- Our London office is shared with several other Digital Science companies, so there’s lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.
- You can pick your own equipment. MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we’ll provide what you need.
- We provide a training budget; many of our staff choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.
