At Infinity Works we do tech consultancy right. We hire great people and we look after them.

What we do

Infinity Works is a tech consultancy, which means we build software solutions for and with our clients.

But to us tech isn’t just application logic, it’s also defining infrastructure as code, build pipelines, monitoring and tests. 

We're fanatical about automation and driven by building systems upon which our clients and their customers can rely. These systems are secure and solidly engineered, providing the scale and performance our clients need, and the resilience they demand.

We work with big national organisations on business-critical solutions, handling more than a million parcels per day for one of the UK’s leading parcel logistics companies, providing secure authentication for a million doctors and nurses to keep the biggest healthcare provider in the UK operational, and handling spikes to thousands of requests per second for online games while maintaining sub-20ms response times.

What it's like to be here

Collaboration and teamwork are central to how we work.

There is always a buzz in our teams, whether we’re pair programming, thrashing out a design around a whiteboard or working out the product vision and plan. We trust our people and give them the freedom to get on with what they do best without getting in their way. 

When we say we wear many hats we aren’t just talking about becoming more broadly skilled. We have actually accumulated a growing collection of ridiculous headwear around the office, as well as scooters and a DIY bar on wheels complete with pickled eggs. It’s all a bit mad, and you don’t always know what’s coming next, but we kind of like it that way.

With our fresh ground coffee, beer fridge and ping pong tables our offices are a great place to be, but some of our most valuable work is done on client site. That’s where we learn the most and can have the greatest impact. Being embedded with the client gives a unique perspective on their challenges and lets us get under the skin of the problems to offer deeper solutions. We try to make sure everyone gets a taste of working on client site as well as in our office. To find out more about our culture, take a look at the Dao of Infinity Works dao.infinityworks.com.

How we do things

We’re a software engineering company and building software is everyone’s day job. 

We're fully engineering-focussed, not just an engineering department in a product company. And we take on big challenges. Complex, mission-critical systems like building banks in the cloud, a supermarket loyalty scheme and national healthcare systems that processes billions of healthcare records. 

But we don’t only build the software, in many cases we run and maintain the systems we build as well. "You build it, you run it," in true DevOps fashion. This means we’re well placed to do our favourite thing of all, shipping new features to users quickly.

Every team uses a different tech stack, the range is very diverse and we try to stay on the leading edge. We use languages like Java, PHP, C#, Python, Go and Kotlin; React and Angular alongside iOS and Android; all types of data store, from Riak and Cassandra to MySQL and MongoDB; AWS and Azure; Serverless, Docker, Kubernetes, Rancher, Prometheus and much more.

Our Culture

What’s important to us?
Infinity Works is a place where you will feel welcomed, looked after and able to express yourself.

We are very focussed on community. We feel strongly that we should give back to the communities from which we gain so much. We encourage our staff to attend tech events, present at them and even run them. We support community organised events by providing some of them with a venue or funding. We organise our own internal communities, encouraging people to share knowledge and best practice. We even run regular internal conferences.

We do consultancy without the bad bits. We don’t send people to far away cities to live out of a motel for months on end because we don’t believe that’s sustainable. Instead we take on work that is local to our bases. Sometimes we work with the client in their office but sometimes we are able to work from our own offices. Either way we will always make sure you have the support you need so you’re not “flying solo". We’re a social bunch and lots of groups have sprung up around things like sport, fitness, games, beer — even beauty treatments and African drumming! We encourage these groups to thrive and often fund their activities as well.
What's in it for me?
Our people are the lifeblood of Infinity Works so we will support you during your time with us in every way we can.

As a member of the Infinity Works team we will invest in you and provide you with the tools, training and opportunities to grow your skills and progress your career. You will be working alongside highly skilled people, giving you the chance to learn from others. We will focus on you and your career as an individual and you will have the support you need to get out of it what you put in.

We are a well established company, which enables us to provide stability alongside growth opportunities, but we work hard to retain a non-corporate culture centred around people to give you the best experience. We listen to our employees and we encourage anyone to get involved with continuously improving the company. Our low hierarchy means that everyone has a say when it comes to suggesting ideas and getting involved.
