Our response to COVID-19
We have implemented a working from home policy during the current pandemic and for the foreseeable future. However due to certain business requirements we still have engineers that are required to go to the office from time to time.
In these cases we expect anyone in the office to respect the rules that have been set out. For example social distancing, not holding meetings with any clients face to face, and making sure to wash your hands regularly. We also provide face masks for people travelling to the office and there is hand sanitiser located before entering the office.
Due to travel restrictions we prefer local candidates, but we’re happy to interview candidates who are willing to relocate. A lot of our hires have been international in the past so we are quite experienced with this.
