  • We went out into the wilderness

    Well, Wales... but that is pretty much the wilderness. For our Spring RLM we made our way to an unpronounceable town in South Wales for a team BBQ, archery and clay pigeon shooting. Let's just say some of the team are better sat in front of a computer than out in the wild.

  • A very big house in the country

    For our summer RLM (real life meeting) we headed to a remote country house in Kent. Day 1 was spent around the kitchen table (literally) talking company strategy and plans for the future, and Day 2 was all about protecting ourselves against a zombie invasion by building huge catapults to hurl grapefruits from (we got a little carried away). The big house in the country was a great success, and we hope to make it an annual trip.

  • Day in the Life

    Our new interview style is past testing and underway! We invite candidates in for a day of co-working on an open source project; what better way to interview than to watch a coder write code and co-work with the team they are looking to join?! And a beer afterwards always helps.

  • Our Bristol hub opens

    The doors finally opened on our Bristol Hub at St Nicholas House (right next to Pieminister and BrewDog – a coincidence, we promise!) and the Surevine Goes 4th party followed soon after. Enough said about that
