Gresham Computing opens UK innovation labs
Gresham Computing has launched its “Innovation Labs” in Bristol, UK as it looks to tap into local talent and drive more software development.
CTO Neil Vernon will lead the team of engineers and developers, and says he is a “big believer in the ‘serendipity of collisions’” – which the new space provides. Vernon adds that Gresham wants to “rip up the rule book” for data integrity technology.
The firm says employees do not have specific job titles, giving them the “opportunity to flex across different functions and areas of expertise, as well as take a proactive approach to shaping their own role”.
The new office space has video conferencing, stand up meeting rooms and break out areas to foster collaboration.
It also provides room for further expansion; as well as the Clareti (its transaction control software) R&D team, the innovation labs are also home to a global support team led by the newly appointed global director of customer success and service delivery, David Eagan.
Gresham has also been running a graduate program for the last five years, “nurturing” new tech talent and has hired five graduates into direct entry roles this year, plus an apprentice.
The team has built links with Bristol University, the University of Western England, and other universities in the south west of England – such as delivering “lunch and learn sessions” to finals graduates, and “playing an active role in technology forums” and IT “meet ups” in the city.
