Culture and career opportunities

Company Background

IDTechEx provides business to business events, market research reports and consulting in high growth technology areas, namely printed electronics, RFID, thin film photovoltaics and smart packaging. Founded in 1999, the company has never made a loss and has grown substantially year on year. It seeks to provide impartial analysis of the trends in these technology sectors. In 2006 it won the UK's most prestigious award for international trade. The company has most operations based in the UK. IDTechEx moved its HQ to Boston, USA in 2007 reflecting the territory where most of its clients are based. In 2008 IDTechEx opened a German office based in Chemnitz, Germany.

IDTechEx is intensely international in scope, monitoring RFID in over 110 countries for example and employing technical graduates from far afield. In addition, many best in class technical and sales professionals assist the company.

Culture and values

Our staff values include ethical business practice and a strong respect for each other. The company operates on a relatively flat structure, allowing staff from all divisions to input ideas to the highest level. IDTechEx sells on quality before price in all its activities and it seeks long term mutuality of benefit with all stakeholders. IDTechEx believes in suitable staff training and maintains excellence in professional acumen in all our activities.

Our passionate staff are happy to make themselves available across time zones and on weekends for clients. The company has regular social days and events with staff, and is environmentally conscious, conducting recycling and energy saving schemes - from car sharing to efficient equipment use. This all results in the company having exceptionally low numbers of staff turnaround.

International reach for the best expertise

IDTechEx has employed many staff internationally, supporting working visas where needed. Staff are from the USA, UK, Germany, Spain, Poland, South Africa, New Zealand, Russia, China and Japan, for example. This has allowed us to cherry pick the best skills internationally and gives the company a diverse portfolio of cultures and languages.
