Mission: Equal Experts is an award-winning agile consultancy. We aspire to be ‘a company of grown-ups’ – somewhere that experienced, talented people can truly be themselves, and collaborate with like-minded colleagues to create innovative, simple solutions ...
The EE network is made up of Associates, permanent staff and Partners. No matter the position, we look for quality above all else – growing our numbers organically via personal referrals.
All our experts have extensive experience, and we also operate a rigorous selection process. This ensures that everyone who works for us has the skills required to thrive in the dynamic client environments that host our projects.
Our focus on only using senior people brings many benefits. With a flat structure promoting empowerment, we can operate with fewer overheads, while offering a more concentrated pool of experienced talent than our competitors. It also means our talent can focus on work that adds real value, rather than micro-managing more junior consultants.
For our clients, this all translates to better software, delivered faster and at lower cost. And for our team, it means a working environment with less politics and more freedom to innovate. Experienced people know what they’re doing – we free them to do what they do best.
We provide tailored, end-to-end services in software development and delivery – from user research and design, to technical architecture, development and QA, all the way to devops, continuous delivery, hosting and support.
With offices in the UK, US, Portugal, India and Canada, our network of over 700 experienced software consultants – a blend of permanent employees and associates – creates software for a wide range of public and private sector clients. These include organisations as diverse as HMRC, the Home Office, O2, Camelot and major institutions in the publishing, financial and retail sectors.

We never stop thinking about how to create the most meaningful work, in the best possible way.
To that end, we’ve set down our approach in a set of delivery values, and technical values. If they align with your way of doing things, we’d love to talk.

To celebrate a decade of Equal Experts, we asked a few members of our network – employees, associates, customers and alumni – what they value about working with us.
The following videos focus on key aspects of what has become a distinctive culture, and somewhere our people tell us is a great place to work.
We’ve been helping organisations to tackle business challenges head-on since 2007. In that time we’ve created everything from top-rated mobile apps to platforms that help government cater for millions of citizens day-in, day-out.
I have been working at Equal Experts full-time (More than 3 years)
A true values driven organisation that has progressive ways of working and attitudes to their people. Always seeking to learn, evolve and to do better. A world apart from the usual traditional IT consultancies and all the better for it . A focus on doing what's right for clients and their people above office politics and profits.
Some growing pains as they evolve.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Equal Experts in December 2014.
Got referred through an Equal Expert employee. In about 3 days (mid week) got an email requesting a screening call. During the call the HR (they call them People Managers) asked about my work, projects, TDD, Agile exposure (main thing!). At the end of call I was emailed a programming task for the famous 'fizz-buzz' problem with a bit of twist in it.
Submitted it back after the weekend as zip attachments, with some patterns used and lots of unit tests along with an alternative solution for each step asked. Got a reply the day after next that they are struggling to find someone to review it. End of the week got a rejection with feedback saying that I used NO patterns, should refactor using ReSharper (didn't think that was the requirement in the first place), no usage of GitHub to submit results(!).
Overall, I still like the company because of its freedom, vivid project and good people, but they should really (read MUST!) use standard reviewing methods and not dig into tools used to do the work. A good quality code is to be reviewed and not the tools used produce it (atleast that's what they said in the task).
