At Distilled we believe in giving back

We support our employee's desire to give back to their local communities and environment, and we amplify the impact they have with the charitable causes they care about most. Our donation matching and employee volunteering programs grew directly out of the commitment that our employees feel toward charities that are important to them. The entire company understands that with our success comes the responsibility to give back to the community.

Walking the length of Ireland

This year walkers, joggers or runners at Distilled completed the first ever Malin to Mizen New Memories Challenge.

We walked, jogged or ran enough km’s get from Malin Head (the most northerly point in Ireland) to Mizen Head (the most southerly point in Ireland).  But it wasn’t just about the 549km from Ireland’s tip to toe, we also wanted us to make some new memories along the way which were captured on #distilled-malin-to-mizen-new-memories-challenge

This was all in aid of the Alzheimer Society of Ireland  - a fantastic service that works across the country in the heart of local communities providing dementia specific services and supports, advocating for the rights and needs of all people living with dementia and their carers.

Stepping out for the Irish Cancer Society

Our SRE Team decided to step out for the Irish Cancer society in July and aimed was to clock up 1,000,000 steps between them all!

During their ‘Step Out’ however, the SRE Team outdid themselves, and after bashing their collective heads together, they decided that since Distilled was going to DOUBLE what they raised, that they were going to DOUBLE their step challenge! TWO MILLION steps, UNREAL!!

They did it, and the Irish Cancer society certainly benefited from their amazing gesture and donation.

Our wellness pledge for Pieta

Pieta do vital work in the area of suicide intervention and suicide prevention and this year we took part in the Darkness into Light fundraiser and surpassed our target. Some of our teams also made pledges in support of taking care of our Mental Health, like going for sunrise swims, meditating and taking photos of new things each day.


Our HR team gives back

Our HR Team organised a Walking challenge in aid of The Parkinson's Association of Ireland. They mapped out a distance of 334km, stopping off (virtually) at each of the team's houses. The team surpassed their target and Distilled matched their donation too.

It was a great team bonding experience (virtually) and a great feel good factor in supporting a charity so close to their hearts.

"I found my first rental property ot the tender young age of 17 when I was at the very first stages of my professional career making the big move from Galway to Dublin. Daft has continued to play an important role in my life ever since, having rented every property I’ve ever lived in on Daft and eventually using it to buy our home.When the role with Distilled was advertised I immediately felt connected to it. During the interview process I was immediately sold. Everyone was so friendly, I loved the ethos and the culture of the company and the passion that everyone displayed for the company was infectious."

Orla Ryan

"Everyone in Distilled is on one team, and you don't get that in a lot of other companies"

Fergus Mc Hugh
Product Team Manager

"From the interview I knew that the Distilled culture was exactly what I was looking for. You get to work on projects that you would want to use, and you can see clearly how it will benefit the end user. Getting that kind of real-time feedback from your users as a tester is knowledge that you can not buy."

Enda Brody
Mid Level QA Engineer

"The support I received from my managers when I decided to apply for an internal role was second to none. My manager did interview prep with me, gave me great career advice and even made sure to give me a pep talk before the interview!"

Lauren Battersby

"I have loved working for Distilled over the years, especially during the pandemic when our “Housing Heroes” initiative provided accommodation for our doctors and nurses who needed somewhere to isolate during the Covid crisis. Feeling like I could be involved in something so important and worthwhile really made me feel honoured to be a part of such a fantastic team."

Val Sorohan

"I enjoy the culture, the diversity and character of the people I work with and variety of work. At Distilled, I'm surrounded by a lot of smart and technically adept people - both brilliant software engineers and also non-technical employees who are excellent in their roles. I enjoy that it never gets boring and there are plenty of opportunities to add value. There is a rewarding feeling working together and helping each other to create software products which really help and empower people in their daily lives."

Shane Lilly
