The Codeweavers Team
A place to grow
In the 5 and a half years I've been here, one thing is for certain. The only constant is change. This means that nothing is stagnant as we're always looking to refine and improve the way we work collaboratively. On top of that, everyone is encouraged to take the time to fail, develop and grow. As part of the account management team since its inception, I've been able to define the role within the business and be the voice of our customers.

A place to collaborate
"I joined Codeweavers during the pandemic. I was worried that it might be hard to connect with people being remote; however, I found that within days I was collaborating with different teams, meeting new people and making new friendships. I joined a book club and a pet club, getting to chat and know lots of like-minded people in the areas I hadn’t yet worked."

A place to invest in yourself
"As a student with no previous programming employment experience prior to starting my placement with Codeweavers, my team has been a huge source of support and reassurance as I went about the otherwise daunting task of becoming familiar with project codebases that were at a scale I had never seen before in my own projects (as well as dealing with the sense of Imposter Syndrome that comes with such a process). On top of this, it is incredibly refreshing to see continual learning and growth not only act as a core value of the Codeweavers culture, but be something that is actively integrated into our work schedule – there’s never a feeling that I will grow stagnant in terms of developing my own skill set as a developer and makes the work I do feel like an investment in myself at all times rather than “just another job”."

A place to be supported
"I’ve been working at Codeweavers for just over 3 years where I started as a QA engineer. Coming from a manual testing background the whole QA side of things was an eye opener for me but the support everyone gave me enabled me to develop my skills and learn new things. Less than 12 months in and along came Covid and working from home, again the support continued and Codeweavers gave me the opportunity to learn something completely new when they asked me to take on a Product Owner role, this I have been doing for just over 2 years and am really enjoying it. Kaizen time is a big thing with Codeweavers and they give you the time and resources to enable you to learn. We have weekly demo’s where we get an insight into what teams have been working on developing our ever growing products. We have regular social events which are great, you get to see people that you don’t normally interact with regularly."

A place to improve
"I have been working for Codeweavers for two years now, and there is still something new every day. Although we work autonomously, I still feel supported in my development and part of a community. I have really adopted their approach to failure, to embrace and learn from it. I am encouraged to give things a go, challenge and problem solve in my own way."

A place to grow
"I’ve been working in the Codeweavers Marketing department for the last 4 years, and one thing that really stands out to me is the support in learning and growing within your career. In my second year, I received guidance and help when deciding to take my CIM Digital Diploma in Marketing; having dedicated time each week to focus on personal learning is something I have not seen in many other businesses."
