An informal, Agile approach is taken by the friendly team, who are based out of their offices in Cambridge. Hybrid working of up to 2 days per week would be offered to successful candidates, once settled into the role. The remuneration package is comprehensive and includes a bonus scheme, private health cover, career development and support for learning opportunities, as well as an attractive salary. Travel to popular cities in the US, Canada and Asia – with the potential for an extended working visit – is also an option for those who would enjoy it!
