Scottish software engineer set to create 100 jobs with new Leeds base
A Scottish software engineering company has announced that it is creating 100 new jobs as it opens up a new Yorkshire office.
xDesign, an independently and owner-operated product and software engineering company based in Edinburgh, has announced its new office opening in Leeds.
The company has said that it is planning to create 100 jobs in the region over the next three years, aiming to accelerate its growth.
This is the company’s first base outside of its main Edinburgh headquarters.
Euan Andrews, managing director, commented: “Opening a new office in Leeds is core to our overall growth strategy that sees xDesign opening offices and creating jobs throughout the UK, and it’s most critical for us to plan this expansion thoughtfully with a focus on how we can best support local businesses and talent.
“It’s important to us that we find people to work with and collaborate with who have regional and local insight and expertise, because we know how crucial that knowledge is to building a solid community, which is our Number One priority as we work to make meaningful contributions to the area.”
Matt Ward, head of Northern England at xDesign, said: I’m thrilled to be leading this expansion.
“As an area resident and professional, I know how vibrant the tech community is here, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with the area’s incredible talent, firsthand.
“Continuing to build xDesign’s community in the North is something we’re all very much looking forward to.”
