    Andrew Chalmers
    MD, Ballard Chalmers

    I note that it is a year this month that I started working with you. The team, the projects and the overall support I’ve received have been great. I really enjoy working with you all.

    Associate Senior Software Engineer – Ballard Chalmers

    I like working at Ballard Chalmers because as a small-size company, I can see the processes and internal working of the company and get to work directly with the owners and top management.

    Finance & Operations Manager – Ballard Chalmers

    I enjoy working at BC for the flexibility it gives me to balance my job and my charitable work. I am allowed to self-manage and given the responsibility of getting my job done.

    Marketing Coordinator – Ballard Chalmers

    First and foremost I value the high level of trust BC afford to us to design and implement software, and choose the best tools for the job. Also I enjoy working with a variety of clients on some challenging projects. Lastly their progressive and flexible working environment is a great benefit especially in recent times of unprecedented change.

    Associate Senior Software Engineer – Ballard Chalmers

    I feel I have grown since working for BC, in my ability to manage the strategy, plans and day-to-day parts of my job. It is not an industry I expected to work in but it has turned out to be very rewarding.

    Marketing Coordinator – Ballard Chalmers

    Working at Ballard Chalmers is fantastic for one on one support, giving you the opportunity to have tailored learning.  Each day is diverse with the opportunity to work on a cross-section of projects in parallel.

    Project Manager – Ballard Chalmers

    I can’t believe a year has gone by already! I am looking forward to many more working for this wonderful company.

    Project Manager – Ballard Chalmers

    I started as a Support Manager became a Project Manager and now I am the Finance and Operations Manager. I am not just an employee, I don’t feel like it is a job where I just do the day’s work and leave, I am a part of the company.

    Finance & Operations Manager – Ballard Chalmers

    The best thing about working at Ballard Chalmers is that I am working with professionals who are at the top of their game, and everyone is fully focussed on ensuring we always do the very best for our clients.

    Delivery Manager – Ballard Chalmers

    It’s great to feel appreciated but equally it’s working with people who really understand how to run software projects and build great software (and are really good at it!) that makes this particular engagement stand out amongst all the others.
