About us

We work with some brilliant startups, working on projects with real purpose – including OLIO, the app that’s tackling global food waste – and try to ensure we’re only working with corporate businesses when our values truly align.

For you this will mean working with some talented and passionate people – and influencing both the design and function of products that have huge positive potential for both people and planet.

We love nothing more than to nurture talent and respect that different brains work in different ways. That said, you’ll regularly find us experimenting with new ways of doing things and our ears will always prick up at your ideas, big or small.

You’ll find that the team has some wide-ranging personal interests too so, when we’re not geeking out about tech and design, we’re never short of mind-expanding topics to mull over. We like to think this stimulates some of our most wacky and wonderful ideas, both in the office and out.

We’re not all words and no substance though and have recently been awarded the accolade of Employer of the Year by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) for our commitment to team culture and personal development.

Come and be a part of it all!
