We’re in the top 20! – Sunday Times Best Small Companies to work for
10 April 2015, by Amy Wood
February was a good month for Softwire. Not only did we celebrate our 15th birthday, but we also found out – for the fifth time running – that we’d been named one of the Sunday Times’ top 100 small companies to work for! This year Softwire jumped up three places to claim to 20th spot on the list, which we’re very proud of.
Softwire’s three founders set out in 2000 to build a company where developers would be happy to come to work, with a learning culture which allowed employees to grow and thrive. Fifteen years we still strive to have that ethos shine through in everything the company does.
Some of our developers have been with us from the very beginning and some are just getting started! So we asked everyone what the best thing is about working at Softwire:
Matthew (At Softwire since 2001)
‘Every project I’ve delivered. It’s a great feeling successfully delivering software that solves real problems for real people’
Antonia (Here since 2013)
‘I have tried more new things since starting work here a year ago than I did in the previous decade!’
Clinton (Joined in 2014)
‘Softwire cares about employee development, so you keep growing rather than stagnating.’
Dan (One of our Founders)
‘Multiplayer video games every lunchtime – with shouting.’
Zoe (Our managing Director)
‘Learning how to set my own career plan and following it to become MD.’
