Forgive us for getting straight to the point but time is valuable right? You didn't come here to read about features and benefits or look at glossy pics of sharp-dressed business people shaking hands. We're pretty sure you came to find out something about us and what we do. If not, well hello anyway. Stay a while and have a look around...
Data! We love data and everything that goes with it...

There's a reason for so many pictures of our team on this website: They're more important to us than anything else. They inspire us, our customers and each other every day. Our priority as a business is to make sure they are not only challenged and happy but also to make sure they never leave. This also means we're incredibly fussy about who we hire
We are curious, driven, compassionate, tenacious, sharing, friendly, independent, collaborative, communicative, supportive, self-motivated, and love data.
We want to work with people interested in making sense of people's data and the world a better place. Think you’ve got what it takes?
We take at least one undergrad on a year-long placement every year (no "red brick only" snobbiness here). In ten years, only one hasn't returned to work with us after graduating
Don't waste your sandwich year on a corporate helpdesk - spend it somewhere where no day is ever the same.

The real boss..
Like many great ideas, the seeds of Adatis were planted after one too many beers in a small bar in Houston, Texas in 2004 but it was a couple of years and a few more nights out before things really got started. We had worked together for a number of years and found we shared a similar vision of what is important, both in life and in business..
We'd heard too many buzzwords and sat in too many meetings about meetings to know that wasn't for us. We wanted to be a company who only gave advice it believed in, where people genuinely enjoyed coming to work every day and who delivered great projects on exciting tech.
We came up with a name (harder than we thought) and in June 2006, we sat in Martyn's lounge wondering what the hell we had done! We won our first project at Yell.com about a month later and took on our first employee about 18 months after that.
Growing the company over the last ten years through some tough economic times is something we're really proud of. But even more so is the team around us. We're incredibly fussy about who we hire and whilst that makes recruitment hard work sometimes, it means we've got people around us who inspire us every day.
“It’s not rocket science – a happy team is a productive team. We take that a step further - we actively aim to be the best company to work for in our sector. Our team comes before everything else - that means our customers get the best possible value and experience.”
“It cuts both ways - we might not be right for you, you may not be right for us. This applies right across our business; You might want the cheapest rather than the best. We might think working with you will be, well, hard work. You might not want a job that pushes you every day. You might be brilliant but just not quite right for our team.
Sometimes 'no' just might be the best answer… ”
“We work with our customers as a part of their team - it makes projects more fun and more effective (read successful). We need our customers to sign up to that or maybe we should just be friends (see previous value).
The same applies to our team – we don’t have an open door policy, we have a no door policy. The team is involved in every key decision – they came up with these values with us (not for us).”
“Knowledge is power… or so they say. At Adatis, knowledge is a hot potato – if you hold on to it yourself for too long you’ll get burned. We take that potato, cover it with bacon and cheese and share it out amongst the whole team – delicious! Our Build days, Hackathons and brown bag lunches are an essential part of life at Adatis.
And we don’t just share knowledge, our team has access to any information they want to see (that we can legally share) from minutes of the board meeting to last year’s accounts.”
“Whilst No is OK, Yes people definitely aren’t welcome here. We love learning about our customers’ business and the problems they face. But after listening, we usually ask why it’s done that way. And if the answer is “because we always have”, we’ll ask again.
And we expect our team to do the same of each other.”
“We admit it, we’re geeks! We love what we do and we especially love data. What we love most of all is delivering solutions that make a difference. We once had an executive board whooping and hollering when we presented our solution – that’s now set the bar for every project!
At the same time, we recognise and respect that work is only one part of our lives; waking up fresher is much more efficient than working late and taking time off to recharge before our batteries run out is the norm here.”
“bleeding edge: (noun).
1. the most advanced stage of a technology, art, etc., usually experimental and risky.
Everyone at Adatis (not just the geeks) gets time to spend on R&D. This means that our customers get the benefit of the latest technology and our team get to do lots of the innovative stuff they love – everyone’s a winner!”
“From saying thank you to each other at the end of the day, to presenting at local user groups, to blogging, to helping run one of the biggest SQL conferences in the world, to raising money for charities close to our hearts, we’re always looking for the best Adatis way to give something back.
Our team know that they’ll get back what they put in – “be the change you seek” as Sir Ben Kingsley once said.”
We have a fantastic, long standing relationship with Microsoft.
We are extremely proud to be a certfied Microsoft Gold Partner for Data Analytics and work with the Microsoft teams in both the UK and US.
We are passionate about technology. We love to learn the new stuff, we love to innovate, we love to perfect the mainstream but above all we love to see technology make a difference.
The sheer breadth of the Microsoft Data Analytics stack is now mind-boggling but we're all over it. We have specialists in the traditional to the modern and can help with strategy, advice, delivery and support. Our projects span the stack and can include:
Knowledge sharing is a huge part of our culture. We've written over 500 blog posts on a diverse range of topics (not just geek stuff), a book on Master
Data Services (read a sample chapter) as well a number of "aren't we great" case studies (The marketing guys made us!).
