  • Working knowledge of AWS and Azure services (we use both) and continuous delivery tools.

  • Familiarity with native app development would be a bonus.

Working at idwal

Idwal have a unique environment, blending the essence of a technology start-up with the heritage and market knowledge of a 100 year-old shipping company. On the one hand, we have many of the positives associated with a tech start-up. We work in a fast-paced environment that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, where we both empower and support our people. We're also developing industry changing products using the latest technologies. On the other hand, we don't have the negatives associated with a tech start-up. We're self-funded, we're established in the market, and we're profitable. Furthermore, we have solid and achievable growth targets, along with a global client list that includes leading banks, financial institutions, private equity groups, ship owners, brokers, insurers, and charterers.

We like to think of ourselves as a family, which isn’t surprising when you consider we originated from a 3rd generation Welsh shipping family. We’re friendly and sociable, and regularly get together for team and charity events.

We also value our team. We make every effort to provide an environment where people enjoy coming to work and have the opportunity to thrive and as we have more than doubled our workforce in the last 18 months, there are plenty of opportunities for progression. 



Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, like many businesses, we have been working from home for the last few months. Fortunately for us, we
are able to operate seamlessly at home through the use of modern technology and communication platforms which have allowed us to continue working to the same standard and efficiency as always. We will soon be re-opening our office and will be allowing all employees to take an even more flexible approach to working than usual, combining time in the office with working time at home.
