In Software development, we currently have teams of developers working on a range of products. We employ all levels of experience in the team from junior software developer to senior/lead developers. We play with Blockchain, Machine Learning, AWS, Kubernetes. Our tools of the trade are Java, Kotling and TypeScript. We all have Macbooks and IntelliJ-s. We work alongside our product team to co-operate with world-class universities from the UK, the US and Switzerland to help bring their innovations into the market.
