Our customers have recently won the connected broadcaster of the year award at the IBC for the live streaming services provided by Streamhub, our flagship product.

Being a small company still, every person counts for hell of a lot. Self management and pro-active communication becomes very important. We’re a team of 11 so it’s a relaxing environment but everyone needs to deliver above average.

On the upsides, we run a competitive bonus scheme and will be providing share options. Personal development is also high on our agenda, giving you the chance to attend devcons and training that will benefit the mission.

Having grown from 2 to 10 in the last two years, we keep things real and fun for ourselves.

Currently looking to move into a bigger office space that will accommodate for good gaming competitions and if we’re lucky to get a large enough space, a fusbal table!
