Redgate spin-out Gearset wants to double headcount to exploit mega-bucks market
Redgate Software spin-out Gearset – one of Cambridge’s fastest growing technology startups – has launched an aggressive recruitment campaign to exploit a multi-billion dollar global market.
Founded less than two years ago, Gearset has rapidly established itself as the market-leading release management solution for the Salesforce platform and is relied on by some of the most recognised companies in the world.
Clients include global names like Johnson & Johnson, Accenture, IBM and TripAdvisor as well as globally influential locally based companies such as Arcus Global.
With a rapidly growing customer base, the company is looking to double in size by hiring marketing, sales and development roles at its Cambridge Business Park office in Redgate’s Newnham House building.
Gearset was launched in 2015 thanks to investment from Redgate and draws on the world-class alma mater’s extensive experience in the software sector. Gearset’s mission is to make deployment and collaboration on the Salesforce platform ingeniously simple and its unique focus on usability and quality has taken the market by storm.
The company employs eight people and is looking to expand out to 15 by the end of the year, with the promise of further growth in the near future. To put the market opportunity into perspective, Salesforce is growing at 30 per cent year-on-year and has revenue of over $8 billion.
Gearset is well on the way to becoming the de facto deployment tool for the millions of Salesforce developers and release managers around the world, and sees a huge potential for growth as it starts to tap into the potential of the market.
Gearset’s tool builds on the platform that Salesforce provides, so its market size is inherently linked to theirs. The market is huge and continues to grow rapidly.
CEO Kevin Boyle says: “We have massive potential to not only increase our market penetration over time but also grow as the market itself does. This is an incredibly exciting time for us. Our growth in the past two years has been phenomenal and we’re only just getting started.
“We're looking for smart people to join our ambitious team and make an immediate impact on one of Cambridge's fastest growing tech startups. We foster a collaborative culture that’s focused on encouraging you to get involved, from making key decisions that determine the direction of the product to supporting our customers on their journey to success. If you’re looking for a place to do great work, you’ve found it.”
Due to its rapid growth Gearset quickly became profitable so has no requirement for investment in the immediate future; its expansion is all organic.
