Putting technology on the shopfloor of the world’s most forward thinking industries, our MES connects real time data feeds from IoT and automation to the enterprise, ensuring that decisions on the shopfloor are on time and informed.

Lighthouse Systems' software enables the digital transformation of medium and large manufacturing organisations. The company and its partners deliver MES solutions based on Shopfloor-Online to companies across the discrete, batch and process industries - in more than 50 countries.

We are passionate about our work and have a deep understanding of the manufacturing industry. Our goal is to be the leading provider in MES software and remain ahead of the curve in our use of the latest software technologies.

We have an open and friendly working environment; we encourage people to get involved in all aspects of the business. All ideas are good ideas and we have a regular forum to put forward and discuss these ideas for the product and about how we work.

We have plenty of green space to enjoy the free provided lunch in the sun, as well as host after work socials and sports. We have a zero dress code, so you can be comfortable while you work.

We are constantly expanding our talented team, so we are always looking for creative, capable people to help us achieve our goal. If you want to get involved in building a product used by some of the largest manufacturers in the world, including Nissan, Crown, Ball, SunPower and Benteler, then we are keen to hear from you.
