More photos have been taken this decade than in the rest of history! Rapid advances in mobile technology mean that over a trillion pictures are captured each year. Our client helps the photo industry stay ahead of the game.

Our client is looking for talented engineers to work with them to build solutions for some of the world's biggest brands, and millions of their customers. Over the last 12 years, they've grown a diverse client base that ranges from individual store owners, through high street chains to massive global corporations. Although they're based in the UK, their core clients are also located in Ireland and North America.

They are looking for individuals committed to learning more of their trade, and supporting each other's growth in the process. They still have a startup-like culture of openness to ideas and opportunities for talent to be put to good use... plus a market-tested and profitable product line.

And plenty of the more unusual suspects; a sizable garden, fitness suite, a plethora of musical instruments, modern kitchens, a host of the latest gadgets, opportunities for sporting enthusiasts, copious nerf guns and much more. Plus a 1Gbps fibre connection... they take their technology very seriously!

To make a long story short, they've grown a place where they love working, and they think you will too.
