6B was founded in 2014, when our CEO Paul Brown, spotted an opportunity…

“In 2014, I quit my job as a developer to leap into the unknown.  

 

The market was suffering with un-skilled, slow and ineffective development businesses selling loads of jargon rather than genuinely helping people and delivering results – and the problems in the market remain the same today.

 

Bloated teams.
Poor communication.
Poor client management.
No attention to detail.
Misinformation.
Lack of technical ability.
 

6B started with a passion to address these problems. I had a small desk in my bedroom, a very supportive and understanding wife, and a burning ambition to form a different type of consultancy. A home where skilled people are supported to deliver good advice and innovative work to our clients at speed. A place focussed on people, relationships and honest, transparent communication with each other and our clients.

What we do 

6B today is a technology partner dedicated to making sense of big, complex integrations.   

Having designed and built well over 100 bespoke systems, our expertise lies in website, app and database development, that’s tailor-made to suit our clients’ unique challenges.  

Our team of over 40 problem-solvers, creative-thinkers and tech enthusiasts can support clients at any stage of their digital product journey – from initial consultancy and brainstorming, to ongoing maintenance and development once their solution has launched.  

With a wealth of experience that spans multiple sectors, we’re able to turn our hand to any industry – our clients include ITV, Public Health England and several NHS Trusts, so we’re used to big, legacy system projects that cause havoc internally. 

From the large-scale streamlining of legacy processes, to rapidly growing companies who need the modern tools and automation to help them scale, everything we create is fuelled by a genuine passion for what we do and backed by our technical excellence.

Our mission 

There’s no reason why innovative companies should struggle on with painful software challenges. That’s why our mission is to replace old, outdated processes with streamlined, user-centric systems that just work. 

We aim to be the global digital partner of choice for ambitious organisations who want to create real, positive change in their businesses, and better outcomes for their customers. 

But we also know how important our people are. We’re a passionate team, so we aim to set the standard of progressive digital product agencies where workplace culture is concerned.

We want to build our people up, as we strive for an environment that’s genuine, supportive and enjoyable

The 6Be Values

We have 6 core company values that are embedded into everything we do – from our projects to our workplace culture. The theme that underpins it all is that we’re obsessed with client success. How do we achieve it? With the 6Be's...

1. Be supportive

You can only build inspired solutions with a team to match, so true client success must start with a caring and inclusive environment. We give people the freedom to express their creativity and ideasalways striving to build an enjoyable workplace where they feel comfortable and accepted. We nurture talent, encourage career development and promote staff wellbeing by offering “flexi-everything” – hours, location, even unlimited holidays. We look after each other, celebrating the “ups”, while being there for the “downs”.

2. Be technically excellent

We’re adept at making big, complex development projects simplified, unified and streamlined. Everything we create will always be custom designed to meet our clients unique circumstances, and the high expectations of their users. To do this, we can’t sit still – we encourage our team to always keep learning and striving to deliver the very best quality, creating work that’s clever, thorough, considered and exceptional. Basically, we always ask: is there a better way?

3. Be passionate about your work

You can’t deliver great tech without passion. We’re just a bunch of techies who love what we do – and that phrase forms a key part of our culture. We share knowledge, new ideas and project feedback around the team, so everyone can develop their understanding of what works. We frequently geek-out over new releases in the industry, passing the benefits onto our clients. Our passion means we’re constantly looking to learn, improve and make sure we’re better tomorrow than we are today.  

4. Be the “extra mile” agency

We don’t just deliver technical excellence – we build beyond our clients’ expectations. We pay attention to detail, aiming to surpass the high standards of our solutions, clients and staff. We know it’s the little touches that make customer experiences extraordinary, so whether it’s giving you a warm welcome on one of your visits to our office, or supporting staff in sharing their unique opinions on projects (because that’s where real game-changing ideas come from, right?) – don’t worry, you’re in safe hands.

5. Be a trusted partner

We’re a down-to-earth bunch, who take transparency and openness seriously on our team. We don’t overload people with technical jargon – we’re authentic and honest, showing empathy towards our clientstheir business challenges and each other. We’re interested in forging long-lasting technical relationships with you, so you’ll never hear us refer to ourselves as just “suppliers” – we’re long-term partners. Executing our initial Breakthrough plan isn’t the goal, it’s just the beginning. 

6. Be growth-focused

We’re true creative thinkers, who aim to stay a few steps ahead. We don’t lead – we change the game, we pioneerWe’re driven by the challenge and desire to truly help the organisations we work with. In tech, that often means being bold with our concepts. We’re not afraid to make big impact, and if you want to creatreal, positive change with better outcomes, you must think creatively. Luckily, that’s our speciality – every member of the 6B family is motivated to think bigger, fail fast and try again.
