Silicon Valley technology and data consultancy Transiris Corporation has selected Glasgow for the next stage of its international expansion and is set to create 26 jobs.
Transiris Corporation, a US-based technology and data consultancy headquartered in Silicon Valley, has selected Scotland for the next stage of its international expansion and is set to create 26 jobs at its new office in Glasgow. The expansion is supported by £250,000 of Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) funding from Scottish Enterprise, which was awarded to Transiris following a competitive review.
Transiris, which is continuing its rapid international expansion, is set to create more than two-dozen jobs at its new office in Glasgow. Most of the new roles will be ‘high value’ jobs (i.e. with salaries approximately 20% higher than the national average), and a number of these roles will be targeted specifically towards graduates.
This major announcement follows the publication of the EY Scotland Attractiveness Survey, which highlighted a massive 56% growth in the number of digital foreign direct investment projects coming to Scotland, and a recent Tech Nation report also noted that Glasgow is attracting a new generation of tech start-ups and workers, with a strong focus on data science and data-driven innovation.
Transiris, which also has operations in Canada, Spain, Romania and Austria, develops technology solutions in areas such as Digital Automation, Digital Marketing, Big Data, and Data Analytics. The new base in Glasgow will provide services to global Fortune 500 companies.
According to Transiris’ CEO, Silvian Centiu, the decision to invest in Glasgow was fuelled by a desire to access cost-effective talent, in particular data scientists and AI engineers.
He said: “We’re always looking for the best people anywhere in the world – that’s how the workforce generally develops these days. Scottish universities include some of the best in the world, and there’s a strong culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. We found a very good business infrastructure here, and a culture that’s viable for a growing company.
“The strong communication, friendliness and openness to change that we’ve seen in Scotland, combined with capability and high professionalism, will give us the competitive advantage we’re looking for. Based on what we’ve seen so far, the support in the business environment is comparable to Silicon Valley, which is a place we thought was unparalleled in that aspect.”
Transiris is a certified digital automation partner with IBM, Oracle, Adobe, salesforce, UiPath, etc., and is frequently listed as a Top 10 digital marketing company in US industry publications. Clients include Cisco, ThermoFisher, HPE, Bank of Montreal, and Vodafone.
