Our people, their stories

"At Kainos, I get to work on amazing projects. Developing new software and using the latest tech means no two days are the same. I’m always learning and getting to put a fresh new spin on things. Just like when I play my favourite sport, Ultimate Frisbee…mind your heads!"
Likkan Chung, Software Engineer, Birmingham
Image of a person with the text: with every opportunity I go from strength to strength
"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
Image of  a person with the text: winning at my job in more ways than one
"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, Belfast

Image of a person with the text: so far my Kainos story has been a real page turner
"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."
