Pufferfish – a growing global market-leader

Pufferfish is an award-winning creative technology company with more than seven years’ expertise at the cutting edge of digital display systems.

From its Edinburgh base, the team develops and supplies innovative and unique multimedia platforms to a global client base.

Its world-renowned spherical display systems – otherwise known as PufferSpheres - can be found across an eclectic mix of venues and businesses, from museums, science centres and research institutes, to B2B trade shows, live music events and on BBC TV.

Pufferfish’s state-of-the-art patented technology, whose USP is its 360-degree capability, also lends itself to experiential branding and innovative advertising for forward-thinking businesses who want to establish a competitive edge in today’s fast-moving digital environment.

Pufferfish – a growing global market-leader.

Pufferfish has delivered more than 140 projects across 23 different countries in the last seven years and has worked with some of the world’s most prestigious brands, such as NASA, the BBC, Sony, Audi, IBM, Budweiser, Eurovision and even Coldplay.

 It’s now looking to double its workforce as it prepares to increase its global footprint and conquer new markets.

Pufferfish as an employer

Pufferfish has an excellent track record of retaining and developing its team – giving each and every employee the opportunity to develop their skills and carve out their own careers and businesses in the digital services sector.

Its ethos is to encourage ongoing research and discovery to help shape the entrepreneurs and creatives of tomorrow.

Since many of its product ideas were a result of experimental ‘play’, the company encourages its team to work hard and play hard.

Pufferfish perks

Pufferfish offers the chance to be part of a close-knit digital team where no two days are the same.

As well as benefiting from real career progression in what is a rapidly-expanding business, Pufferfish employees have been known to brush shoulders and even share the stage with industry leaders and other amazing people, including the likes of Professor Brian Cox.

The company culture is fresh and dynamic with a relaxed policy of working core hours which fit in around other daily commitments.

It’s also a great opportunity to live and work in the heart of Edinburgh, which was recently voted the UK’s best place to live – thanks, in part, to its striking architecture, stunning scenery, vibrant nightlife and world-famous festival.

With the company expanding into North America and the Far East, there are even opportunities to travel internationally, as well as to industry-specific conferences and events, for those who are intrepid and ambitious enough.

Pufferfish is committed to helping its employees develop their CVs and organises formal training to boost skills and qualifications.

Long-term, the company is happy to support its people in developing and taking their own products to market.
