We are selectec


We are a diverse bunch here at selectec but some things are universal. We all share a strong work ethic and enthusiasm for good customer service. We have big ambitions for our company and are committed to working hard for our partners.

selectec was founded by two friends with different expertise who had an idea or two about changing the world of book copying. They were soon up and running out of a garden shed and a third bedroom. Since then, the company has grown significantly. 30 years on and we have outgrown four different offices and the shed is just used to store a lawn mower but we’ve held on to the energy, spirit and our core values: be honest, listen to our resellers and always do the right thing. That’s how we want to be known. To achieve this, we have a growing group of talented developers backed up by a team of dedicated sales, support and admin staff promoting both in-house and third party software across the globe.

Sit back, relax and allow us to introduce a few of the people who make up the rock star team.

The Development Team


Under the watchful eye of Mark, our Head of Development, the selectec dev team makes up nearly half of the running total. This shows our commitment to our own applications as well as building bespoke solutions. They love web technology and care deeply about beautiful code, APIs and documentation (even if it does slow the process down).

They are a group of talented individuals who build and maintain a number of apps using a variety of technologies. They also undertake bespoke projects for partners and customers where our technology, or our third party products, are involved. Not only do they love to geek out with all the new technologies but they are really good at their job (honest!). They are not afraid to do things differently and they are driven by an inspiring set of values that we like to think shape our products for the better.

Despite a common misconception of hiding behind multiple computer screens and avoiding daylight, our dev team aspires to have a shared understanding with our clients in order to deliver validated customer experiences and outcomes (but we still do not let them out in the real world much!)

They work long hours fueled by coffee and follow a simple mantra – There are no bugs, just undocumented features!
