  • We are innovators, creators, developers, designers — inspired by our work that connects talented people with employers

    Our market-leading career technology boosts engagement, provides deeper insight and drives more revenue.

  • Life at Madgex is good

    We all enjoy what we do and do it well. We’re always growing – the team, the business, the products we provide and the markets we reach. It’s an exciting time to be a Madgexian – there’s a determined focus on innovation and creativity - finding new ways to make life easier and more successful for our customers.

    We’re very much a collection of humans – not employees, or members of staff, or (the worst) resource. We’re people and we’re treated like people. With a heavy emphasis on learning and development and the budget to match, we’re truly into personal growth. Come and grow with us. 

    • Madgex isn’t only my workplace, it’s somewhere that cares about my health and well-being as well as my day-to-day life outside of work. The benefits such as Perkbox, Simply Health and our office fruit baskets allow me to live my life, enabling me to save money when I can and feel at ease by the presence of the Healthcare package provided for us.
