SE backs investment
Colorado tech firm Cherwell adds 40 jobs in Dundee
Cherwell executives visited Dundee to announce the investment
Colorado-based service management company Cherwell, is creating 40 jobs at its facility in Dundee, following a £3.1 million research and development (R&D) grant from Scottish Enterprise.
The grant supports an £8.9m investment by the company to develop new technologies allowing businesses to automate services across their enterprises.
Scotland’s Minister for Parliamentary Business Graeme Dey, who announced the funding with company executives at the Dundee facility, said the investment was “testament to the highly-skilled and talented workforce we have and our reputation as an innovative nation.”
Josh Turpen, chief product officer (Global) at Cherwell, said: “It is an honour to have received this support from Scottish Enterprise which has enabled us to continue our expansion in Scotland and in the Dundee area in particular. As our growth accelerates globally, our Dundee R&D centre has proven itself to be a boon for our engineering efforts with highly-skilled talent available from a thriving tech hub.”
Since the opening of the Dundee R&D centre last year, Cherwell has been actively working with local universities to develop a stronger recruiting pipeline for women into engineering. The company also has ambitions to develop its own talent pipeline to sustain its ability to conduct R&D in Scotland over the long term.
