Amazing things happen when people believe they can

Thanks to our people, Kainos is a very special organisation – one we can be proud to be a part of

A culture that brings the best out in everyone

Our culture is a special one. It’s shaped by our values and the behaviours we show every day, making sure our people feel supported to be the best version of themselves at work.  It’s what makes Kainos unique.   


Our open and inclusive culture creates a modern workplace where people feel empowered, connected and supported to flourish and grow. Proud to be one of the leading global companies to work for, we embrace and promote diversity, personal fulfilment and development. Being part of the Kainos team means being encouraged, challenged, rewarded and fulfilled.

United by our values

Everyone at Kainos signs up to actively demonstrate the same key values. This helps us create an environment of success, where our people work together to meet the biggest challenges – and enjoy themselves along the way. 

We look for better ways to do things. We use our imagination to find fresh solutions to problems and turn innovation into effective change.
As part of a united team, we share information, knowledge and experience. We consciously listen to others and keep an open mind.
Determined to achieve our personal and team goals, we overcome obstacles to get the job done, and take pride in upholding Kainos’ reputation.
We’re transparent in dealing with customers and colleagues, truthful in word and deed, and constructive when giving or receiving feedback.
Treating others how we would like to be treated, we support, encourage and respect everyone we work with, colleagues and customers alike.

Building a truly modern workplace

We embrace flexible, activity-based working, equipping our people with everything they need to be successful and feel connected, wherever in the world they work from. Our offices are designed to encourage collaboration and creativity. And as we continue to create a workplace of the future, we build deep and successful partnerships with our customers, wherever the team are located.

Our values make Kainos such a great place to work. Everyone from new recruits right up to the CEO really lives our values. And we’re rewarded for it, too – in end of year reviews and also through our Recognition scheme which allows us to nominate our colleagues for awards – anything from cinema tickets right up to £250.
