    Business Outlook


    One of the very few companies that delivers on its promises. When you’re told about the culture in the interview, it’s that good and more. Very open, everyone working as a team, brilliant consultation internally, fun and lovely colleagues. Work moves quickly, it’s not bureaucratic and if you have a good idea people listen and you can make it happen. Hybrid working model is great, as is the compensation. This includes little touches like free cereal and big things like generous pension and vesting of shares.


    Genuinely aren’t any for me.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Opencast (United Kingdom) in Dec 2022


      I had a lovely informal chat with the recruitment team then I had two follow up interviews. The recruitment team kept me up to date all the way along which was great.

      Can't remember exactly but there was a question on the differences between being a consultant and being an in house developer.
