Equal Experts – Why Work For Us?


A diverse, global community of over 700 experienced software professionals.

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.

Elegant, bespoke software, built with passion and pragmatism.

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.

For a more complete list of what we do, check our website.

Common principles unite our diverse network.

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.

    I have been working at Equal Experts (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Although EE are a company that is staffed mainly by contractors (75%) you would never know this.

    They say they are a company of grown ups and this is definitely the case, structure is flat, everyone is trusted to do their jobs and there is none of the usual politics or nonsense you get in almost all other companies.

    As an associate (contractor) you really get the best of all worlds as you get paid great day rates and have a fantastic support network and welcoming culture.

    If you are a contractor at the top of your game then look no further, if you are thinking of going contracting then look no further. EE is the place to be

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - I'm proud to work with EE
