What's it like to work at Rouge?
Rouge Media is a digital design and development agency. We have a full range of clients from start-ups to large corporates. We deliver and support WordPress marketing sites, powerful web applications and everything in between. This breadth and range keeps us stable and secure as a business, and the variety keeps day-to-day work exciting and varied.
All our designers and developers work closely as a team. Problems get solved together. We spend time working on our own, but never in isolation.
One of the founding philosophies of the business was to protect a work-life balance. We believe that staying late, night after night, doesn’t mean more work gets done. So we try not to do it. We work hard, but we work efficiently.
We are easy to get to and pretty well connected despite working in a village. We are right by Junction 12 of the M4 (not that you can hear the motorway from our studio). Rouge is 5 minutes walk from Theale train station, on the Paddington line from London.
We like our food. Theale village has a great shops, pubs, a curry house, bakery and the best baguette shop this side of Calais. The business buys lunch for everyone on birthdays. Thursday is ‘bake off’ (or ‘buy off’ depending on excuses), where we take it in turns to bake tasty snacks for the studio.
