hedgehog lab – Why Work For Us?


Founded as a global digital product consultancy in 2010, and with offices in London, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Boston, India & Copenhagen, hedgehog lab has a team that is growing rapidly by focusing on delivering great post-PC experiences and campaigns to clients across the UK & abroad.

hedgehog lab has architected and developed mobile solutions and software for clients like News International, Channel 4, Financial Times, Booths, Societe Bic, East Coast Trains, AkzoNobel, B&M, Mitsubishi, CBRE, England Rugby, NESN, Northumbrian Water, Camping and Caravanning Club, HULT, Thinking Digital and Grainger plc.

With smartphone sales accelerating at a rapid pace and tablet technologies being spear-headed by the iPad, we have bet our future on a completely post-PC world where mobile devices, smart connected devices and touch screen technologies out-pace fixed desktop PC devices.

We are one of the leading smart phone & tablet application developers in our region, working with cutting-edge mobile platforms like the iOS, tvOS, WatchOS, Android, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.


Remain focused

We’re not an ‘integrated’, ‘full service’, or ‘digital’ agency - or simply put, a ‘jack of all trades’.

Many companies will try to upsell additional services such as SEO, media planning or a thousand other things to their clients. That’s just not us.

We focus solely on designing & building great post-PC software. It’s what we do best.

Build apps and software people love to use

We aren’t content with building software that is merely useful or good.

We want to build the best products that our customers (and their customers) will love and rave about. We want our passion and skill for technology to be reflected in every project we work on.

Turn customers into fans

We constantly strive to exceed all expectations. For us, customer service isn’t an afterthought - it’s a core part of our business.

Our commitment to exceptional customer service is just one of the factors that gives us an edge in this highly competitive industry.

People are our greatest assets

Although our business is building software, we believe that our people are our most valuable intellectual property.

We believe that if you create a great working environment for people and empower them with the right tools, great products and service will be the natural outcome.

We are always investing and nurturing new talent. At the same time, if you feel you have experience that would be valuable to our team we’d love to hear from you.

    I worked at hedgehog lab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    hedgehog lab has a rare bunch of incrdibly talented people there who are focussed on creating great products and being good people. Each member of the team knows their role and ego's are left at the door and they're dealt with when they become an issue. Thanks to this environment, I've felt my skills increase massively since the day I joined here fresh out of university and I'm grateful to have been able to be a part of the journey. Management aren't too concerned of your whereabouts as long as deadlines are met and work doesn't suffer and you're available for your team. I have seen first hand the huge benefit this attitude brings to parents for example or when something unavoidable pops up. If your workload ever becomes a little too much and you bring this up, it gets sorted for you.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a negative about hedgehog lab that would make me feel hesitant to apply to work here. Nowhere you work will ever be "perfect", but hedgehog ticks a LOT of boxes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the momentum up on the recent initiative of giving employees a platform to voice thoughts and empowering employees to take matters into their own hands.
