Working at the cutting edge
of entertainment technology
who we are
We are a company of designers, software developers and hardware engineers working together to build industry-leading entertainment technology products.
Carallon’s creations are all over the world. There’s a good chance you saw one today. Our products are used in theme parks. Palaces. Churches. Bridges. TV shows. Art installations. Malls. Museums. Airports. On the world tours of international superstars.
From the award-winning Pharos range of lighting control solutions to Brompton Technology’s industry-leading LED video processor, Carallon’s research and development team have designed and built elegant, iconic products that control some of the most famous landmarks in the world.
what we do
We work out what the industry needs, and we make it. From concept to creation, it all happens in house. We design and build reliable solutions – powerful, user-friendly, resilient products with style, that are rugged enough to withstand the rigours of touring, or to run huge, responsive installations 24/7, 365 days of the year.
We are specialists in real-time control systems. We create embedded firmware and powerful graphical user interfaces, deployed across many platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android). We are experts in industrial design, electronics, FPGA system design, networking, graphics and video processing.
Carallon was established in 2004 and is based in West London. We are a small company, engineering and manufacturing all our products here in the UK, but we have international reach, with satellite offices in North America and Asia Pacific to best serve our global customer base.
train on the job
Because we work in research and development, we’re used to honing in on potential and nurturing it into something brilliant. We believe the best way to learn is by doing – which is why we offer on-the-job training to new grads who are as passionate about tech as we are.
Everyone is built differently. Maybe you’re a night owl who likes to code in the evenings, or maybe you’re at your brightest when tinkering with tech over your morning coffee. Whatever kind of person you are, Carallon offers flexibility in working hours; as long as you get the job done, you can adjust your hours to suit you.
everyone's an engineer
At Carallon, all the managers are also engineers and software developers. This is true all the way up to the Managing Director. The company was founded by and is still led by engineers. This fosters a supportive work environment where like-minded people can easily collaborate to solve problems.
Carallon develops for lots of different products simultaneously. You’ll be challenged with creating completely new solutions as well as troubleshooting or optimising existing products. This means both that you’ll never get bored, and that you get to learn what you’re best at and most interested in.
We offer internships in several departments, giving you the opportunity to learn and earn during your summer holidays. We treat our interns like every other member of the team. This includes flexibility in working hours and on-the-job training.
build a career
Many of our long-standing current Carallon employees started off as new graduates. We pride ourselves on having created a supportive and challenging teaching environment where you can develop your skills in the areas that interest you, and build a rewarding, lasting career.
