We have offices in Elstree, London, and Portugal and we do like to bring people together as we feel it’s an important part of our culture, so you’d need to be happy to travel to the office occasionally, but of course, if you love the office vibes then come in as often as you like, we have good coffee and we’re a sociable bunch.
