We are tackling some of the biggest technical challenges, in the gaming and financial industries, by utilising the latest cutting-edge technologies and approaches all while we continue to disrupt and revolutionise the market.

  • Play a part in technical discussions and soak up knowledge and experience from your peers
  • Start writing code with quality, testing and performance in mind from the first line
