Our Culture

Our culture is vibrant, innovative and diverse, and we’re really proud of it.

With 300 employees worldwide and an unrivalled track record of project delivery, Alfa is expanding rapidly throughout North America and Europe. We combine the best of technology with business consulting experience to deliver ground-breaking IT projects for financial services companies.

Our Culture and You

Alfa employees are an eclectic mix but all are creative, talented and hardworking.

Ours is a close-knit community, with many people choosing to spend time together in and outside of work. We all enjoy the work-life balance and Alfa’s supportive approach to further training, career development and opportunities for self-development.

When we ask our team why they like working for Alfa, they always talk about the vibrant and supportive culture.

We hold numerous team events and conferences that bring us together for socializing and team building, most recently skiing in Park City, Utah and our Global Conference in Miami.

Alfa is different to most consultancies and software companies. We’ve grown from a small operation to become a global player, but have kept our focus on the contribution and development of each individual on the team.

We think it’s important that people keep in touch, and encourage our staff to spend at least one day each week at an Alfa office. That way, all the small teams stay part of the bigger one.

For all of these reasons, Alfa staff retention is incredibly high and this helps to maintain our small company feel and sociable nature.

Our partnership with Stonewall

Stonewall research shows that people perform better when they can be themselves, and Alfa is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Program. We join over 700 organizations all committed to creating a world where LGBT everywhere are accepted without exception.
