We’re a Tier 1 Google premier partner and do everything from planning, migrating and supporting businesses who want to move to the cloud.
We’ve also developed a world leading suite of global software products and services to make the move to the cloud a seamless process and to ensure businesses make the most of it once they get there.
We work in a fast-paced sector where culture is a huge part of who we are and what we do. Sometimes we wear shorts and skirts to work, wave at the window cleaners, put stickers on our laptops and say swear words.
