Monthly social events

Our 'monthly mingle' as it's come to be known, follows our monthly whole-company meeting.

It usually involves food, cakes, beer, cider, soft drinks, the odd silly game, a great laugh, and more often than not a visit to a great local bar...for more food and more drinks, which inevitably leads to more silly games, and a few more laughs!


We are absolutely not a typical office with people sitting at desks from nine to five! You can choose the physical environment which suits you best; kicking back on the Chesterfield sofa, our stand-up workbench, cosy booths or hot desks.

We also provide flexible working hours for taking your car into the garage or a child to nursery – so long as you deliver what’s required. And we are happy for you to work from home some of the time too. Whether you prefer hubbub, or peace and quiet, we’re here to help you achieve.

Cycle scheme

Many of us in the office cycle to work, and when we're not at our desks building websites and apps, we're out on the local trails and hills on our mountain bikes.

We run the CycleScheme to give everyone an incentive to get out and ride their bike!

A contributory pension scheme

We pay in when you pay in!

What more can we say about that? If you enjoy working here as much as the rest of us do, you’ll still be here when you hit retirement age, so you might as well start thinking about that pension now, and Hydrant can help you start building that nest egg.

Child care vouchers

Many of us are parents, and we know it can cost a small fortune to look after the little ones.

Hydrant offer the childcare voucher scheme, which means you have a little extra cash in your pocket each month...but then that probably goes on the children too…

Company-wide gross profit scheme

Working with us is an investment, we have a company-wide gross profit scheme set up, so the more money the company makes, the bigger your share! And what’s not to like about that?

Some of the technologies we use.

Join us, build awesome sites, apps and more with our growing team.

Say hello to the best place to work. We're not kidding, we even won an award for it!

Hydrant Office
Our Carlisle Office

Hydrant is part of the Upbeat Group (comprising the Upbeat Productions and Hydrant brands). We are a digital development agency with teams spread between a head office in central London and a regional office in Carlisle. We create and support websites, apps, frameworks and prototypes using a range of technologies.

Technologically agnostic but with specialist skills in Drupal, Symfony and Ruby on Rails, we are able to draw all of our skills together into a single unified project methodology that thrives on collaboration.

We deliver world class digital experiences for the likes of Which? and Haynes as well as building websites for major organisations. We are also delighted to build close relationships with regional organisations such as Tullie House and the Cumberland Building Society.

We are an expanding organisation with ISO Accreditation, a RAR (Recommended Agency Register) member, and sponsor of Drupal Camps across Europe.
