    The client

    Harmonic are working exclusively with a disruptive e-commerce and logistics business who are backed by a major international player. They are experiencing incredible growth because of a change in consumption habits driven by Covid-19.

    With Turnover growing by nearly 1000% per cent in 2020 reaching nearly £10m per month they can proudly call themselves one of the fastest growing companies in history. There is plenty more room for growth as the sector is only now, for the first time, reaping the benefits of Tech.

    Based in the heart of Shoreditch the business has retained their 'start-up' culture. They are filled with ambitious, incredibly smart people who enjoy having a good time while having a genuine impact on the direction and success of the company. The business model has an ethical angle to it as well offering the chance for the team to be proud of what they are achieving alongside significant growth.
