A Bristol based software development agency
Behind every great piece of tech, there is a great team of people.
Founded in 2012 by wife and husband team Emily and Ric Hill, we have established ourselves firmly on the Bristol tech scene, working with businesses in the South West, and beyond. We are proud to be part of the local technical community; our name Ghyston comes from a mythological character from Bristol folklore - the industrious giant who created the Avon gorge!
We put a huge amount of effort into recruiting bright, inquisitive people and train most of our developers and project managers from scratch in house. As a result, we have a close-knit team who work well together and are passionate about creating exceptional outcomes for our clients.
“Through our strong ethos of learning and fun, we have created a team of disciplined, sharp, creative thinkers, who are passionate about delivering an exceptional service to our clients.”
Emily Hill, Founder and CEO
What makes us unique?
Ghyston’s software developers are expert problem solvers and are confident in using a wide array of technologies to solve highly unique business problems. We’re not biased towards using our favourite tools, instead we use our knowledge to choose the best tool for the job.
The Giant Minds
We work hard to recruit the best and as a result have the best problem solvers in the South West. From organised project managers, detailed obsessed testers to curious coders our team are dedicated to helping our clients meet their goals.
With a workforce of almost 25,000 people, Bristol has become a huge player in the tech scene and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of this brilliant community. We love to work with local companies and also to represent the South West with work for businesses all across the UK.
We pride ourselves on producing the right solution, first time and quickly. We're so confident about what we deliver that we will fix any bugs for free for the first two months after go-live (subject to a maintenance agreement).
