Best Company
to work for

Named after the mythical giant who carved out the Avon Gorge in Bristol, software company Ghyston trains most of its developers from scratch. It says clients always comment on how bright, fast and capable every person on the team is.

The bespoke software company that builds systems for businesses was founded by husband-and-wife team Emily and Ric Hill, in 2012. The business began with a few staff and now has around 50, but says it hasn't lost its culture of excellence, innovation, collaboration and plenty of fun.

Ghyston is strong on family values and offers a supportive environment for people to learn, grow, and deliver their best. Its in-house recruitment and training process means it develops its talent. Instead of testing for experience and knowledge, it looks for the raw ability to problem solve, learn and engage.

The company is unusual as it isn't tied to one technology or sector, which gives it a wide knowledge base to solve problems and gives everyone the chance to learn continually.

Its culture is important to Ghyston, and time, money and thought is invested in it. Think great perks and brilliant social events, in an environment of trust and openness.

Ghyston writes quality, future-proof, robust code. It says its "brilliant team and well-honed processes make it easy for us to guarantee quality on the software that we deliver". Its goal is to be the technical powerhouse for the South-West region, supporting initiatives that aid diversity in the sector.
