Why join Fortium?

Holidays & Flexibility Share Options & Pension Training & Conferences
You will have 23 personal days holidays (increasing to 25 over time), in addition to bank holidays.  5 of these personal days will be reserved for Christmas shut-down, but the other 18 to 20 days you are free to choose.  We believe that the company’s success should be shared with the people who make it happen, which is we have a share option scheme where employees are rewarded with share options for loyalty and contribution. We also provide a 9% pension (5% employee, 4% company). We actively encourage our team to attend conferences, and if you're prepared to do a lightning talk on what you've learned we're happy to pay for it (including accommodation, travel etc). We also train our devs on soft skills, including leadership, management, health & safety, and first aid.
Personal Development Innovation Time Health
As well as training, and conferences, we have a culture of learning where team members are given time to prepare and deliver lightning talks and code workshops.  We also encourage pair programming where developers can share their expertise and work together to solve problems. Friday afternoons are usually set aside for the team to work on developing their skills on any language / tool / idea of their choosing.  As long as it's related to what we do, it's your free time to learn.  We recognise that a healthy workforce is a productive one, which is why we provide free gym membership at Nuffield Health (just around the corner from the offices) and have regular deliveries of fruit.
Transparency & Autonomy Sports & Social Club Travel Opportunities
We have an open-door policy where senior management are approachable and are open to any ideas or initiatives you may have, and if it brings a positive benefit for all then they will work with you to bring it to fruition.

We have our very own majority-funded sports and social club with many team event days (think bowling, white water rafting, go-karts), giving everyone a chance to unwind and have some fun, and on the last Friday of every month is our pizza day.

We attend a variety of shows and exhibitions throughout the year, in the US (mainly Las Vegas, Los Angeles), and Europe (mainly Amsterdam and London) and if you enjoy seeing new places and meeting new people we encourage any member of our team to take part (it’s not just sales and marketing people).
