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!

“Today I could be creating an infographic about 'The Craziest Laws Around the World', tomorrow 'The Deadliest Marvel Characters'. Screaming Frog gives me the opportunity to work on a diverse and creative range of projects, each one offers the freedom to experiment with different themes and styles. Most of all, I love the environment; it’s friendly, relaxed and we do lots of stuff as a team. So if you also love creating cool and interesting things for the internet, definitely look into joining our team!”
