Devbridge Group design and build software for global institutions within the finance, tech, farming and manufacturing sectors. We have been around for over a decade and in that time have seen significant growth. With a global reach we are now starting to build a team at our brand new office in London as part of our European offering. We still feel like a 'start-up'; here but with the back-up of a 300+ engineering team and a multitude of other skill sets that mitigate ‘start-up' risk.
Based at near Liverpool Street Station in a WeWork office building, we are still small but looking to grow therefore this is the ideal time to shape the role and how you fit into the business. It’s fun, fast and lean and we look to keep it that way!
