Think bigger

At Sandfield, we employ the best people, and we hang on to them. To work here you must be an exceptional solution developer and be commercially aware, technically expert, and financially literate. Working for us isn’t just about the software, it is about understanding our clients' needs, and then utilising technology to add value. The business result is much more important than the system that supports it.

Work directly with clients

We immerse the whole team in all aspects of the software development lifecycle. All developers, regardless of their level or experience, need an in-depth understanding of the client's business and goals so that they can design workable, easily applied solutions. Communication skills are as highly valued as programming experience. As our relationships with our clients is key to our success we don’t employ contractors.

Learn and grow

We structure the business at Sandfield so that our staff are supported, challenged and fulfilled. We don't adhere to bureaucratic rules or hierarchy ­– we simply match the right people to the right job. By providing each of our staff members with the opportunity to excel in areas that they find rewarding, we have built a team of committed, highly competent professionals. A significant proportion of our team has been with the company for 10 years or more.
