Team. People. Family.

Every Monday we get subversive with fancy socks – these are Ricky's Superman socks... with capes.

We are our product. Whilst we’re all individuals, we are products of our common culture and ideas. We don’t have a standard set of product lines or services. Just like our clients, our people are different.

Inspiration pioneers

  • Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX

There is not one other individual in the world today doing more to progress us as a species than Elon Musk. His endeavours in space exploration and energy consumption are causing the change that’s making a huge difference to society today. Elon provides inspiration that we’re capable of achieving anything if you have the drive to achieve your goals – even in areas people think of as "off the wall". This approach is central to me, and central to what Stridon will achieve through determination and belief.

Inspiration pioneers

  • Sir Clive Sinclair, who helped bring computing to the consumer market
  • David Bowie, cultural icon

Sir Clive Sinclair helped bring computers to the mainstream. This caused 12-13 year-olds to talk about code at school, meaning a whole generation have got an understanding of computing that they wouldn't otherwise have.

David Bowie ripped up the rule book on how things were done. Visually, at the time he came on the scene in the 70s we had had The Rolling Stones in jeans and The Beatles in suits. Musically, the way that he created songs was almost like a play on the chaos theory.

Inspiration pioneers

  • Chuck Yeager, one of the first people to enter space as a test pilot
  • Dog sled racer Lance Mackey, four-time winner of both the 1,000 mile Yukon Quest and the Iditarod Trail Dog Sled Race –a 1, 200 mile race across the Alaskan wilderness

Chuck Yeager was one of the first people to enter space, making it to lower orbit.

Lance Mackey raises Siberian dogs and achieved dog-sled race success despite battling cancer. He had multiple challenges and wouldn’t give up even when ill. On one occasion, whilst racing, his sledge broke and he finished by using just one ski. It’s something I relate to – not giving up and seeing things through to the end.

Inspiration pioneers

  • Business magnate Richard Branson

Richard Branson started out in a market with nothing and worked his way up to where he is now. He was a defining influence while I was growing up. Richard has ideas and he goes for it – he doesn’t get intimidated. I think he’s one of the biggest business brains of the 21st century.

Inspiration pioneers

Arnold Schwarzenegger had challenges in life and never saw anything as impossible. He would set himself targets and goals and strive to be the best. I always want to be perfect at everything I do, whether that’s at work or in my personal life. If I do something, I want to do it properly and aim to be the best at it.

  • Alex Zanardi, racing driver and paracyclist

Elon Musk is a man who believes in his own future and ensures his dreams come true. He sets his own targets and makes sure they happen. He also gave us an electric car for the people.

I admire Alex Zanardi because he was an F1 indie car racer who suffered a terrible accident and lost both legs – but he’s made sure it hasn’t stopped him from doing what he loves. He has gone on to win two medals at the Paralympics. He’s an inspiration.

Inspiration pioneers

  • Business magnate Richard Branson

Richard Branson has shown how anything is possible if you put enough hard work in, and that thinking outside the box can bring you great success. But the biggest thing for me is that Richard has the same learning difficulty I have – and has proven that nothing can hold you back if you work hard enough at it.

Individual

We focus on the individual. Whatever we’re working on – from a support call with a client, to a discussion with a colleague – our central focus is always on how we can help that person.

Original

We take the road less travelled. It’s not your standard approach, but we think it’s what makes us unique. By breaking away from the corporate confines traditionally associated with the IT sector, we’ve created a service at the forefront of industry change.

Supportive

We support people – it’s that simple. We believe reward comes out of helping others and it’s something we practice at all levels. Everything we do is for the greater good; it’s our cultural touchstone and we’re proud of the ecosystem that’s grown from it.

Collective

We operate collectively. We believe that the workplace is like a family and at Stridon we make sure those values aren’t left at home. Respect, honesty, loyalty and a strong work ethic go hand-in-hand with how we run our business. It’s not about us. It’s about you. And we really mean that.
