We can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas, although we have been spending quite a bit of time at the Manchester Christmas markets! It’s been an interesting year for us, with both ups and downs, but we’re finishing it on a high.
It’s been a year of big developments and changes for us as a business. In the beginning of the year, we set up a new gaming division to focus on our gambling clients and strengthen our position as an expert in the online gambling industry. This meant expanding our team and widening expertise to be able to support different projects.
Over the year, we grew by over 30 people. We could no longer fit in our office at the Sharp Project. Luckily, we found a shiny new office in Steam Packet House in Manchester city centre and moved here in November. We’re really pleased with it and it’s pretty handy with Christmas markets being on our doorstep! We’re still recruiting, so take a look at our Careers page.
We had a great year working on some fantastic projects. We completed rebranding for Medichecks, created new apps for Sykes Cottages and Wine & Spirit Education Trust, as well as continuing development and support for many of our existing clients. We’ve got some pretty exciting projects lined up and we’ll be announcing them early next year!
We were also pretty excited to be named among the top 100 tech companies in Greater Manchester and our Sykes Cottages app being nominated for the Best App at Northern Digital Awards!
We’d like to thank all our clients, partners, employees and suppliers for working with us and providing support. We look forward to reaching new highs in the new year and moving upwards towards creating bigger and better products!
The team at Degree 53 would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
