Here at Sagittarius, we have created an inspirational environment for our staff at each of our 5 offices in Kent, London, Leeds, Ukraine and Sri Lanka.

It’s a bit loud, pretty relaxed, and collaborative and we are constantly trying new technology and integrating the really good stuff.

We start our day with a “stand-up” as a whole team – sharing successes and offering each other solutions for the day ahead.

We have strong relationships with our clients and we have regular trips out for pizza, beers in the office on a Friday before logging off and social events (if that’s your thing). Most importantly we invest in our teams skill sets with supported training and certification and we have a commitment to promoting from within and developing you for your future.

Our culture is really important to us and we want the best cultural fit and the best talent to join us. Our teams are positive, enthusiastic, passionate about technology and really comfortable with the internal and external collaboration that is core to our business. A desire to constantly expand your skill set should be equally important to you.
