epiGenesys is a not-for-profit software development company wholly owned by the University of Sheffield. We believe in working in a collaborative environment, and being honest and transparent with our customers.
Software development for customers is at the heart of our daily activities. We work on projects that make a real difference, from growing the efficiency of complex operations, to assisting in the progression of innovative research.
We are also passionate about practical education. Many of us contribute to the operation of Genesys, our student-led software development organisation.
We manage our own time around the needs of our roles and our colleagues. We recognise the importance of fitting work around family commitments.
Our modern offices are located at Cathedral Court in the city centre. They offer a relaxed working environment with air conditioning, spacious desks, and a variety of plants.
We have 28-32 days annual leave each year, plus all UK public holidays and four closure days.
Our company pension scheme provides a matched contribution of 5% of your salary.
Our Wellbeing Committee promotes initiatives to support our team. Recently, they have arranged training in Mental Health First Aid and Resilience At Work.
We like to be open about the company's performance. Our financial health is shared in a dashboard, and we publish our gender pay gap information.
We enjoy getting together for our annual summer social and Christmas party. We also like the occasional team lunch or board game in the office.
Our offices benefit from the latest technology including high speed internet access, Gigabit Ethernet networking, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and VoIP telephony.
We use the best tools for the job including products such as GitLab and Slack. We also built epiManage, our bespoke project management tool.
We have equipment to help us work effectively including laptops, large monitors, and smartphones. We use either an Apple MacBook Pro, or a Dell XPS running Ubuntu.
