We are a London based digital service design and development agency with 18 years of experience in creating great digital services in both the public and private sector. Our delivery approach is strongly based on Agile principles.
We work in multidisciplinary teams, collaborating all the way from initial user research and customer engagement through to building fully functioning digital services. We believe in openness, transparency and honest communication, encouraging collaboration and learning from each other.
Digital services we’ve designed and developed include UK Parliament Petitions, SH:24 online sexual health, char.gy electric vehicle charging, and others.
We live our values at Unboxed:
- openness and transparency
- learning by doing
- healthy relationships
- care and attention
- continuous improvement
We look for people who can apply these values to their work, their team and our clients.
We’ve worked really hard to create our own unique culture of support, kindness, autonomy and reflection. We’ve written quite a lot about it, and these blog posts will give you a good idea of what it’s like working with us.
“To me, Unboxed is distinct in that it gathers and brings to the table a huge pool of great, diversified talent. That seems to be our greatest assets: our people and the way we empower them to create solutions to problems.”
Pedro Moreira, Developer, Unboxed Alumnus
A focus on wellbeing
At Unboxed, we strive to create an inclusive workplace environment where people can thrive and feel they belong, by promoting a good work life balance, open communication and positive working relationships.
Activities to keep our people connected include:
- our regular Whines and Cheers' social
- weekly team breakfasts
- monthly 'Linkers and Thinkers' lunches, pairing up colleagues
- The Unboxed Goss, our internal newsletter
- quarterly company retrospectives
- company-wide resilience training
- regular team sessions on wellbeing
“It goes to the heart of our values that Unboxeders feel happy, valued and engaged. It's not always perfect but we keep on learning and we keep on trying to do the best by our people.”
Vicky Peel, People
We ensure that work life balance is met by offering:
- 25 days holidays, plus bank holidays
- Holiday loyalty and flex bonus
- Maternity and Shared Parental Leave policies
- A pension scheme
- 10 innovation days per year
Everyone at Unboxed gets 10 innovation days each year. These are non-project days where team members can work on personal projects for professional development, spend time mentoring or teaching people in local communities about our work, or organise a hack day to explore new ideas.
Our innovation days have led to a few spin-offs, including:
“Innovation days are great for exploring interests, as well as doing things that don’t necessarily fall under your job title. Last year, I taught a class of ten year olds about coding, which was incredibly fun and rewarding. My favourite question: did Kanye West invent the internet?”
Celia Collins, Developer
Sorry, we are not actively hiring for any roles at the moment.
