New premises for Mayden

16 Nov 2018

Bath-based software company Mayden has just moved from One Widcombe Crescent to new offices at The Old Dairy in Oldfield Park, Bath. 

The move comes as a result of the company’s sustained growth from its inception in 2006 to a team of 68 people today, including developers, product experts, account managers, administrators and communications specialists.

In spring 2014, the company moved to Widcombe from smaller offices in Box and Biddestone, but has quickly grown to require additional space. With this second move, Mayden seeks to establish a long term base to accommodate future growth.

Mayden specialises in building cloud based software systems for healthcare services. Its flagship product - iaptus - is the leading patient management software for psychological therapies. The company is driven by a mission to create digital technology that changes what’s possible for clinicians and patients.

Mayden also has an internal mission: to create a productive, efficient company that staff members are proud and happy to work for. The company has a flat structure whereby teams and individuals are self managing and empowered to make their own decisions, manage their own workloads and set their own goals.

New workspace with room for growth

The Old Dairy itself is an attractive red brick Victorian building, featuring open plan office space with enviable views over the city toward the Royal Crescent. With 11,000 square foot, it offers a 50% increase on Mayden’s previous space, allowing for further growth of the business as well as ample room for meetings and collaborative working. The building is based about 2 miles southwest of Bath’s city centre and is a short walk from Oldfield Park train station near to Moorland Road.

“Being based in Bath has been hugely important to our growth and there was no question that we'd continue our journey here in the city," explained MD and founder Chris May. "Our new home is almost double our previous space, and that is a good indication of the scale of ambition we have for the future. We're incredibly fortunate to have the tech scene we do in Bath and Bristol and we look forward to getting to know the thriving community of businesses in the Moorland Road area. ”

As part of the pre-move refit, many exciting things have already happened inside the building and the staff have further plans afoot, such as a galleried cinema seating area for company presentations and movie nights. These are being taken forward as part of the second phase of the interior design plan.

Mayden Academy takes space at Widcombe Crescent

The Mayden team moved into their new offices on 29th August. Meanwhile, Mayden’s coding school, Mayden Academy have moved into the vacated space at One Widcombe Crescent, allowing them to teach multiple cohorts of aspiring developers simultaneously, increasing their intake to meet demand.

Mayden Academy is an employer created, commercially designed, training school for aspiring aspiring software developers. The Full Stack Track is a 16 week intensive course that develops skills for coding in PHP, a widely used open source scripting language, as well as software design, web application building and agile project management.
