We recognise and reward hard work and celebrate our successes over a Friday afternoon drink and at various socials throughout the year. We don't sweat the small stuff either, our dress code is as relaxed as we are. As well as local charity events and initiatives, we hold global days and activities to make the most of our global strength and diversity. This includes a yearly global hackathon! We may be one of the largest financial software providers, but we haven't forgotten our roots; we've kept the entrepreneurial spirit and agility that defined our early years - it's something we continue to look for and admire in our people.
