Distributed, the London-based tech talent resourcing platform, has successfully secured £5million in a Series A funding led by Guinness Asset Management. The firm also received additional funding from other high-profile industry leaders and its Seed investor, Fuel Ventures.
The company provides a platform that allows clients to work with fully managed, globally distributed teams so they can easily and cost-effectively build and maintain software to a higher standard faster, safer and with more visibility.
Callum Adamson, CEO, and Co-founder of Distributed says: “The workforce of the future is on-demand, adaptive, and independent. Distributed is here to enable those independent careers with more benefits than permanent employment, and to ensure that our customers can access high-quality, motivated talent effortlessly with our enabling technology. This will see businesses building with smaller, more specialised core teams, supported by an Elastic Teams™️ of experts that can be deployed to tackle any software goal in support of our customer’s missions.”
“This funding round helps us to continue to rebuild work and re-tell its story. It represents a better way to build for our customers and a brighter future for those pursuing independent careers in the tech industry. I could not be more grateful for the trust and support our customers and Elastic Team™ have shown us over the past couple of years and we are very excited to continue this journey together.”
Ashley Abrahams, Fund Manager at Guinness Asset Management, adds: “Guinness is very happy to be supporting Distributed during this time of industry disruption.
