    The Company
    You spend around eight hours a day using digital devices, and fork out over £1,500 every year on the digital market - broadband connections, mobile tariffs, upgrades and so on - so it makes sense to do your homework before you sign up to any costly services. BUT doing your homework takes time and, to many of us, is frankly, pretty dull.

    That is where we come in.

    The Decision Tech mission is to help people find the very best communications and entertainment services

    Our ambitions are two-fold:

    Firstly, we have a crucial role in helping our customers make the most of their digital lives, from connectivity to entertainment packages and data management, it should be personalised and simple so you find the right solutions for you.

    Secondly, we connect our customers with service and hardware providers. We pride ourselves on introducing the right customers, at the right price. We’ve helped our customers to save hundreds of millions of pounds (or euros for our Spanish and German customers) - a fact we are pretty proud of.

    We are obsessed with performance, we want to match every single customer with the right provider, and, as we only get paid if our matches work we have an extra incentive to get it right, every time.

    We have three brands based in our Holborn office; broadbandchoices which deals with the UK market, comparaiso which is our Spanish website and schlaubi which is our German website.

    Why work for Decision Tech?
    This is a fantastic opportunity that would suit someone who wants to drive their career forward and develop quickly as the business, and team, grows.

    We believe that our great team is at the centre of our continued success. We work hard to get the right people on board and have created an exceptional culture in which you can flourish. We celebrate fresh ideas, enthusiasm and motivation – and seek staff who will bring that dynamic and more.
