We’re looking for talented people

We like people.

We particularly like bright, talented people who try to get the right stuff done, who love working in teams, and who are always striving to learn and improve.

If it sounds like you, we want to hear from you.

We’re successful, we continue to grow, and we’ve created a culture at Red Gate that has made us the best place to work in Cambridge. (We’re not just saying that: we’ve got the awards and a huge bunch of happy people to prove it.)

Our latest vacancies are listed on the right.

If what you do isn’t there, and you’re still interested in working at Red Gate, get in touch with us anyway. This is the software business. Things change very quickly.


A note for recruitment agencies

We prefer to hire people directly, but we do have a preferred supplier list for when we'd like a helping hand. We'll be in touch if we need you. We don't have time to take cold calls from recruitment agencies – sorry!

Step 1
Step 1. Application

Step one is your application. So write a letter and upload it on the page for the job you’re interested in. Tell us about yourself, your skills and experience, and talk about why you’d like to work at Red Gate. Include a CV, or a link to your LinkedIn page, and if you'd like to show some of your work, attach your portfolio or point us to Stack Overflow or GitHub.

Step 2
Step 2. Assessment

We’ll acknowledge your application straight away, review it and keep you updated on your progress. We might also email an assessment to complete, or invite you for a brief telephone interview. If we don’t think you’re suitable, we’ll inform you – and tell you why. We won’t let you down, we’ll try and help you.

Step 3
Step 3. 1st Interview

Step three is an interview in our Cambridge office. We’ll talk about your work history, your covering letter or video, and any assessments you’ve completed. You might also be asked to do some work-based tests and, if you’re applying for a technical role, expect technical questions – we love talking tech.

Step 4
Step 4. 2nd Interview

The second interview typically lasts two hours. You’ll be talking to different people, you may well meet people you’ll be working with, and we’ll allow time for you to ask questions. We don’t have a dress code at Red Gate, by the way, so dress in whatever makes you comfortable.

Step 1
Step 5. Offer

If we think you’d be great at Red Gate, we’ll make an offer and iron out any details like relocation issues. If we don’t think you’ll fit in right away, we’ll tell you why. Some people have taken our advice, boned up their knowledge and come back a year later and got a job. It helps.

Why is Red Gate called Red Gate?

Why is Red Gate called Red Gate?

Red Gate is named after the street where the co-founder of the company, Neil Davidson, once lived in Florence, Italy. (Which is a darn sight more sensible than being called Google because someone made a spelling mistake.)
