Careers at BlueOptima

BlueOptima provides industry-leading objective metrics in software development using our proprietary Coding Effort Analytics. We enable global Fortune 500 organisations to deliver better software, faster and at a lower cost. Incorporated in 2007, BlueOptima is a profitable, high-growth independent software company. Our unique technology was initially devised in seminal research carried out at Cambridge University.

What is our culture like? BlueOptima is a company built on transparency, collaboration and accountability. Our mission is to help realise the potential of every individual by creating a transparent and dynamic environment filled with motivated high performers. We are a Unit made up of tenacious, ambitious and hungry individuals, who strive to improve and pull together to achieve our ambitious goals continually. Our company values and genuine family-feel working relationship leads to a working culture of collaboration, learning, autonomy and high performance.

BlueOptima is a globally distributed company with a dynamic and diverse employee base. We currently are a company of 6 office locations, with headquarters in London and additional offices in India, Mexico and the US. A total number of 170+ employees from 22 different nationalities and 20 languages spoken. To keep the culture of togetherness, our multinational teams across our offices regularly join forces for an annual Global meet-up, of which the most recent was held in Cancun, Mexico.

Given that our product measures the effort that teams make as they write software, we are results-oriented and pay a lot of attention to the work we are putting into our jobs – so the work you do will be highly visible and valuable to the whole team.

We offer an attractive balance of flexibility: we are flexible in that our staff tend not to work fixed hours, so you may be able to do the job during hours that best suit you, and even work from home. In the end, it's not about the hours put in but the outcome.
