Technology careers

We may be a global company, but small teams and an agile approach mean you can make a big impact, fast. You’ll have the freedom to experiment, develop your ideas and work with the latest tools as you build the world-leading technologies that change the way knowledge is shared.

The vision

We find new and inventive ways to use technology to help researchers make breakthroughs and clinical professionals save lives. Imagine what you could achieve in this creative environment.


Why join us?

We’re customer obsessed

Our customers are clinical professionals looking to improve patients’ lives, and researchers seeking to advance human understanding. We use customer insights and data to solve problems and enhance performance.

We take relentless ownership

Our people take ownership from end to end. We follow through on promises and act as role models for our core values and ethical behaviour.

We move with pace

We have a clear bias for action and understand the essential need to move at speed. We ensure what can be done is done, and use data to drive decisions, not delay them.

We build trust

We’re a team.  We work towards our shared purpose and mission, not personal agendas. We embrace diversity and strive for inclusivity - we listen attentively and seek to understand different perspectives.

We’re incurably curious

We’re always looking for ways to innovate and improve, to build on and support other ideas. We spot business opportunities and have a passion for continuous learning and development.

We set the bar high

We strive for excellence, ensuring we’re the best we can be - as individuals and as a team. We care about the quality of our products and services and aim for perfection.
