It’s sometimes difficult to cut through the relentless noise being generated by the Digital Manufacturing sector. Everything seems to be a revolution or significant technological advancement.

In truth, there is so much scope for innovation, though. Digital Manufacturing is arguably the fastest moving Smart Industry sector, which also makes it one of the most exciting and desirable industries to work in. 

From technologists to sales leaders, product managers to pre-sales consultants, 2020 brings a wave of exciting new opportunities to help you advance your career.  

Based on the conversations my team and I are having with Digital Manufacturing professionals, here are my top 5 technology companies to work for in 2020! 

Romax Technology 

Romax Technology are known for their “world leading” solutions for electro-mechanical drivetrain design and simulation. Striking an impressive blend of software innovation and a consultative approach to their design services, Romax Technology work with 500+ leading OEMs globally. 

They’ve also created a fantastic workplace environment, with flexible working, scope for professional development and a management team invested in continuous improvement. Their “work hard, play hard” culture means the team regularly socialise and take part in team-building activity. 


Onshape grabbed all the headlines in 2019 for driving the CAD revolution before being acquired by PTC. Previously dubbed as the “New Generation of CAD”, Onshape’s impressive rise has more than caught the eye of Digital Manufacturing professionals around the world. 

So, what’s it like to work for a company making every headline in 2019? Complicated, but the good kind. Onshape have created a challenging environment where employees can steer the direction of product development and are united in delivering a solution which will make a difference. 

Centric Software 

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Centric Software provide retailers, fashion brands and manufacturers with the digital transformation tools to accelerate their business.  

Centric Software give their employees the freedom and autonomy to make a difference and work with exciting software. Whether you’re working from home or in the office, there is a real sense of togetherness and unity towards their goals. In a fast-paced environment, Centric Software offer excellent learning opportunities to help employees grow professionally. 


Three-time Forbes Cloud 100 winner Vlocity was built in partnership with Salesforce and has since pioneered “industry cloud”. Their comprehensive solution portfolio is recognised globally, supporting some of the world’s biggest brands across a variety of sectors.  

Best of all, Vlocity have created an environment and culture where employees can thrive. Their vision and strategy have been formed by a leadership team who have seen it all and are passionate to deliver solutions to solve their customer’s digital transformation headaches. Sitting on the shoulder of a technology giant, Vlocity remain agile, fast-paced, exciting and appear to offer everything you’d want in a prospective employer. 


Since being founded in 2018, OnScale have maybe even impressed themselves with how quickly they have grown in becoming a leading cloud-based engineering simulation provider. The red-hot technology company have recently been hailed for making simulation more accessible with their pay-as-you-Simulate SaaS model. 

The Silicon Valley born company has since opened offices in the UK and Tokyo. They offer exceptional employee benefits, a problem-solving environment, a leadership team with a vision and the tools to allow their employees to push the boundaries for simulation software.
