Smoothwall Ltd is delighted to announce that the company is expanding the business in Leeds, looking for a large number of technical roles to bolster its software development and service support offering.
Based in Leeds Valley Park, Smoothwall is recruiting over 20 positions with a particular focus on software engineering and development as it looks to cement its position as a leading hub for technology experts in the North. Smoothwall is working exclusively with Hays on this project.
Douglas Hanley, CTO at Smoothwall, said: “This year really represents a step-change for us, as we look to draw on the extremely talented pool of technology experts in Leeds and beyond. For years, many technology companies have focussed their efforts on London, but there is a growing, buzzing community of tech experts here and we’re thrilled to be opening up even more of our doors to them. As we look to grow our team of software engineers in the Leeds office, I can really see the company become a technology powerhouse for the region – there’s never been a more exciting time to work in this industry.”
Already active in the Leeds technology community, Smoothwall share knowledge to pupils, parents and teachers from local schools and also collaborate with local businesses to promote careers in technology for young people.
Smoothwall’s drive for recruiting staff comes as the company announces plans for a national roadshow of online safety workshops across the UK, starting in Leeds on 14th March, followed by Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and finally London on 17th October. The organisation recently held a two-day workshop at Rye St Antony School in Oxford as part of Safer Internet Day.
