About Us

We believe in the power of exciting data to deliver real, positive change in business and society. We do this by making meaningful differences through our work and our commitment to our local area. Our employees are empowered to learn, grow and lead. They in turn provide advice and design solutions which empower clients with the ownership and agency to lead change with data.

Working in a close-knit team, all employees are encouraged to bring ideas to the table, explore new and exciting opportunities within the business and stay up to date with emerging technologies and solutions.

Some of our key benefits:

Flexible Working

If 2020 taught us anything, it is how important it is to be flexible. This is why we’ve introduced a mixture between office and remote working for all employees.


Holidays are key to a balanced and productive life. You’ll start with 25 days (plus Bank Holidays) and that entitlement will build up to 30 days. You can also ‘buy’ up to 3 additional days’ leave – useful for that extra special event. This applies after 2 years’ service and you can spread the cost of your ‘purchase’ over the leave year.

Pension Scheme

We’ve always been ahead of the game on pensions; we think they are important. So, to help you be as comfortable as possible when you retire, we match your own contributions up to 9% of your salary.

Courses & Conferences

We know that everyone likes a trip away from the office every now and then. If you find a course, conference or event that you think will advance your learning then we’ll happily arrange for you to attend.


No one likes working on their birthday. If your birthday falls on a weekday, we’ll give you the day off. If not, well there’s always next year.

State of the Art Offices

We are located in a restored 1850’s Racquets Court within a few minutes’ walk of the City’s pubs, bars, theatres, and department stores. We restored the building ourselves – so its designed with our people in mind. The Racquets Court in equipped with the best furniture and equipment from across Europe and connectivity to Newcastle’s open metro network.

Social Events

We like to look after our team wherever possible. If we’re out as a team having fun, then we don’t want you worrying about how much it is costing you. Generally, we’ll pick up the tab. We also like to treat the whole team to monthly team lunches from some of our favourite local eateries.
