Do you enjoy challenging your comfort zone and learning new skills? Do you like applying innovative thinking and using the latest cutting-edge tech to solve problems? Have you got the ability to take ownership and lead on projects? If yes, keep reading!


Recombix is an early stage, energetic and fast-growing tech startup working on solving interesting technical problems using cutting-edge tech. We pride ourselves on the high quality of our work and our clients love us for it.

We help our clients to solve challenging problems and test the viability of their ideas using real-world data. Often this means writing software, building web and mobile apps, setting up DevOps infrastructure, integrating with internal data sources and external APIs, and a whole bunch more.

Recent client projects have included chatbots built on Node.js and MongoDB to help diagnose allergies in partnership with a FTSE100 company, crowd-sourcing news stories in Africa, and answering customer support queries using NLP. We’ve also built complex web apps using frontend frameworks such as React and Vue.js, hybrid mobile apps using Cordova, and a real-time GPS logistics system for a vintage Routemaster tour operator.

Our latest homegrown product is Voxis, an Automated DevOps platform that takes the concept of “serverless” infrastructure and automates away the complexity of configuring and managing microservice clusters. And this year we are raising our next investment round to take us to the next level.
