Rising Star Awards

As a start-up collaboration is key to innovation. We work with our customers, our contractors and the wider telecoms community to establish what features and functionality we need to best serve our stakeholders. Our team then work together to these turn ideas into real world solutions!

We sent our developer, Max Andreassen, to represent us at the Proud Embankment Award ceremony. Winning and accepting the award on behalf of Pickr came second to meeting Mock the Weeks Rhys James which was his highlight of the evening.

Max said it was a fantastic event and a great opportunity to meet other promising start-ups and established tech businesses. There were plenty of big names in the shortlists including BT, the Telegraph and Lloyds Bank. You can see the full lists of finalists here.

“Pickr’s purpose is to help people and businesses reach their full potential by working together and this extends to our internal team. I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved but there’s certainly lots more to come!” Kane Halsey, Founder and CEO.

If you want to be a part of an award-winning tech team we’d love to hear from you. We have exciting expansion plans afoot and need passionate developers to help us deliver them! Get in touch on hello@pickr.works if you want to chat about who we are and what we do.
