About Ensoft Ltd

Established in 1997, Ensoft are a software company of around 70 engineers that specialises in developing all aspects of networking software. They write the cutting-edge software that runs in the core of the internet, to keep the world connected.

Based in Harpenden, the company attributes its success to the exceptional level of knowledge and expertise within the team, the calibre of their annual graduate recruits and the dedication of the team to the training and personal development of everyone within the company.

One example of how the business aims to engage both its staff and the local community is by encouraging employees to run coding clubs at local schools, in addition to offering work experience placements for children looking for software engineering experience.

The company is led by Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Turnbull, who spends as much time as possible talking to employees and gathering feedback to help shape the evolution of the company.
