Escape's take on Big Lemon

Big Lemon are kindred spirits of Escape the City. Fed up with their regular jobs, Owen and Kieran hatched the concept of Big Lemon over a pint. In a pub. Remember those days? Now, Big Lemon is a Wales-based studio creating all sorts of fun, innovative, engaging tech solutions for their wide range of clients. They're also a leader in the movement to use tech for good and with purpose. Small, mighty and tongue firmly in cheek, it's no surprise that they were a frontrunner in the People metric of the Escape 100. Must be something to do with the two gorgeous black labradors in the office!

    We'll contribute towards books, training courses and conferences that help you learn and grow in your role here.

  • Cycle-to-Work

    Though there's not exactly any office to cycle to we are registered under the Cycle-to-Work scheme, so you can buy a bike and accessories tax-free. Cycle to your living room, kitchen or home office instead 👌

  • Equipment

    Choose your own equipment: let us know which tools you need and we’ll do our best to get them for you.

  • Socials

    When the world is back to normal we have team socials once a month. Anything from go-karting, board game nights, dinners, escape rooms and movie nights. During these crazy times we have regular 'care packages' and Zoom Lunches

  • Maternity, paternity and adoption leave

    Well-paid maternity, paternity and adoption leave, which you're eligible for if you join more than 13 weeks before your expected date of childbirth or adoption.

  • Team retreats

    Annual team retreats. A time to get to know each other away from the office. We can't wait for our next getaway (hopefully this year 🤞)!

  • Health insurance

    Private health insurance with Vitality, and paid sick leave (for both your physical and mental health).

  • Regular salary reviews

    In line with a salary framework, to ensure equal pay for equal work and that we recognise and reward when your responsibilities increase.

  • Flexible working

    We're currently 100% remote, and will always have remote options. Whether your child's ill, you're waiting for a package, or you have some deep-focussed work to do, we all work from home (or café) from time to time. We encourage everyone to work from home when you need to.

  • Subs galore!

    Spotify, coffee, tea and plant subscriptions are the norm whilst we endure these crazy times, have an idea for a new sub? Let us know!

  • A mobile on us

    After 12 months of working with us we'll buy a shiny device of your choice!

  • Home office budget

    We'll contribute toward items you need to work from home.

  • Holiday

    25 days’ holiday + Bank holidays + your birthday off a year, and we encourage you to use them all up! It's a marathon, not a sprint.
