We have a strong team spirit with open (often off topic) discussions creating a fun, energised and lively atmosphere in the office. We have a constantly replenishing supply of tea/coffee, fruit & ice-cream. We have a big TV and comfy sofas in the office, so that we can all relax once in a while.

We enjoy breakfast when the farmers' market is in town and pizza once a month, as well as team lunches to pubs on the river. We use “team building” as an excuse to visit breweries or go-kart tracks, oh and we also offer health insurance!

“Screaming Frog is a great place to get to grips with all things digital - just bring enthusiasm and leave the training to us. You’ll be both a creative whizz and technically savvy in no time. You’ll have control over how you want to get the best results for your clients and projects. We’re very very social too - There’s always a fun outing (e.g. The Henley Regatta) or interesting industry conference (e.g. BrightonSEO) in the diary to look forward to. If you like pub gardens, you’ve come to the right place!”
