Big data jobs boost for Glasgow as Cloudwick confirms new European HQ

California-based Cloudwick Technologies has selected Glasgow as the location for its European headquarters and is expected to create 58 new jobs in Glasgow.

Cloudwick is one of the leading big data solutions and services companies in North America and operates in the niche Big Data sector, helping companies define and implement their Big Data roadmaps with its innovative approach, Cloudwick OneTM. With the Cyber Security taking a centre stage, Cloudwick is also introducing an innovative Open Source Cybersecurity solution, OSAS, which will be offered to European clients from Glasgow.

The establishment of a European headquarters will allow the company to service the European operations of some of its big-name US clients and seek further opportunities for expansion outside the US.

News of Cloudwick’s investment follows the publication of the EY Scotland Attractiveness Survey last month, which noted that software was the top performing sector for FDI projects into Scotland, up 170% on the previous year.


Harshdeep Singh, director of operations for Cloudwick (EMEA) said: “We are excited to begin our European journey from Scotland, one of the fastest growing Big Data ecosystems in the world. We are a leader in the North American market with a 100% YoY growth and we aim to achieve the same growth levels in the EU by bringing our extensive experience and rich knowledge base from the US. The support from SDI and Scottish Enterprise will help us build and enrich the wider ecosystem and create a much stronger success story from Scotland.”
