Spaggetti Ltd is a privately held software development and technology innovation services company. The company is new, we are not.

This means that we offer some uncommon elements to our service, the principal being honesty. We won't sell something that isn't right for our customer but we will help them to understand what their requirements are and we will build something that not only meets their requirement, but is also a delight to use and operate.


We have just won a significant contract to deliver an exciting solution to an International manufacturing company. To enable us to deliver this we need to expand the team with creative and productive developers who have the ambition and ability to innovate.
