One anonymous employee said: “It’s great place to work thanks to the laid back ethos that comes from the management down to the staff. Everyone works hard and as a result we’re treated like adults.”

As well as high levels of staff morale, the company is also going from strength to strength with projected revenue growth of 100% in 2016.

This increasing momentum has allowed the company to more than double its global headcount going from 30 members of staff to 63and opened a second American office in Austin, Texas.

Dan McCarthy, appointed as strategy director to run the Austin office said: “Though I am new to the company, I have been thrilled with how things have taken off here in the States, we’re expecting a strong finish to the year with more to come in 2017.”

The company is working on a range of projects in retail, fintech and healthcare and is predicting further growth. New customers include retail giant B&M Homestores and international provider of learning and development solutions Fitch Learning.

CEO Sarat Pediredla said: “It’s great to have secured our second FTSE 250 partner in B&M Homestores and we were very proud to have seen off competition from London, Europe and even New York based agencies to partner with Fitch learning. We have a growing international business with a strong pipeline, so we are very bullish about 100%+ growth over the next 2 years.

“Given the potential that the US market has and the encouraging signs since opening in Boston and then expanding into Austin, we plan to grow there with a view to adding delivery teams and increasing our capabilities to better serve our partners”.
