A solid team,
built from trust


We highly value our developers and support our team with the best tools, great benefits and a balanced community of passionate and generous colleagues to work with. At First Factory, developers are not coding monkeys. We work with clients that respect our developers as the skilled problem solvers they are. We advise our clients on best practices, introducing coding standards and implementing updated technologies. This allows us to contribute, not just to a client's codebase, but to the success of their product and company. It also means that our team gets to work with the latest technologies and frameworks. As a result, developers at First Factory gain more experience in a year than developers at other companies in twice the time.

Encouraging Balance

Encouraging Balance


We don’t believe that great work happens by accident. It takes persistence, planning and a company culture that encourages the best in everyone while supporting the team both in and outside the workplace.


What happens outside the office is just as important as what happens inside, which is why First Factory encourages the use of flex-time, work-from-home and other family-friendly policies. We regularly get together outside of the office for fun activities, including bowling, rock climbing and the annual beach weekend in November.
