v9 Solutions create beautiful websites, applications and bespoke systems in Warrington, Cheshire.
Our office is located in Warrington, Cheshire in the UK - a central location for our employees with a direct train-line to Manchester, Leeds and London. As a small company we set out to create a great working environment - for us that meant a workspace thats bright and airy and that encourages collaboration, innovation and creativity.
From the beginning we designed our workspace to be modular. We can add and/or remove components to allow for different layouts on the fly which is great for hack days, hot desk-ing and unconferences where we might want to switch out a few desks for sofas or wall space for example.
At v9 we employ various agile and 'out of the box' style approaches to our processes. We have a large screen that takes pride of place right in the center of the wall above our desks. We use this screen for an overview of our Trello boards or to show off our latest work to our colleagues for help or critique.
After reading James Shore’s article we decided we needed an object of deploy, we didn’t have a rubber chicken to hand but we did have… a pig!! And so was born the Pig of Deploy, we now incorporate him into all aspects of our productivity platforms including trello, our kanban wall and we even have a virtual pig of deploy built into commit hooks.

01 Continuous Delivery
Satisfying our customers through early and continous delivery of amazing software experiences is our highest priority.
02 Stay Agile
We welcome and embrace changing requirements even late in development. We do whatever it takes to give our customers the edge they need.
Working together with our customers on a daily basis to help realize their dreams - going above and beyond their wildest expectations.
We build our projects around motivated individuals. A world class working environment, trust and support gives them what they need to get the job done.
Efficiency is one of our the key staples of our work ethic. Good efficiency means we can build what our customers want quicker, cheaper and with more polish.
Through the use of self-organizing teams we build the best architectures, requirements and designs. We don’t need to micro-manage our team because they want to perform.
By sharing everything with our customers and letting them get involved with every step of the development process we can better meet their needs faster than ever before.
By reflecting on our work at regular intervals we continually improve and become more effective. We are always striving to better ourselves and our work.
When work doesn’t feel like work, that’s when the magic happens. We provide a world class professional service whilst enjoying what we do - seeing commits and discussions on a weekend is common!
