Space Between is a digital agency, specialising in designing, building and supporting brochure and ecommerce websites.
The business supports those wanting to improve their website performance and customer experience, working with both global and local brands.
Business manager, Alex Ford, said: “Our greatest asset is the team at Space Between, and as a small company we have grown organically from the original three directors to a team of 15.
“We focus on attracting, nurturing and sustaining local talent and support local technology charities such as FutureCoders South East.
“We operate a truly flexible working environment, with a focus on work life balance which always leans towards life.”
The company has grown rapidly since its inception, doubling turnover year on year in its first two years of trading. It was created after founders John and Luke bumped into each other at a networking event, sharing not only beer and pizza, but a business outlook that would shape their futures.
A subsequent meeting saw Luke’s colleague, Marcus, join the pair, who realised that they each offered the venture relevant yet complementary experience.
The business was established with the goal of creating a company built around people, which would incorporate the best use of the latest technology.
Space Between, which credits itself with creating a home for “geeks”, aims to develop innovate technology in-house whilst doubling turnover and staff annually.
Mr Ford added: “Our business stands out because literally a handful of people in the world are doing what we are doing.
“Our user experience biometrics lab, coupled with our creative working environment and amazing team, allows us to bring an energy and expertise unlike that of any competition in Kent or beyond.”
