Technologies on IN-PART are provided by our university partners, which include Cambridge, Oxford, Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester to mention a few in the UK, as well as international universities such as UPenn, Queensland, LMU Munich and many more worldwide.

OUR PURPOSE

Solutions don’t come ready-made. We believe brilliant connections can solve real-world problems. We match research genius with decision-makers and industries striving for a greater positive impact.

OUR VISION

Our goal is to enable connections from around the world to match research genius with industry on a level playing field. IN-PART has an advanced matching platform and curates an international community of the brightest minds and decision-makers built on insight and dialogue.

You’ll also have your own space should you wish to use it more regularly (our current devs choose a mixture of home and office working).

The working environment is relaxed and professional. We’re all here to do a job but recognise the need to let off steam from time to time. Our all expenses paid twice yearly meetups are a great opportunity to meet new people, try a new experience and generally have some fun. We also have regular team lunches, after work beers and one-to-one catch ups.

Benefits

  • £40-60k based on experience
  • Work from home or at our great location in the heart of Sheffield
  • Free choice of equipment – choose the best tech for the job
  • 30 days annual holiday (inc. bank holidays) + your birthday off
