Typically you would read about a company’s culture and awesome perks. We got you on all that – trust us.

But we believe it’s about rallying people who enjoy each other’s company and respect each other’s skill. It’s about working alongside people you can rely on and can learn from. Those you can spar with intellectually one moment, then grab a beer and play fussball or darts with the next.

It’s all about the benjamins people
