Why Codification?

Codification's mission is to help the world's most successful organisations keep pace with rapid technological change by modernising their IT legacy and reducing the time to market for digital products. As a testament to the demand for our services, our team has grown to over 50 staff and over 30 associates. We now offer the skills of expert engineers and technical trainers across the UK, Europe, and the Middle East.


Our Values 

Our people are our competitive advantage, so we value an outstanding employee experience where the best idea wins.

Empowered employees

Our People team is dedicated to supporting our team members' development, engagement, and motivation. We believe in being proactive rather than reactive; where a traditional HR department would hire a replacement when an employee leaves, we reduce turnover by making Codification a great place to work.

Great people have great character

Our people are radically truthful, radically transparent, and deeply committed to our mission. We encourage everyone to speak up and make their voices heard, rather than just follow instructions. We don't let loyalty to individuals stand in the way of the truth and the organisation's well-being.

Shy bairns get nowt

A phrase from the North East of England, meaning those who fail to ask for something, probably won't succeed in obtaining it. We bring problems and disagreements to the surface and solve them well. Codification is an idea of meritocracy where openness is a responsibility; you not only have the privilege to speak up but you are obliged to do so.

Fail fast, reflect well

It is okay to make mistakes, but failing to learn from them is not. In our culture, we don't feel bad about our errors or those of others, and we don't worry about looking good—we are more focused on achieving our goals. We focus on "accurate" and "inaccurate" over "blame" and "credit". We teach and reinforce the merits of mistake-based learning.
