Who we are

Premier wants to make doing business easier by bringing modern, user-friendly technology to spaces previously neglected. We are currently the UK's largest supplier of Brewery Management software, supporting over 300 breweries run their daily operations. We are passionate about solving problems through technology and making tangible improvements to our customers lives.

Who we're looking for

Premier believes that placement students can make a real and tangible impact on the development of our products. Therefore we are looking for ambitious self motivated students who want to experience building customer-impacting production-ready code.

Our placement students will not experience the more structured placements of large tech companies, instead we offer hands on experience of building and delivering products with clear business impact.


"Working at Premier Systems has given me exposure to challenging problems and the opportunity to work with modern and forward looking technologies which has been great to stay ahead of the curve.
The office environment fun and relaxed, my team is friendly, supportive, and welcome my thoughts and contributions. The company has a good mix of young and experienced coworkers, which has allowed me to progress without being out of my depth."

- Callum McClure, Placement 2019-2020
