At Kainos, our people are at the heart of everything. From driving our ambition, to fostering a unique culture, and using technology to make the world a better place - they are responsible for everything we continue to achieve.
In return, we give them all they need to unleash their creativity, reach their full potential and be part of a nurturing environment where they can be themselves and be their best.
Here, your ideas aren't optional. They're expected. Your voice isn't just heard. It's amplified. And your potential isn't just pie in the sky. It's just waiting to be written, read and realised. Each of us has a role in shaping the next extraordinary chapter of the Kainos story.
What part might you play?
For nearly 40 years now, we've understood our people's needs, aspirations and motivations. Their ambitions to push the boundaries of what's possible, their desires to do the best work they can, and their need to leave a legacy that we can be proud of. This is a story you will want to be part of...
Long story short
Since 1986, we've been embracing the digital transformation challenges that others shy away from.
But we measure our success not by commercial results or claims of being the best. Our shared vision is simple, using technology to make people's lives easier and make the world a little better day by day.
We mastered our craft as software engineers on ground-breaking technology projects and quickly began developing our own ideas. Through the years we have innovated and broadened our capabilities.
Today you'll find us transforming how genomics will inform the future of healthcare, streamlining back office functions for big names all over the world, and transforming how entire countries administer everyday tasks to millions of citizens.
We look for talented people who are good at solving problems and want to change the world through technology. If this sounds like you, you've come to the right place.
End with amazing. Then begin again
Here the future is yours, so embrace it. Confidently meeting every challenge in an environment where everyone is championed to be their extraordinary self.
You're never too old to learn or young to express an opinion and this is a philosophy we wholeheartedly believe in. Just ask our CEO who started his story with us as a graduate Software Engineer. In fact, his story is one that is shared by more than half of our executive team - no matter if you are a seasoned pro or a fresh-faced enthusiast your voice matters here.
Our people, their stories
"At Kainos, you’re never too old to learn or too young to express an opinion. It’s an open learning culture that’s engrained in the business. I love the fact that I get to teach and encourage women of all ages to study STEM subjects, whilst learning about emerging and exciting technologies along the way."
Hilary Bannister, Principal Architect, Birmingham
"If you can handle taxi driving in Buenos Aires, you can handle anything! I knew I wanted to be a tech consultant, and with some ambition and determination, I’ve ended up at just the right place. Because to me, that’s what Kainos is all about; we all share a drive to do the best work we can, every day, to serve our clients around the world."
Juan Ocampo, Workday Integrations Consultant,
"I came to Kainos as a Software Developer with ambitions to become a Technical Architect. And that happened – fast! I was given the opportunity to try out for the role, they liked what they saw, and promoted me. Lots of companies talk about ‘shooting for the stars’, but at Kainos, they really mean it. I was told to aim high, I did, and I’m still going!"
Weronika Redlarska, Technical Architect, Gdansk
"To win Apprentice of the Year was a such big deal for me. And thanks to the support and guidance of Kainos, I’ve been able to discover my true calling in Cyber Security. Now I get to pass on what I’ve learnt to others who may be considering the same career. Who knows, I may even influence a future Apprentice of the Year! Wouldn’t that be something?"
James Matchett, Lead Cyber Security Engineer,
"Stories, storytelling and mentoring are my thing. So, I feel a perfect fit for Kainos and the culture we have here. Even better, I now get to spread the word and tell those stories all over the world, helping to create awareness about who we are, what we do and the people we help."
Maddy McTigue, Workday Change and User Adoption Consultant, Indianapolis
"One of the most rewarding experiences of my career was setting the course for the Polish office. It was a big project and I was able to manage it my own way. Sailing is a passion of mine, so I am proud to say I captained the team through this transformation, now it’s plain sailing ahead."
Michal Gorski, Workday Integrations Solution Architect, Gdansk
"Going straight from university into my first job could have been really daunting. But Kainos gave me all the support and learning opportunities I needed to get to where I am now. And as Kainos grows, my career powers up with it (which is pretty fitting for a keen powerlifter!)."
Hannah Smith, Senior Platform Engineer, London
"I work on projects that improve people’s lives. Helping millions of people to access healthcare is a privilege, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. It’s not an easy task, but it makes a difference - and for me, that makes it worthwhile."
Caoimhin Graham, Cloud Practice Technology Lead,
