BJSS is one of those informal, forward thinking technology companies you have been searching for. You will not be stifled by large corporate processes, therefore able to be creative and challenge when needed. Our teams have created award-winning deliveries using pioneering technologies because we look to them to use and develop their expertise, not force them into a company mould. We also have a lot of fun along the way!

Working within a team on the end-to-end delivery of software projects for our clients, our developers use industry best-practice techniques to design, implement and then deliver solutions.
Projects may be delivered using our BJSS Enterprise Agile approach, or the clients preferred method, and may be a pure BJSS team or an integrated BJSS/client team.
Clients turn to us for development-based consultancy services such as the design and development of their IT systems, reviewing their existing technology stack and providing strategic input for future extensions to their IT systems. These are both advisory and in project delivery capacity at client sites.
Engagements may be delivered from our own offices or at one of our client office locations – an element of travel is part of the job.
