What is it like to work at Cogapp?

Cogapp is an outstandingly productive and exciting working environment.

Staff development is a key priority; every member of staff has a regularly monitored training and development plan. This usually involves attendance at external courses and is intended to develop your broad career not just your technical skills. Recent courses attended by team members have covered technical, editorial, marketing and business subjects. We are frequent attendees at conferences.

Our internal policies aim to be progressive and flexible. We run a popular bike scheme and we have well developed policies for paternity, maternity and other kinds of personal leave.

The best way to see what we've been up to recently is on Twitter, Medium and Instagram.

“I can safely say working at Cogapp was a great experience, and probably the place where I grew most as a software engineer.”
