Word from the top

We founded hedgehog lab with a purpose to create a place that empowers people to do the best work of their life. Unlike many other tech companies, our purpose & mission is to be a great place to work. It's great to finally receive that official recognition of what many of our team, past & present have known.

Whilst we are proud of the scores we have achieved, our ambition is to never rest on our laurels. Through a combination of employee experience platforms, weekly town halls, and talking to our team, we will continue to strive to get better every single day and learn from the feedback including addressing issues that our team have raised.
