Every single person was so kind, helpful, and welcoming. I felt right at home here. Within a couple of days , I was already doing some simple tasks to contribute to the company, so I felt quite valued at OCC very quickly.OCC has a very relaxed and stress-free work environment which is actively promoted by all employees. This is helped by the almost flat structure of the company, as you are free to drop a message and chat to anyone in the company without any barriers. The fortnightly company lunches are another major plus as they allowed me to sit shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most senior figures within the company, such as the Managing Director, and casually talk about anything.Overall, despite only being here for just over a month, I really enjoy being at OCC. I understand why so many people who join OCC just do not want to leave. This company is o
ne-of-a-kind.”Cian joined us in June 2021 as a Graduate Software Developer with a 2:1 MSc in Computing from the University of Sheffield:“OCC is a great place to work!
