Financial services software specialist Codeweavers will expand its headcount by 30% over the next year as it targets growth within a climate of online research.
Codeweavers has doubled the size of its team since 2014 and by June this year there will be 61 employees at the Staffordshire-based business following the success of new online tools which help dealers to capture customers online.
Now Codeweavers MD Roland Schaack is preparing to bolster his team and expand its current premises to accommodate the growth. Schaack said: “Our approach to software development has always been the same; we lead on quality.
“Now, we find ourselves recruiting to increase out headcount by around 30% over the next year and moving to new office premises to accommodate our growing team.”
As well as software developers, Codeweavers operates a client support team to support their clients’ use of various financial solutions which enable dealers to help customers to assess vehicle affordability, establish credit-worthiness and then move through the entire proposal process.
The tools also provide valuable information on customer buying habits that assist dealers in developing their stock mix and online finance proposition.
Schaack said: “We are always working on the next innovation to create imaginative yet practical tools to our customers that support our reputation for delivering tools that work ‘out of the box’.
“Now, our sustained success means we are in the great position of looking for yet more new talent to help us to craft the next generation of code and to support our growing customer base in plain English.
“It’s a lovely position to be in and we are grateful to all of our customers for their support that underpins our growth.”
