Since we set out in 2012, Etch has worked with dozens of Startups and Multinational companies to design and engineer Software. We establish long-term relationships with clients to help them improve and maintain their online services.
We’re taking on more challenging projects and want to scale-up from a 4 to a 5. None of us play football, but we could finally field a 5-a-side team!
We only work on about six products a year, which allows us to give projects our full focus and build a stronger understanding of the problem we’re solving.
Canterbury (near London) is our hometown, but we’re a distributed team so you can work from anywhere. We arrange quarterly meet-ups to bring everyone together and hangout for a few days.
You’ll be working with Jim, Gav, Josh and Dan to create awesome products used by millions of people.
