We have a pretty unique culture here at Snowflake. We encourage collaboration and openness throughout the company…and that definitely starts with our office.

Everyone works in one large open plan office, with no cubicles and certainly no offices for the likes of our founders! Our office space is 2/3’s collaborative, 1/3 desk space and has a pretty cool design. Our open culture doesn’t just stop there, through our company quarterly meetings we share all with every member of the team. After the quarterly we always do something social together: roller-disco, kayaking, F1 simulators, pub quiz, ghost walks and bake off’s to name but a few. Our culture comes from the unique mix of staff from over 10 different nationalities. We’re definitely proud of what we’ve built to date and our culture is constantly evolving.


It all started back in 2001 when former Ordnance Survey colleagues Ian Painter and Eddie Curtis took the plunge to set up Snowflake. With a passion for software development and geospatial data the guys wanted to build a techy company to develop software tools that enable data exchange. From day one the vision has always been to develop generic commercial off-the-shelf software. We are providing enterprise data exchange software and an award winning cloud platform to Aviation organisations across the world.

From just two techies the company has grown into a truly international business with offices in the UK and the USA, maintained its diverse and vibrant culture, and is still building cutting edge software.
