City Slickers Face Recognition

About Us

We're creating a really exciting, high growth, Cornish IT Business by truly innovating Face Recognition applications for new worldwide markets.

The company is led by an experienced leadership team supported by a young and enthusiastic team of developers and support staff. We have a programme to recruit and develop young local talent and pride ourselves on a strong work ethic whilst promoting a healthy work life balance.

We have a unique experience of the application of Face Recognition technology and the benefits that can be achieved by deploying it into various business sectors.

Finance Options

We have flexible ways of financing a project from capital purchase, residual purchase lease and monthly payment loans. Often a marketing department is only interested in customer data and a monthly subscription is more relevant whereas an IT department may have an annual capital budget to spend - whatever the requirement we have a way of financing it.

Tremough Innovation Centre

Office Location

We started our business from home, we then moved to the modern Tremough Innovation Centre on the University of Exeter campus in Falmouth, a building designed to be of minimal impact to the environment and is extremely energy efficient. This is a shared office space with a number of businesses, which encourages local collaboration, growth and sustainability.

However due to Covid19 we are now working from home locations which is becoming the new normal.

We are creating exciting new positions for people to develop their careers, whilst enjoying a healthy work life balance. Although the company is based in the South West we have national coverage using resource based from home connecting with and supporting our customers locally.

We work with the local schools and colleges discussing what skills we require now and in the future so they can help develop and train the students so that they are ready to join us and are immediately productive in the workplace.

We encourage customers / partners to attend project reviews on a Friday at the office so that they can spend the weekend enjoying and exploring Cornwall's stunning countryside and mixture of cultural activities.
