Jobs at Aria and Gladiator Computers

Building award winning PCs since 1999, Gladiator fights for customer satisfaction, competitive pricing and unprecedented quality. We know that high quality should not mean having to come with a high price tag, and so our reputation as a respected source for high quality systems has continued to grow.

In 2006 Gladiator merged with Aria Technology and has lived in Manchester ever since. By combining the PC design and production experience of Gladiator and the resources and components purchasing power of Aria Technology, we are able to produce premium quality systems at industry-beating prices.

What our customers say

At Gladiator, we believe a great customer experience is our first priority. With our award-winning PCs, dedicated full-time sales and customer service team, and specialist enthusiast PC builders, we believe we are set up to deliver excellence.

We call this The Gladiator Vision for Success. But don’t just take our word for it, see what our customers have to say:

"I bought the WRAITH and I was sceptical at first. I had never bought a pre build before and the last PC I built was when I was 16 at college. But the build quality, specification and level of service has been fantastic. Genuinely super pleased with my purchase. I will be returning when I need to upgrade!"

"Fast, efficient and all around awesome. Build time, packaging, and care in cable management were all absolutely phenomenal. The technician even left a couple packets of Haribos in with the manuals and driver disks, which was a very pleasant surprise."

"This was my first experience in paying what I would consider to be a lot of money on a PC, so naturally I was a bit nervous going in. The guys at Gladiator PC were extremely helpful and were quick to answer all of my questions. Receiving email notifications to keep you up to date with the progress of the build was great. When it comes to upgrading parts or a completely new build, I'll absolutely be coming back to Gladiator PC!"

Why join Gladiator?

Here at Gladiator, we strive to create a welcoming, positive environment that rewards hard work and creativity. We have created a culture of success where staff have joined us in one role, developed their skills and confidence during their time with us, and have been steadily promoted into more senior roles to develop themselves even further.

We recognise that a successful operation requires top performance in all aspects of the business, and we motivate our staff to become high performers by allowing them to flourish and enjoy their time here at Gladiator.

The Work/Life Balance

As well as a large open-plan working space for every department, Gladiator staff benefit from easy transport links to and from Manchester city centre, training and progression opportunities, and a competitive commission structure for all sales staff.

We also offer fun perks, including pool and table tennis in our upstairs office area, Pizza Fridays and giveaways from our major suppliers.

What staff say:

"The workplace is engaging and I feel like everyday brings a new challenge, I'm constantly pushed out of comfort zone and it's extremely educational. All of the employees are very friendly and welcoming, they encourage asking for help when I don’t understand something. There is a pool table and a table tennis table for recreation, and in general there is a fun working atmosphere here." - Daniel Starowojtow

"No day is the same here and I like to be able to dip in and out of various roles. The work environment I find to be very inclusive and I was made to feel part of a team from the beginning. Pizza Fridays is a fun end to the week." - Fahad Ullah

"The MD is very hands-on and has really lit a fire under the business - things are roaring since he has been getting more directly involved this year. It's a challenging and exciting industry to work in, and no two days here are ever the same!" - Andrew Newberry
