What We Do

At Bullet Digital Solutions we love simplicity. We are a team of straight talkers. We don’t over complicate the problems your organisation faces or how we can solve them. We think clearly and act quickly. Always.

Don’t be misled – our work isn’t actually simple at all. We just don’t feel the need to shout about how complex it gets at Bullet to ensure our customers benefit from the cutting edge technology we use. Leave the complexities to us, you don’t need to worry about that.

What does “digital transformation” and “digital solutions” actually mean in an organisation? At Bullet it just means solving a problem… digitally. That’s what we do. Simply.

No complicated briefs and long scoping documents. No mysterious phrases and terminology to confuse our customers. We like to listen, understand the problem and then make working visual prototypes of applications that can help. Anything that needs to be changed can be changed. Quickly.

We’re a small team amongst IT giants. We like it that way. No unnecessary processes and procedures and complications to hold us back. Fast development. Flexibility.

OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM

Simon, Andy and Tim share over 25 years experience in the industry across a range of web development deliveries within both the private and public sectors. We bring a "can do" attitude to all that is thrown at us and pride ourselves on being able to balance short-term goals with the bigger picture. Our main aim is to understand your organisational needs and help shape solutions that are right for you. We'll translate that into deliverables and oversee delivery through our multi-talented team.

User Insights

Bev Croft

Bev leads our work around user research and usability. Ensuring our tools are usable is a key goal for us here.

User Insights

Bev Croft

Bev works across the Bullet Digital Solutions and Red Bullet (sister company) teams. She brings over 10 years of experience on projects for Admiral, Santander, Expedia and Local Government. Her strengths are being able to create user personas that marry real users. This enables us to carry out user testing with the right people to ensure what we produce is usable – this can guide things like form labelling, taxonomy and calls to actions. Ensuring what we build can be understood and used efficiently is at the heart of what we do.

Bev works closely with Gareth and Jodie to take early prototypes and finished tools out to real users. In a world where software companies can deliver complex, unwieldy systems, we strive to break the trend and deliver tools that increase efficiency.

THE WIDER TEAM

Our development team has been assembled based around the technologies we work with. Predominantly this is using open source technologies (particularly the Laravel Framework) and most of our team is skilled in this area, led by Dima Korobka. We also have skills across .NET technologies though, led by Ben Fidge who has a wealth of experience in this area.

We’re always on the lookout for great talent and have upcoming roles available in our development, quality assurance and support teams, if you are interested in a role, please do get in touch.
