One iota sets up Manchester base at The Sharp Project
North West leading multi-channel retail technology specialist One iota, founded by technology entrepreneurs David Hague and Damian Hanson, has opened a new Manchester base in The Sharp Project in east Manchester as part of its continued growth plans.
The five-year old company, based in Rossendale and acquired by Sanderson Group in 2013, whose clients include Superdry, Littlewoods, Mamas and Papas, Very and JD Sports, employs over 35 people, and hopes to expand the team at The Sharp Project by a further five developers in the near future.
David Hague, Chief Technology Officer for One iota explained: “We are continuing to grow very quickly at the moment to support client demand for our services and at present we have ten new positions available across the business. The move to The Sharp Project is a game changer for us and marks an exciting new phase for the business. Having a base close to the city centre is definitely an advantage for us and the relaxed environment in The Campus will suit our R&D work. The majority of our client projects are focused on developing websites, native applications, in-store technologies and digital signage, and The Sharp Project creates the right ecosystem for creativity and collaboration.”
Sue Woodward, Founder of The Sharp Project said: “It’s great to welcome One iota to The Sharp Project and we’re thrilled that they are recruiting local talent for their growing team. The Sharp Project is a thriving hub for established tech companies, and with their impressive portfolio of clients, One iota help strengthen our growing reputation as the place to be based if you want to be part of Manchester’s maturing creative digital sector.”
