Emmy award-winning Glasgow-based media tech firm expands to meet strong global demand

ThinkAnalytics, the global leader in content recommendations and search for the world’s largest TV and entertainment providers, is to expand its Glasgow base with the creation of 23 new technical jobs

ThinkAnalytics, the global leader in content recommendations and search for the world’s largest TV and entertainment providers, is to expand its Glasgow base with the creation of 23 new technical jobs. The expansion reflects the strong and growing demand for ThinkAnalytics’s technology from every corner of the globe.

Scottish Enterprise is supporting the company’s expansion with a £250,000 Regional Selective Assistance grant. With this backing, ThinkAnalytics is actively looking for talented software developers, information scientists, technical support and technical project management staff to join the thriving business.

The Glasgow-based firm currently serves over 200 million subscribers across 40 countries in 38 languages. It won a prestigious Emmy in 2015 for services to the TV sector.

Peter Docherty, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, ThinkAnalytics, said: “Scotland is a hotbed of IT talent, and our fast growth to date would not have been possible without our fantastic team in Glasgow. We have invested significant tech resources in Scotland over the past 10 years and now have the largest team of algorithm specialists, analytics and information scientists aimed at the media content search and recommendations market worldwide. We are now looking for more top-notch specialists to join the team as we embark on our next phase of expansion.”

 

ThinkAnalytics’ technology learns what you like watching – irrespective of which device you are using – and suggests other content you might like to watch. It is similar to the recommendations you get through Amazon and Netflix, but much more advanced. The search component is like Google for TV and video content. The firm helps TV companies such as Sky differentiate their offerings, improve loyalty and increase revenue per subscriber. Subscribers no longer complain that ‘there’s nothing on TV’ when clever algorithms have predicted content that will appeal to them.

The company was formed in 2001 and the majority of the R&D team hails from Strathclyde and Glasgow universities.
