Made Tech – Why Work With Us?


       

Working at Made Tech is about doing what you love.

We hire people who are passionate about their work, who always strive to be better and who just love making things.

We care about our work

We deliver quality software, and encourage best practices because it makes sense for business. Automated test suites, code quality analysis, peer reviews, pair programming are just a few practices that put our work above the rest.

We make a difference

We primarily write and deliver custom software for the public sector. We work across central and local government, as well as in health, and our past lies in the technology startup world. Technical excellence for us isn’t about delivering to feature lists. We place a strong emphasis on outcome-based delivery; ensuring our customer’s goals are understood and achieved with the technology we deploy.

We continuously improve

We see the importance and value in self-improvement. We spend every Friday afternoon learning together, there are show and tells right after, regular reviews and other reflective practices to help encourage sharing. 

 

       

We welcome applications from everyone no matter your ethnicity, gender, sexuality, or any other intersection.

We are committed to ensuring Made Tech is a diverse and inclusive place to work.

We do our best to treat our team well. Here are a few of the perks you can expect at Made Tech:

Untracked Holiday/Hours

We encourage you to take off as much time as you need during the year so you’re always fresh and focused on doing great work.

Remote Working

We have a great office in London Bridge where a lot of the team choose to spend their time, but we want you to work wherever you’re most productive. Be it the kitchen table or the beach.

Anniversary Reward

After 3 years with us, we'll send you and your family off for a 2 week fully paid holiday worth up to £4,000  and after 5 years this rises to up to a 4 week fully paid holiday worth up to £8,000 (plus an extra budget if you have childern)

Dedicated Learning

Each Friday we dedicate the afternoon to learning new skills and knowledge sharing with our colleagues.

Travel loan and cycle to work

We make your commute as affordable as possible by offering a travel loan for your season ticket or by helping you buy a bike.

Team Lunches

We get 8 colleagues together every Friday and have a team lunch somewhere around the office in Bankside.

Friday Drinks

You work hard, so every Friday we'll get the drinks in. Cheers!

Brand new Macbook Pro

We will provide you with a new laptop ready for your new start.

Employee assistance programme

Free finance and legal advice, along with over-the-phone counselling.

Fully Stocked Kitchen

We'll take care of all your snacking needs, such as fresh fruit, snacks (healthy and not-so-healthy), fizzy drinks, etc.

Events

Each year we take the company away for an all expenses paid weekend so that you can get to know your colleagues away from the office.

There's also a Christmas Party with games, activities and a meal.

We recently run a Bake Off competition - so much fun, and so delicious, that we'll likley made this an annual event! :) 

Now that we are growing, especially across more locations, we'll aim to have at least 1 event per quarter where we're all together. 

We're a friendly bunch and we're always looking at ways to integrate our tech and non-tech colleagues. This could be as simple as joining one of our slack interest channels, coffee club, regular Friday socials right up to our summer extravaganza.

We've got many groups of interests, self organised mostly, with a football team (5-a-side) and a group of passionate board gamers. 

Many of us love pets and we often have someone bring in their dog :)

For those who enjoy a drink, we stock a beer fridge and there are often groups of people who stay in the office longer on a Friday to enjoy a drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) together.

At our weekend away we always ensure to have an alcohol free table for dinner for those who don't drink

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Made Tech (London, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Contacted via email from the internal recruiter, first interview via phone, 30 min. Second stage F2F scheduled but never happened. The day before the interview they changed the job spec and cancelled the interview. Very unprofessional.
