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 use agile practices and prefer to self-organise, however we have some processes and guidelines in place to ensure everyone shares a common approach. We aim to constantly improve the way we do things and encourage everyone to have input into this.
