If you are smart, and good at what you do we want to hear from you. Thanks for reading our job advert. We’ve tried to bring to life what its like working as part of Spica Technologies Ltd but we do so much that it’s tough to distil into a single page. We also recognise that sometimes people can be put off applying for a job unless they think they match every requirement. Don’t let that hold you back. If you are excited about the role and think you can do much of what we have described but aren’t sure if you are quite who were looking for… give it a try. Nothing ventured nothing gained!
