist skills, we support each other to deliver the best results as a team. 

  • Award-Winning - we have won multiple awards celebrating the technology we have created and this is all down to our hard-working dev team!

  • Social - From team BBQs on our balcony to Axe-Throwing to daily HIIT sessions to company-wide events, we like to keep the emphasis on making work fun!
