Our success is based on innovative technology, high standards and a vibrant mix of talent. We are based in beautiful, 250-year-old converted barn offices in Thelwall. We work hard, but we also have lots of fun with summer and Christmas parties, running club and go-karting, escape rooms, pub quizzes and badminton.

We strive to make DriveWorks a great place to work, and were proud to say that our commitment to our team has been recognised by Investors in People, achieving Bronze accreditation in 2014 and Silver in 2017.

  • We have a significant C# usage; this is the focus for the future of our back-end stack
  • Our principal tech stack is currently based on .NET Framework 4.8, but with the recent release of .NET 6 we are excited to transition and unlock a new wave of capability
  • As a heavy automator of other software including the SOLIDWORKS CAD software and Microsoft Office, a significant part of the original code base is written in Visual Basic .NET
  • Our front-end language of choice is TypeScript; we are huge fans of the type safety as an aide to building robust, scalable software

We might be biased when we say our offices are better than most, but were lucky to be based in beautiful, 250-year-old converted barn offices with lots of spaces to relax and have fun with a lunchtime game of pool, Xboxes, and a beer fridge though the tuck shop is probably the star of the show!
