What Makes the Perfect Bright Spark?


We’ve quickly out grown our Trafalgar Square offices, and only once the last desk had been occupied did we accept that it was time to move on to pastures new.

Fortunately, the combination of some tight deadlines, a few beers and an awesome, dedicated team meant that the move went as smoothly as possible.

Since our incorporation in December (nearly a year old now – whoa!), we’ve had some fantastic talent join our rapidly expanding team of Bright Sparks. One of which has been our awesome Principle UX Consultant, Candice Diemer, who brings with her over six years experience designing web and mobile products, as well as leading UX teams. Candice has since wowed our clients with her brilliant UX and project work.

Tim Myles joins us as a Senior Producer after spending 7 years at IBM and is responsible for all key client accounts. He has since been cracking the whip to make sure that all our processes are ship-shape at every stage.

Also joining the team is our Engineer Mani, and Herve, Bright North’s Senior Data Scientist. If you’re interested in Data and Dev events then it’s likely you see one of these guys while you’re there – they tend to frequent any of London Java Community, London Software Craftmanship Community, DataKind or any one of the numerous related meetups. Mani recently won a star Heroku prize at a Hacked.io event, which you can read more about on his blog post here.

These guys have been doing some awesome work helping to develop great products for our clients as well as our own website redesign, details of which will be up on our blog shortly.

Anyway, after hiring all these great people, we inevitably got a little big for our cosy office, and it was finally time to move on to a great new office just next to Goodge Street station (33-34 Alfred Place, come and visit us for a cuppa if you’re in the area).

Now that we’ve moved to a bigger HQ, we’ve got room to take on even more incredible talent. We are looking for driven, focused, hard-working, creative, entrepreneurial game changers within their field. If that applies to you, and you think you’ve got what it takes to be part of a rapidly expanding team who are helping to enable transformational changes for our clients, then we’d love to hear from you.
