Unique IQ is an award-winning tech company with a strong sense of purpose. Working predominantly within the care sector, we make innovative software systems that help our customers deliver the best possible care to people who need it. Growing rapidly, we are seeking out highly-skilled, driven, big-hearted people to join our forward-thinking team.
Our Managing Director, David Lynes, set-up Unique IQ because he felt things could be done differently. Back in 2003, he saw a way that technology could be used to help businesses manage their remote workforces more efficiently, whilst still being affordable, particularly for SMEs.
Fast forward to the present day, and our technology is now an integral part of the operations of hundreds of care and cleaning businesses, helping them to achieve outstanding results. Read more about David's story.
Unique IQ's technology is shaking up the way things are done in care - and it's being noticed. Our most recent accolades have included:
- Best Management Software Supplier to the care industry, 2020
- Best Technology, Data or Software Product for home care, 2020
- 'Innovation in Health Tech' nominee, 2020
- Birmingham Business of the Year, 2019

Unique IQ received venture capital funding from Midven in 2018 which put us on an ambitious growth trajectory - tripling our headcount, doubling our turnover and giving us the ability to attract major new clients.
But it's not just growth at a company level. There are plenty of opportunities to work your way up at Unique IQ - in fact several long-standing, trusted members of our development team (like Bruno here) started out as apprentices.
Some of the benefits of working for Unique IQ include:
- remote and flexible working opportunities
- lovely offices surrounded by rolling countryside
- cycle to work scheme
- all the tea & good coffee you can drink
- regular socials, including the legendary Fat Friday
- Perkbox: discounts, wellbeing and recognition
Our core values are very important to us, so we take that into serious consideration when we recruit. We are looking for people who are a good match for our purpose, ethos and values, as well as being great at what they do.
Typically, there will be a short first round interview over Zoom, followed by a more in-depth second interview with two members of our leadership team, face-to-face if possible. If it's looking good, we'll ask you to complete a working-style questionnaire, which gives us an indication of how you're likely to interact with the rest of the team. After that, if everybody's happy, we'll make you an offer.
Our team is a blend of remote and office-based working, keeping in touch via Slack and Zoom. Each department holds a daily stand-up and we all get together for a full team catch-up once a week.
Using the Scrum framework, our engineering team runs on two weekly sprints, with the standard estimations, reviews and retrospectives.
