UserTesting To Create 70 Tech Jobs In Edinburgh

UserTesting, a Silicon Valley company which helps firms to tweak their websites and apps for the best user experience, is creating 70 new tech jobs in Edinburgh.

The recruitment drive in the Scottish capital has been facilitated after UserTesting secured funding of £3.2 million from Scottish Enterprise, a non-departmental public arm of the Scottish Government.

The company established its European headquarters in Edinburgh last year and staff there primarily work in Research and Development positions.

UserTesting’s clients include huge brands like Microsoft, NBC Universal, Go Daddy, Expedia, Adobe, Autotrader, Subway, Capital One, Lenovo, Freeletics and Deliveroo.

Announcing the new jobs in Edinburgh, UserTesting’s vice president of engineering, Fergus Kennedy, said: “It’s an exciting time as we receive this new grant from Scottish Enterprise and partner with the organisation to support growth in the tech community in Scotland.”

“This grant will help us expand our product portfolio through R&D investments, growing our product and engineering function with as many as 70 high-value technical roles at our European HQ in Edinburgh,” added Mr Kennedy.

Andy MacMillan, UserTesting’s chief executive officer, also commented, saying: “We continue to be extremely impressed with the quality of technical talent in Scotland, and with the help of the grant from Scottish Enterprise we look forward to growing our European presence.” Read more via e4s
