Unboxed is a place where people feel fulfilled, challenged and valued, working on digital products and services that solve complex problems and have a positive impact on people’s lives.
Our project work is wide and varied, across all sectors, from improving healthcare outcomes for patients, to creating a more efficient national planning system, to supporting key central government services and more.
Our preferred working approach is face-to-face, usually embedding with customer teams when delivering projects to ensure close working and collaboration. During Covid-19, we’ve all moved to remote ways of working (for now), but we’re hoping to get back to normal soon.
We work to ensure that everyone at Unboxed is supported within their professional growth by:
- Offering interesting and varied project work
- Encouraging thought leadership through writing blog posts and speaking at conferences
- Offering peer-to-peer mentorship opportunities within Unboxed so we can learn from one another
- Collaborating with colleagues through pair programming and design critiques
- Having communities of practice to learn and grow together , include design clubs
- Providing a generous conference budget
“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

“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?”
