Innovation, powered by people

Our ability to reliably deliver genuine innovation for our clients is underpinned by our unwavering commitment to our people: we strive to create teams and environments where the open exchange of ideas builds both better products and stronger relationships, which is supported through our values:

  • We challenge – we challenge ourselves to go beyond the obvious. To act with integrity, to deliver excellence, to improve and to innovate. We challenge our clients in pursuit of better solutions.
  • We care – we care deeply about our craft, colleagues, clients and their customers. We demonstrate this through companionship, compassion, and candour.
  • We collaborate – everyone is equal. Everyone has value. Individually we are brilliant. Together we are unstoppable.We fully understand the importance of creating a place that can fuel interests, feel secure, and provide a good work-life balance. Through the guidance of our leadership and people teams, we’ve gone beyond the expected and implemented processes designed to fully support our colleagues, both as professionals, and as people.

We’ve partnered with some of the UK’s most forward thinking lifestyle brands to ensure that our people feel supported, encouraged, and informed, every step of their journey. Find out more about our partners and list of benefits you can expect when working with us.

Our people are what make xDesign such a welcoming and supportive place to work, and we’re thankful to each and every one of them for lending their voices to the Best Workplace survey, which has granted us a place in the UK’s Best WorkplacesTM in Tech 2021, and the first ever UK Best WorkplacesTM for Wellbeing 2022.

 

 

Our commitment to the Leeds community

In July 2021, we expanded our presence to the North of England and opened our office in the thriving tech-hub of Leeds. Since then, we’re pleased to have welcomed nearly 25 people to the Leeds team, including our CPTO, Jeff Watkins, and we’ve become more involved in the community through participating in events like Fintech North and hosting workshops at Leeds Trinity University.

Based in Bruntwood SciTech’s Platform, our Leeds office has access to a wealth of specialist support, which continues to drive our success and growth in the North of England. Not only does the region give us the chance to interact with like-minded, innovative businesses on a daily basis, it also provides us with the perfect space to nurture the people we’ve brought on board since arriving here. We look forward to continuing our support of businesses and talent in the region through our sponsorship of Leeds Digital Festival.

We’re constantly working to empower innovation and growth everywhere around us, which is exactly why we’ve pledged to create 100 new jobs in the North of England by 2023. As a result, we’re recruiting for a variety of roles, which are all available for UK based remote working as well as office or hybrid working for those based near our offices in Edinburgh or Leeds.
