Tech start up goes for growth

28 Jul 2021

Glasgow based tech startup Gigged.AI has launched a platform to help companies hire top UK digital talent faster, as remote working trends continue.  The artificial intelligence-driven technology transforms how companies source and on-board tech talent in the gig economy.

CEO and co-founder Rich Wilson, said: "The whole dynamic has shifted even further since the pandemic, and we've been able to take our vision through to market entry because of the hard work of our co-founder, chief technology officer Craig Short and his team. We're already helping clients find the best digital talent much faster than ever before".

Gigged.AI received funding in 2020 from Innovate UK, and then received  top rating from the innovation agency, against over 1,500 other projects.

John Brodie was recently appointed as non-executive chairman and the company is now targeting an investment round of up to £1 million, to support product development, grow its team and open a London office.

Angela Brown, formerly finance director at Symphonic Software has also been appointed as the company's CFO.

In addition to hiring over ten additional people before the end of the year, Gigged.AI also plans to launch an internal talent marketplace product for larger enterprises early in 2022.
