Digital doyen opens Cambridge tech hub
UK software development agency Softwire is exploiting the continued uptick of the Cambridge technology cluster by opening a new delivery office in the city – at The Bradfield Centre on the Science Park.
Softwire’s decision has been informed by the talent pool and opportunities in the area.
Softwire already has two other offices, one in London and the other in Manchester, and this newest extension has grown out of its work with big names across multiple sectors. Part of the company’s Cambridge vision is to inspire the next generation of developers into a world of digital design and software.
As a recurring theme that continues to dominate the tech industry, this move will help to give graduates the platform to learn and excel and help bridge the commonly discussed skills gap. Zoe Cunningham, managing director at Softwire, said: “Cambridge has become a booming target for tech startups, providing a wonderful opportunity for business growth.
“Encompassed by a vast hub of students, there is great potential to unlock the talent of today and turn more people towards the tech profession.”
Softwire has been named in the Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Work for’ list for the past nine years and evangelises flexible working hours and a clear path for career progression.
Cunningham adds: “Building an open culture that will enable every member of the team to work collaboratively is fundamental to creating the best service for our clients.
“ It is all about giving them the confidence to succeed and to harness the ever evolving, and ever in demand, world of technology. By doing this, not only will our customers have the tools they need to excel in their field and stride ahead, but we will continue to successfully grow our services and the overall business.”
Softwire’s operations at The Bradfield Centre are already up and running and the company says it plans further growth over the coming year from the new Cambridge platform.
