Why work for us?


Not just another cog in the machine

At Bright Ascension, we really value each individuals contribution. We are a small company which is very fast-paced and innovative. This translates into each team member having a significant influence on the director of the company and the software we create. As if that wasn't enough, we are also employee-owned giving our team a tangible stake in the company.


Work/Life Balance

We offer a range of benefits such as flexible working arrangements and 36 days of holiday a year so our team can really make their jobs work around their lives and enjoy some well-earned downtime.


An exciting industry in a great location

Working in the space industry certainly comes with bragging rights- it's one of the most innovative and exciting sectors out there. Small companies often feature in large multi-national projects; at Bright Ascension, it is more than likely you will see software you have written flying on a European Space Agency (ESA) project.

Closer to home, our largest office is in Edinburgh with a stunning view of Edinburgh Castle right outside our windows.
