EVONA TO DELIVER GROWTH FOR BRISTOL-BASED HUBOO
Ready for 2022, two award-winning Bristol companies have announced a collaboration to bring hundreds of software engineering jobs to the city.
We’ve have begun working with multichannel eCommerce fulfilment providers Huboo, to scale them by 120 heads across their tech department in 2022.
Having landed £60m investment in Series B funding lead by Emirati-based powerhouse Mubadala, recent Bristol Live Business Award: Large Business of the Year 2021 winners Huboo are in a period of accelerated growth driven by a step-change in eCommerce demand in the past two years. In order to deliver on their mission of European expansion, EVONA has dedicated 4 high calibre technical recruiters to recruit into their HQ and across Europe.
Creating hundreds of tech roles for the city of Bristol
In the four years since Huboo was founded, they have revolutionised the world of eCommerce fulfilment using environmentally sustainable methods that support a wide range of online retailers, including leading businesses in electronics, food & beverage and cosmetics. Their missions into 2022 see the company require over 120 additional heads across their tech department as they scale across mainland Europe, which have been given to recruitment specialist EVONA to deliver.
Paul Dodd, CTO and Co-founder of Huboo said:
“Scores of new and existing retail businesses now see their future in eCommerce but the infrastructure powering it was alarmingly outdated, inefficient, inflexible and expensive. We’re in a position now to invest in our growing team to roll out our full stack fulfilment solution on a wider international scale, expand our service offering and continue our software development.”
Co-Founder for EVONA, Ryan Hill, who has been instrumental in building the relationship between the companies said of the collaboration:
“It brings us great satisfaction to help champion local businesses, being very proud ourselves of our Bristolian roots. Helping bring talent into the city and grow local expertise is so incredibly rewarding, and it’s inspirational having a company of this calibre just a few doors down from our own HQ. It’s our pleasure to add-value to Huboo’s recruitment processes to leave them time and resources to innovate and concentrate on their company-wide objectives.”
A dedicated EVONA recruitment team of experienced recruitment specialists is headed up by Oli Rayner. Rayner has a decade of recruitment experience and leads a team of 4 on the project. Rayner added
“It’s great to support local business innovation in this way and we’re very excited to help Huboo grow and secure a foothold on the logistics and fulfilment market. We’re currently working closely with Huboo to deliver the best personnel and provide a solid foundation to deliver on their growth objectives. It’s exciting for both companies and of course, a step forward for the city.”
