Introduction

At Metaswitch we pride ourselves in having a working environment that properly showcases individual talent and rewards personal contribution:

  • Challenging work with leading-edge technology in a financially-strong company.
  • Our recruiting standards are high – expect to work with some great people.
  • Offices in prime locations worldwide.
  • Flexible working conditions and a deep company-wide commitment to development and training for everyone.

In a development role, you'll work with the latest technology and make your own contribution to our reputation for industry excellence and outstanding support. Our engineering roles may involve any of our technology solutions from core networking through access switching to the application layer.

Whichever area they work in and wherever they are in the company, all of our team members help to build and strengthen the close, long-term relationships that we have built with our impressive set of customers to support their ambitious strategies. You’ll be joining a serious player in a market that continues to grow and change dramatically.

A vibrant and successful team

Our company is packed with talented and motivated people, creating a vibrant and successful team with excellent inter-personal and communications skills.

We are always interested in hearing from experienced and bright individuals. Whether you come from a technical background or not, we offer great opportunities to develop your career. The world is changing. Be part of it at Metaswitch.


Training and development

Tailored career development

We take pride in focusing a huge amount of our resource on the career development of all our people.

We'll make every effort to understand your career plans and particular talents, and help you to tailor your role, whether it is exclusively technical (such as development or customer support) or non-technical (such as sales, marketing or central services).

You will work closely with your manager to produce an individual training plan, tailored to your experience and designed to meet your specific needs and objectives. In addition to the benefit of on-the-job training from our numerous internal technical experts (many of whom are world leaders in their specific area), we also have

  • in-house seminars covering every aspect of the company's operation
  • detailed technical seminars covering specific projects and business areas
  • training tasks designed to improve presentation and communication skills
  • external courses and conferences on management development and technical subjects.

Build the career you want

Our career structure and culture are designed to encourage employees to progress quickly into senior positions, if that is what they want. However, if you would rather stay in one role for a longer period, that can also be accommodated. Our flexible approach to your development allows you to choose the pace and direction of your career.


Rewards and benefits

Compensation

Salary for experienced employees is assessed according to individual circumstances – and is always very competitive. We also offer a range of benefits which combine those you would expect from a modern, well-managed organisation with one or two specials of our own.

Performance related bonus plan and share plan

The company is privately owned partly by top-tier investment firms Francisco Partners and Sequoia Capital, and partly by the Employee Benefit Trust (EBT), which provides a performance related bonus plan, equitably rewarding employees for their contribution and encouraging long-term commitment. In addition, the company operates a generous employee share plan which enables all our people to benefit from the increased value of the company.

Other benefits

Along with an excellent pension scheme, you'll enjoy life cover, health insurance and private medical insurance, short and long-term disability insurance and a generous allocation of paid annual vacation.

Morale and team events

We have team and office morale events with a very generous budget. Activities can vary from drinks, bowling or go-karting with your team mates, to a day or weekend away with a larger group (where Center Parcs, Paris and Vilnius have been some recent destinations).

Sports activities

We have corporate membership of the local tennis, golf and health clubs near some office locations. You’ll also have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of other sports and activities – including football, badminton, bridge, board games and tag rugby, to name but a few.
