Why SilverStripe?

We're family friendly

SilverStripe is a grown-up company. We want to create an environment that has all the excitement and intellectual stimulation of a startup but with a sensible business model. We don't have ninjas and rock stars working 80-hour weeks. We do enjoy working with smart people in an efficient and disciplined manner. Many SilverStripers have young families and we strive to support that.

We take professional development seriously

There are plenty of opportunities for learning - we pay for SilverStripers to attend conferences and training; we hold our own monthly Hackdays; and we encourage knowledge sharing through regular internal events like "Show & Tell" and "Lunch & Learn". We've got something on each week. Mostly, you'll be working alongside super smart designers, developers and scrum masters. They'll share their love of the craft and help you grow your skills.

We have an awesome culture

SilverStripe is big on things like building trusting relationships, using technology to solve important problems, and helping others reach their goals. We actively foster a culture that supports our core values of honesty over comfort; adaptability over guarantees; collaboration over control; continuous improvement over perfection and camaraderie over corporate culture. Our culture sets us apart - it's a key reason why people come to SilverStripe and stay here.

At SilverStripe we're passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. Companies that are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity and perspective are proven to deliver better solutions.
