The Company

You spend around eight hours a day using digital devices, and fork out over £1,500 every year on the digital market - broadband connections, mobile tariffs, upgrades and so on - so it makes sense to do your homework before you sign up to any costly services. BUT doing your homework takes time and, to many of us, is frankly, pretty dull.

That is where we come in.

The Decision Tech mission is to help people find the very best communications and entertainment services

Our ambitions are two-fold:

Firstly, we have a crucial role in helping our customers make the most of their digital lives, from connectivity to entertainment packages and data management, it should be personalised and simple so you find the right solutions for you.

Secondly, we connect our customers with service and hardware providers. We pride ourselves on introducing the right customers, at the right price. We’ve helped our customers to save hundreds of millions of pounds (or euros for our Spanish and German customers) - a fact we are pretty proud of.

We are obsessed with performance, we want to match every single customer with the right provider, and, as we only get paid if our matches work we have an extra incentive to get it right, every time.

We have four brands based in our Holborn office; broadbandchoices which deals with the UK market; schlaubi which is our German website; sellmymobile and comparemymobile are brands in the UK for the recycling of mobile phones.

Why work for Decision Tech?

This is a fantastic opportunity that would suit someone who wants to drive their career forward and develop quickly as the business, and team, grows.

Dear recruiters,

Thanks so much for checking out our vacancies page. While we do work with recruitment agencies, and appreciate all the amazing staff they have helped us to find, we are VERY particular about who we work with.


Here are our rules, and while we like to break the rules as much as the next revolutionary business, there will be no deviating from THESE rules...none:

Rule 1: We are entirely pro-active in our agency selection - every single agency and person we work with is either already known to us, or someone who comes with a personal introduction from people we know and trust.

Rule 2: To say we are not fans of receiving cold calls from people who have disregarded rule 1 is an understatement. You can email us, and we promise we’ll read it, but….

Rule 3: If you have emailed us, and we are interested, we'll certainly be in touch. If you don't hear back, then on this occasion our paths will not be crossing.

Thanks
Decision Tech
