Telematics company The Floow to increase workforce by almost 50%

Aldo Monteforte

Telematics company The Floow is meeting increased demand for services from new and existing customers by embarking on an accelerated recruitment drive.

The Sheffield-based company will grow its technical workforce by almost 50% in the first quarter of 2016, following a year of significant development in which it built on its relationship with Direct Line in the UK and launched telematics-based products with a number of blue chip clients in Canada, Ireland and the US.

Last year also saw The Floow announce a commitment to partner with leading Chinese car service organisation Beijing CarSmart Technology Co.

Strong demand from an increasingly diverse customer base – including leading insurers, car manufacturers and roadside assistance providers across the globe - sees the company’s management team now looking to recruit technical candidates at all levels.

“2015 was a very busy year for The Floow, with 2016 looking even stronger thanks to a number of commitments with partners worldwide,” said co-founder and CEO Aldo Monteforte.

“We believe that success brings with it responsibilities, and we are equipping The Floow to meet the extraordinary opportunity the market is offering us.

“Our global client base expect uncompromising commitment to remaining at the bleeding edge of telematics innovation.

"We have therefore decided to accelerate our investment in talented resources.”

The firm is now looking to fill 20 new positions across all its technical teams, and is looking for additional mobile developers (Android and iOS), quality assurance engineers, platform engineers and data scientists.

In July,  Monteforte accompanied Prime Minister David Cameron on a trade mission to Asia, with the company also recently identified as one of Tech City’s Future Fifty.

Since its foundation in 2012 the company’s revenues have almost doubled year-on-year.
