Work with us

At Nomical we pride ourselves on our creative and scalable solutions. From cloud to connectivity to collaboration, we develop and support a spectrum of bespoke, cutting edge tech across a broad range of industries. Founded in 2006, we continue to grow and innovate. At the end of the day, we love modern tech and we love making our customers happy.

What it’s like to work here

We love what we do and embrace constant change, even if that means breaking our own mould (especially when it means we get to tinker with new toys!)

We’re a diverse bunch with many different backgrounds, interests and perspectives. We believe this is what makes us strong as a team and ultimately successful.

Our HQ is in one of Manchester’s newest buildings, No.1 Spinningfields. It’s a vibrant office with plenty of break out areas so you can find your ideal work environment, whether that’s at a desk or on a sofa. We even have a barista on site for all your re-fuelling needs.

If you consider yourself a doer, an eager learner and you are kind and thoughtful in everything you do, then we could be a great fit and we want to hear from you.
