We have a fantastic office in Basingstoke complete with a fully stocked fridge, catered lunch and snacks. However, like most tech businesses, we are fully remote and intend to remain that way until social distancing measures are over in the UK. When we return to the office, we will take the best bits of remote working but also foster face to face collaboration, with the intention that all employees will be in the office at least twice per week. Of course, if you prefer to be office based, you will be able to work there full time.
Whilst InfoSum HQ is Basingstoke, we also have a London office for sales and product operations colleagues as well as a growing presence in New York, reflecting the momentum we are gathering in the US.
