Careers at Decent

We are steadily growing because our clients love what we do for them. We need bright, inquisitive, trustworthy people. Although we do plenty of software development (mainly using FileMaker), we are fundamentally people who solve business problems. So not all our roles require a background in software development.

Our team and culture

What’s it like at Decent?

We are a relatively small team – everyone knows everyone else. We are friendly, down to earth and open, and everyone has a voice that is heard. We all enjoy being part of a close-knit team. 

Decent is a growing business, but we make sure we grow steadily and thoughtfully so we keep our culture intact. Because we’re growing, there are opportunities to be involved in the business at higher levels and more quickly than in most larger organisations. 

If you love a challenge or love FileMaker, we want to hear from you.

We care about the quality of your life  

We take active steps to help our people live a happy and fulfilled life. These include supporting the mental health of our employees, using personality tools to work better together, and making sure our people earn a living wage that covers the real cost of living. 

We have signed the Mindful Employer charter and we help our team manage and overcome any mental health issues they may face. We make sure everyone in our team knows they can talk about any work stresses, pressures or difficulties they are experiencing.

We use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) to understand the different personalities in our team, which helps us work better together and drives our personal and professional development. 

We are also a living wage employer and a member of the Living Wage Foundation, which means we commit to paying the real living wage – or more – to all our employees. The real living wage is the amount that the Living Wage Foundation calculates people need to cover the real cost of living – an amount that’s higher than both the minimum wage and the government’s national living wage.
