Benefits

  • Our bespoke office is located in the newly developed Water’s Edge building overlooking the city’s quay at the heart of Dundee
  • You will have the opportunity to work on both current and next-gen platforms
  • Our team loves to play board games, but we do lots of other things too both in and out of work for everyone to get involved in
