What we do
Ridgeway is a creative web design agency who specialise in well-planned, eye catching and technically complex e-commerce and content-managed websites.
We work with over 70 clients including well-known brands such as Twinings, Rotary Watches, hmv, Oxford Instruments, Smithers Group and Royal Academy of Engineering.
We're a leading Kentico Gold Partner and EPiServer Associate Partner - recognised as delivering world-class solutions.
We excel in helping clients to leverage their online presence by delivering solutions which are aesthetically compelling, technically robust and user friendly.
We were named as winners of the '2013 Small Business of the Year' category at both the West Oxfordshire Business Awards and the Oxfordshire Business Awards.
In 2014, Ridgeway won 3 Kentico Site of the Year awards. The website we built for Twinings won Global Site of the Year and Best Ecommerce Site, while The Oxfordshire Business Awards won Best Graphic Design. 2014 was also the year we were listed in both the Drum Digital Census and the Wirehive League Table.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly bunch who pull together to get things done. There's a fantastic team ethic that runs through Ridgeway, from the largest project meetings right through to catching up in the kitchen whilst making a cuppa.
Ridgeway is led by a senior team with extensive web and digital marketing experience. Each senior member has over 15 years experience delivering solutions for multi-national brands including Epson, Dell, Fujitsu, Siemens, Kraft, Masterfoods, Ministry of Sound, Mitsubishi Motors, Prodrive and Williams F1 - in addition to Ridgeway's diverse range of fantastic clients.
Between them, they lead our team of 45 (and growing) experienced, talented and enthusiastic. Net Developers, UI Developers, Designers, Project Managers, Search and Digital Marketing Strategists, as well as a dedicated support team for IT, HR, Finance, Marketing and Project Administration.
There is no doubt that we work hard but the good humoured banter and regular social events mean we enjoy each other’s company in and out of the office. We constantly have something to look forward to and we make sure that no birthday, celebration or fundraiser goes without lots of cake & doughnuts.
Working with us
Working at Ridgeway is both challenging and rewarding. The team here are enthusiastic and driven, and we set ourselves the highest standards.
We're driven by creating cutting edge UI and flawless code, underpinning integrations and solutions with deliver value for our clients and great experiences for their customers.
We are all motivated to meet and exceed expectations, and our approach has been recognised with two business award wins, and a number of industry accolades, in the past 12 months.
We run projects with a cherry picked mixture of Agile and Waterfall influences. Weekly team meetings, and daily stand-up meetings for projects ensure the team is clear on deliverables and issues. With two production offices, we're used to working together remotely via screen share and conference calls to ensure clarity within the team.
Day-to-day we use a slick web-based project and task management system, which allows us to schedule work with the minimum of fuss, whilst tracking time spent against tasks - ensuring we learn and evolve the accuracy of estimates, as well as accurately measuring progress against the schedule.
The development of our process is ongoing - we took a week long break from production in 2012 to kick start the review of every element of the delivery our projects. From Discovery to Support, we continue to evolve this as the team grows, and new tools and ideas become available.
Ultimately, the team and our knowledge are what underpins the success of our clients solutions. We recognise that nurturing and developing these areas is vital to Ridgeway's success too.
