Working at Sigma

We love to help people, through our work, to be healthier and happier, and to make a positive impact on society. Flexible working is one of our core values and a good work-life balance is what we aim for, always.  

We are inclusive, supportive and our team is full of people who like to spend their time making things  digital or otherwise  that work better for everyone.

How we contribute to our community

Sigma is always keen to measure the social impact of our work, support emerging talent and share some of our thinking and experience to help people. Our team has supported many community initiatives in recent years.

We helped to establish UX Mentors with MMU and NUX, we co-organised the Manchester Homeless Hack, we continue to support Manchester Digital's Teach Too and Digital Futures programmes, and we regularly run student design days to coincide with International Women’s Day and World Usability Day.

We’re also very proud to be the digital partner of Diversity Role Models, a UK charity tackling homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying in schools.

Camp Digital

Camp Digital is an inspirational conference that brings together the digital, design and UX communities for a series of talks and workshops exploring the latest thinking in our industry.
