Who are Amiqus?

Amiqus was founded with a mission, to use Tech For Good to make civil justice more accessible.

Our first product, Amiqus ID (released in 2016), was designed to improve the slow, inefficient processes that regulated professions currently undertake as part of client onboarding checks.

We wanted to make sure that firms of all sizes could use smart technology to relieve them of complex manual processes and, more importantly, keep sensitive client information secure.

Amiqus has gained momentum over the past few years, and our work has been recognised by leading regulators and firms in law, finance, accountancy, property and recruitment.

There is the opportunity for an experienced Infrastructure Engineer to join our technology team and work from the Amiqus office in Leith, 10 minutes from Edinburgh city centre, or completely remotely.
