What's it like to work here?
When you’re an innovation led company that’s spent the last 40 years going out of its way to recruit the most intelligent, innovative, talented people on Earth, telling them to sit at a desk and do what they’re told obliterates 99 percent of their value. We want innovators, and that means maintaining an environment where they will flourish.
Sometimes things around the office can seem a little too good to be true. If you find yourself walking down the hall one morning with a bowl of fresh fruit and a freshly ground expresso after a workout at the local gym don’t freak out. All these things are for you to use. And don’t worry that somebody’s going to judge you for taking advantage of it—relax! And if you stop on the way back from the kitchen to play darts or a game of table tennis or whatever, it’s not a sign that this place is going to come crumbling down like some 2007 era debt ridden bank. It’s the same for our remote workers to whether it’s stopping by at Starbucks on your way to your first visit or heading down to the local pool for a swim after a long day and waving your company membership card at the receptionist, these things were meant for you to use.
Our working environment
Forget drab, dull and boring. We’re all about creating an environment to inspire and get the best out of the team from having a quick game of pool whilst your tea brews to one of the team cooking breakfast. We don’t believe in unnecessary hierarchy: our culture is open, collaborative and built on talent and experience that spans the globe.
There is no need for you to use the office, flexible, agile working is good with us. Some of us prefer the office, some work from home and some of us have family commitments, so we work around these. As long as you can get the job done, we’re flexible.
A lot of companies say they are flexible. As champions of challenging the status quo, we walk the talk when it comes to supporting flexible work arrangements for our employees. We actively promote work/life balance and support flexible working in its many forms. We pride ourselves in allowing our employees to excel from hot desking to work closely with the people you maybe working on a project with the flexibility to work the hours that allows you to have a good balance between work, family and the rest of the important stuff in life. Holiday is there whenever you need it and there is no set allocation
