Our Story

Secret Source was set up in 2014 by old school friends Richard Clarke and Mark Bjornsgaard and veteran tech legend Ted Stresen Reuter.

Our mission was to create a tech company people loved working with and to build the best place to work for developers in the whole universe.

Our Mission

We believe the secret to delivering quality work comes from everyone working together and enjoying every step of the way.

And it seems to be working… we now number over 25 with 95% staff retention, and we get to work some really cool people. British Gas, Cole and Son, Barclays and Experian to name just a few.

Our core beliefs

Just do great work
What we do, we do well. We set the bar for quality high and continuously look for new ways to improve what we do and how we do it.

Wow our customers
We want to do more than just make our customers happy. We want our customers to love every minute of working with us.

Enjoy our work
Our team is the core to our success. Everything we do is focused on building a culture that promotes the happiness and wellbeing of all our team.

So what's the secret sauce of Secret Source?

Without question… Our team.
They’re the best. We’ve got super talented designers, our developers dream in code and our PMs and Account Managers are the nicest, most organised people you’ll ever meet.

And if you hadn’t noticed, we’re based in paradise – mid-winter meetings near the beach? Just one more reason clients love working with us. If you’re going to outsource, outsource to a team you really want to visit, in the Canaries.

And Finally...

We’re sort of obsessed with Star Wars so when we were asked to define our spirit animal, something that embodies who we are – it had to be R2.

Reliable and trustworthy, R2 is the ultimate confidant. Agile and flexible enough to work through solutions under pressure, R2 remains cool and calm and even maintains a sense of humour.
