We can offer you the chance to help make the UK a safer place through innovation, working in partnership with government and law enforcement organisations on some of the most challenging data and technology problems out there.

About us

We’ve been around for about eight-years and gone from being a little-known tech start-up to creating our very own community at the heart of the tech and digital epicentre of the UK - Manchester, we are now growing our central London office.

Our name Naimuri is Japanese and simply means…

‘nai’ meaning ‘not’
‘muri’ meaning ‘overburden’

These principles apply to every aspect of an organisation from technology, process and infrastructure, through to people, culture and leadership. This means that we empower our teams to do what they think is the right thing, giving them the skills and confidence to explore new ways of working, and to create a bias-free environment, where all our people feel comfortable collaborating to deliver the finest ideas and solutions in an agile environment.

Our business is focused on 4 cornerstones, which shape and underpin the way in which we go about work and treat each other. These are: Wellbeing, Empowerment, Perpetual Edge and Delivery.

People and culture are at the heart of Naimuri, so that collectively, we can realise our mission of ‘making the UK a safer place to be’.

About the role and the team

We are currently growing our analysis community, comprising business change managers, business analysts, user researchers and user experience designers. You will, therefore, be joining an exciting and growing community which sees individuals closely integrated into technical teams.

You will spend approximately 80% of your time integrated into one of our software development or data science teams, planning, designing and implementing activities to help our customers to adopt new technology and transition to planned new ways of working.

You will support acceptance testing processes to ensure that intended changes have been correctly implemented and that anticipated benefits have been realised. You will work closely with analytical colleagues to help our customers meet their benefits plans as closely and effectively as possible.

You will spend the other 20% of your time working on some of our smaller-scale and shorter-term projects, performing similar tasks to help our customers to better understand their technical and change requirements and embark on the most appropriate longer-term technical and change projects.

All of our work is closely focused on our mission to make the UK a safer and better place to be.
