We're passionate about building a diverse workforce from the outset and we're proud that we have both male and female Data Scientists and Software Engineers from all sorts of backgrounds. We know the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring to our culture and our clients and we'll continue to strive to attract and retain great employees from all walks of life.
How we cultivate culture of inclusion. . .

We adopt objective recruitment practices at all stages,ensure our job descriptions are clear and unbiased and we monitor our diversity ratios carefully. We promote flexible working practices and lead by example, with members of the management team working flexibly to balance family life.
