Bad Dinosaur - 12th July 2018 - Glasgow, UK
Bad Dinosaur, a software development agency founded in Edinburgh, has today opened its doors in the city of Glasgow. The new office space is located within Savoy Tower, a space run by Clockwise who provide well-designed contemporary workspaces within Glasgow city centre.
The expansion to Glasgow follows a period of great growth within the company, having worked with over 40 companies and individuals in the last 18 months to develop early stage ideas into prototypes and minimum viable products. The company also provides follow-on design and development work, as well as managed web hosting services.
The company has also grown from its two founders to a team of six dinosaurs within the past year and is now recruiting for a number of new key positions including business development manager, lead developer and a junior designer.
Russ Peterson, Director (pictured), said: “This is a new era for Bad Dinosaur. We’re excited to be expanding to Glasgow, a city twice the size of where we began but still just under an hour from our headquarters in Edinburgh. As well as accessing new business within Glasgow city, this strategic expansion puts us in a perfect position to service the entire central belt and both coasts while keeping the team relatively close together.”
Over the next twelve months, the company is aiming to become a key player in the software development industry within Scotland, before expanding further into the UK.
About Bad Dinosaur
Our mission is to provide a complete service for anyone who wants to build a digital product, taking you from an idea in your head to your first paying customers and beyond.
Headquartered in Edinburgh, UK, Bad Dinosaur was founded in 2013 to fill a specific gap in the market. Having worked as a developer both as a freelancer and in-house, director Kyle Whittington had grown frustrated with big agencies that worked slowly, didn’t include the client in the development process, and ended up delivering them a product that was not only expensive, but not what they really wanted or needed. In contrast, Bad Dinosaur strives to offer a complete service to anyone who wants to be in the tech sector and involves the client in the development process through weekly co-design meetings.
In late 2016, Kyle joined forces with Russ Peterson, a developer with years of experience and a knack for business development, in order to collaborate on bigger projects and diversify the range of services offered by the company. Since then, Bad Dinosaur has experienced a great deal of growth, and has been able to offer more services and hire amazing local talent, as well as expanding to Glasgow.
Bad Dinosaur loves learning about people’s early-stage ideas and working alongside startups to make their dreams into reality.
