rocketmakers team cycled to the top

Our crew members lead a wide range of brilliant social events and activities that aim to be as inclusive as possible.

From our monthly book club, cheese club and crafting to optional pub socials, gaming nights and football — pretty much anything goes at Rocketmakers and we are always on the lookout for new suggestions.

We recently outgrew our old office, so we moved two floors up into a much bigger space. Here's a glimpse into what happened on our first day.

We are 30 seconds away from Bath Spa train station

The Rocketmakers office is located just 30 seconds from Bath Spa train station and is easily commutable from Bristol, Bradford-on-Avon, Chippenham, Swindon, Cardiff and further afield. Some of our crew members love to work in the office every day whilst some crew work mostly from home. We have a flexible working policy where we recognise our crew members’ needs individually and endeavour to support these where we can.

Our crew are a very friendly bunch

Rocketmakers prioritises culture over everything

Since it all began in 2007, the team has grown to 50 crew members with elders that have been with us since the beginning and 25 people who joined in 2021. Culture has been top of the priority list since Richard and Keith started the company and this truly shows through our employee retention and engagement.

What do our people say?

Don’t just take our word for it, this is what a few of our brilliant crew members have to say about working at Rocketmakers:

I’ve worked at places that have been described as ‘friendly’, but here everyone seems to be actually friends, which is a whole world of difference.

I was very close to quitting development as a career and going into something different before I began at Rocketmakers. My previous experience in the industry was just of hostile, corporate environments. It’s completely different at Rocketmakers. It’s a community, even a family. I actually care about the people I work with and I think they really care about me.

I applied because I thought I’d like the benefits, but as soon as I sat down for an interview with Richard and Keith I knew this was really different sort of place. It almost didn’t feel like an interview. They just wanted to know if I was a good fit for Rocketmakers, not trip me up or find my weaknesses.

Starting during the lockdown was certainly nerve racking but I've found the process to be super smooth. I think the tools and catch ups Rocketmakers have in place to keep everyone connected work really well, and I definitely feel part of the team and well integrated. There is a focus on wellness which has been re-assuring during this odd time, and we have been constantly reviewing and trying new ways to stay in touch, which I've really appreciated.

When I was looking for a new job last year I only applied to Rocketmakers. I got the impression it was full of talented software engineers doing amazing things, and they really wanted to do good in the community. You never really know if a company is as good as you’d hoped until you get there, but I know now I definitely made the right decision. I really enjoy the fact that there is a very supportive working environment. If you have any sort of problem with your work you can go to Richard or Keith and you’ll be helped.

Skill development is top of our agenda

Professional development is built into everyday project work at Rocketmakers.

We want our crew members to feed their curiosity. As a leading UK software development agency, we’re in an industry that is constantly evolving and changing with the latest digital developments and trends. The key to our agility is our crew adapting to these changes through passion, curiosity and continuous learning. Because of this, we offer peer to peer mentoring and a development budget to be used for events, workshops, and training sessions in career-related subjects that interest you.
