Our Culture

Events

We are an active member of the thriving Scotland technology scene. We host and sponsor many internal and external events, from Scottish Government forums, to festivals of Data Innovation, Glasgow University Tech Society’s annual hackathon, as well as internal conferences and hackathons.

Our staff attend and speak regularly at events across the UK and the rest of the world; they organise testing streams at conferences; they even run podcasts

Charity

We feel a strong need to contribute to the local community, and therefore every year we organise a calendar of events including Kiltwalks, 10ks, half-marathons, quizzes, and other events to raise money for our sponsored charities.

In 2019 we hosted SEUFI, SAS’ annual international football 11-a-side tournament. 350 people from around the world descended on Glasgow to compete. Scotland were sadly defeated in the final to Russia, but the tournament allowed us to raise a huge amount for Scottish Autism and the SSPCA.

Wellbeing and Diversity

SAS is dedicated to the wellbeing of our staff, and our culture reflects that. We provide heaps of great benefits, from private health insurance, mental health support in the organization, massages, paid gym memberships, and much more. Indeed in 2019, SAS was awarded an Excellence in Wellbeing award.

We have a thriving, diverse organisation, and were named by Forbes as one of the Best Employers for Diversity. Our staff take part in several diversity and inclusion groups, including taking part in external industry groups focused on increasing diversity in the Software and Engineering field.
