There were two principles that fuelled our work:
Whilst software can manage complex systems, software development need not be complicated.
Success in software development relies on transparency, trust, genuine dialogue and deep collaboration.
These principles still inform how we work today. And we don’t work around the edges of businesses. We focus on software integral to the daily functioning of systems. This is what we mean by business critical software.
We've worked hard to create a culture that enables our clients to access technology solutions simply and effectively, as well as our people to thoroughly enjoy a challenging and interesting work environment.
We’re big enough to deliver integral software projects for industry leaders, but foster a culture and community that still deters from being another cog in the wheel. Everyone is valued here. Everyone has a say.
They are a key business partner because of their high-quality work and its impact on our business. Our organisation believes that quality is key, and we’ve found that Audacia buys 100% into that. They always try to meet our requirements, no matter how challenging.
Audacia have rapidly established themselves as a key partner within our Digital Engineering Function, providing much needed expertise and capability to enable our Test Engineering service to exceed expectations. Each and every person who has joined our teams from Audacia have totally immersed themselves, continually collaborating, driving innovation and earning the trust of all the other team members. On top, they are some of the most genuine and nicest people you could possibly wish to work with!
There’s no question they were the best choice to work with. One of our key factors was availability. Since we moved to them, the site has had zero downtime. In the last month, we haven’t had even a second of unplanned maintenance. That’s exactly the reliability and sustainability we wanted.
From start to finish the working relationship between Audacia’s team and ours was productive from the iterative development approach, meaning we worked in shorter time frames but increased levels of communication to ensure all updates were reviewed quicker. Audacia’s end platform delivered on all aspects.
Audacia created a commodities trading platform that meets our immediate needs today and has the capability to scale in line with our future business plans. We continue to work collaboratively together to further optimise a number of business functions through automation.
Remove unnecessary complexity, don't over-engineer solutions.

I think the best word to describe Audacia is collaborative. Everybody works together, regardless of what projects they’re working on individually.
Cameran Pullan, Senior Test Engineer
Two things stand out for me. First, I love the diversity of projects. Moving on to different challenges regularly is refreshing, whether it’s a new language, framework or problem to solve. Second, the office atmosphere is something I really love.
Rachel Flynn, Senior Software Engineer
One thing I really like about Audacia is that they look for people who can fit within their teams and within the Audacia culture. They hire nice people, first and foremost. This culture has definitely shined through with every project that I’ve worked on or any person that I’ve spoken to. Everyone is really approachable and friendly.
