Deep3 one year on – what’s changed?

by Lydia Kennedy

Last year we changed our name, but we also reassessed our values, tech, and relationship with our customers. 12 months on, here’s what we’ve achieved.

With a new name came a new challenge: a way to think more deeply about our business. We aimed for even more collaboration with our customers, delivering mission-critical software engineered to meet highly complex and secure environments.

The new name also reflected the clarity needed to evolve and innovate across four areas: our people, community, values, and tech.

New locations

A year on, and we've got a new headquarters in the centre of Cheltenham, where we moved to a bespoke office at Darwin House. We also have a new office in the North West: we moved from Daresbury in Cheshire to Manchester, where we're now operating out of The Landing at MediacityUK.

Excitingly, we're just about to open our new London office too. Our new locale in the nation's capital will have the same culture of collaboration our other offices have fostered, with a mission focused on expanding our reach and building on our success.

In the last year, we've also seen 17 people join Deep3 – making us now 63 people across three locations. We're looking to build that even further, and are always looking for great talent who want to work in challenging, collaborative environments.

Bringing communities together

This year, we launched our series of internal comms days, #Deep3Life. Two have taken place so far, with a range of inspirational speakers and workshops on innovative technology. Recently, we were lucky enough to hear from Steve Cunningham, dubbed ‘the fastest blind man in the world', breaking records on land, sea and air.

His mantra to go and make a difference is the kind of perspective that inspires us to collaborate and innovate. Taking a day out from the office and getting everyone from Deep3 in the same place, sharing their expertise and getting involved in discussions and projects, is what keeps our internal culture strong and committed to our value of togetherness.

NCSC's Cyber Schools Hub

We're increasingly proud of our work supporting the NCSC's Cyber Schools Hub, using cyber security as a way to encourage a diverse range of students into taking up computer science. We believe it's critical to address the current cyber security skills gap, and we've seen first-hand the impact engaging students on cyber and technology can have. Supporting the next generation of technical talent and future coders has been an enlightening, inspiring and humbling experience, which we felt especially after our Dragon's Den session at Wyedean School near Chepstow. Their computer science GCSE is being taken by girls in the majority, and the children presented their project ideas with an amazing amount of confidence.

Working with young people who are passionate about computer science brings it to life, and is a relevant reminder of what the tech industry can achieve.

Building our tech stack

We've always worked closely with our customers to design and create mission critical software that meets their challenges, but this year has seen us broaden our tech horizons even further.

Over the last 12 months we have focused on how we can take our secure-by-design approach to the next level. We are able to help more customers than ever before in the cyber and national security sectors and we are taking this expertise into other sectors as we deliver projects for customers in the Defence and Law Enforcement areas and engage with wider government.

We have also focused on expanding our G-Cloud offering to include the use of serverless technology to deliver more secure, scalable and cost-effective solutions for our government customers. This is an area where we are committed to continuing innovation, you can read more on our whitepaper here.

A year on from the launch of Deep3, we continue to refine our expertise and develop new secure solutions for a range of customers. Our exciting plans continue and we are looking forward to what the next 12 months will hold for us all.

Please get in touch if you'd like to find out more about us, our team and our collaborative, mission-focused approach, we'd love to hear from you.
