If you value an agile, integrated development environment, with room to innovate, you’ll like how we do things.
We’ve built enterprise solutions for BUPA, apps for Original Source and more than three hundred other first class software products. Our clients are innovators and leaders in their fields.
We’re the silent partner that brings their visions to life. You’ll love getting under the hood of some of the world’s most exciting software products and working with some of the world’s best brands.
We do a lot of our best work in the eLearning sector, developing learning management environments, across a wide range of industries. We specialise in SCORM compliant LMS, using Moodle and Totara – If that sounds up your street, we should definitely talk.
The tech behind our solutions is always the latest and most up to date. Our developers work using a range of languages, frameworks and technologies, take a look at some we use frequently. Our team share knowledge and learn from each other on a daily basis, as well as being encouraged to attend meet-ups and conferences to further their own professional development.
We have monthly ‘Demo Days’ where a member of the team demonstrates something they have been working on or have recently discovered in order to share our knowledge and enthusiasm for tech across the team. We even have our own ‘Hack Days’ where we drop our usual work for two days in the year and you are given free reign to work on anything you like!
BuildEmpire’s head office is located in Didsbury in south Manchester, making us part of the UK’s largest tech hub (yes, that does include London). We’re ideally placed for the M60, M56 and M6 motorways links and local transport links are great too. Even the airport is just a 15 minute drive from here. Manchester city centre is easily accessible from our office too, putting the heart of the city within easy reach.
Happy developers write the best code. So at BuildEmpire, we want to make sure you enjoy coming into work and feel appreciated for all your hard work. Take a look at some of the benefits we offer our team. Sometimes, it is the small things that matter.
