We are still in essence a family run business and love to keep our customers happy. We have the highest rated reviews for customer service vs all our competitors.

Q: It was recently ‘work-life balance week’, can you tell us a bit about the work culture at Staah?
Kirsten: It’s a very relaxed atmosphere here and the hours are flexible. Russell is a firm believer in working hard when you're at work but switching off at the end of the day to enjoy time with friends and family. If you are not happy at work then it’s hard to be happy at home and vice-versa. An advantage of working at incubyteSpace is the free gym membership at the onsite gym. This allows us to have a nice sauna or a workout at lunch if we need to destress!
Rob, Founder of Incubyte commented "Staah have been moved in a couple of weeks now - it's been great getting to know Russell and Kirsten.
"Reaction to IncubyteSpace has been amazing so far, and I’m delighted that Staah, an international based business has chosen us to be their European HQ."
