How We Work
As a company, we don’t work late! We don’t work weekends! We focus on keeping everyone fresh and able to deliver high-quality work, with enough energy to get it right, the first time. This approach is important to understand as that requires that you as an individual have to be driven to produce high-quality outputs.

The current team leaders are very much software engineers that could easily turn their hand to building a blue chip Java, native iOS or Android application. In other words, we expect our team to be able to up-skill to a high level as new technology requirements come up to meet us. As a general rule, we are mostly a Java-based software development team however, as well as the above various members of the team have genuine depth in other languages such as .NET, PHP, CSS, JaveScript, WordPress, C, C++, MySQL, Percona, Oracle, Tomcat etc. Other members still have a more dev-ops background. In other words, we are looking for genuine software developers who can apply best practices where it is needed, rather than someone who is focused on one specific technology stack.
