New roles for cloud engineering company D55

Manchester Technology Centre

Manchester-based D55, an Amazon Web Services consultancy partner, is creating 20 new roles thanks to new contract wins.

The cloud engineering company, based at Manchester Technology Centre, was founded by Jonathan Rothwell and Rhys Jacob, and specialises in the energy sector.

It is now looking to recruit around 20 new IT specialists to work on complex cloud native IT projects within the energy and sustainability industry.

The new recruits can be based anywhere in the UK or choose to work in its Manchester head office.

The new teams will work across a variety of projects, including developing new software products and getting them ready for market, helping companies move existing IT applications to the cloud, and providing hands-on support to project teams that lack manpower or development expertise in AWS.

The company is looking for highly skilled IT professionals ranging from business analysts, developers, testers and quality assurance.

D55 is working talent acquisition specialist Reedmace Solutions to attract and hire the specialists, and rapidly scale-up the organisation.

Jonathan said: “We are really pleased to be working with Reedmace Solutions in a bid to get the right talent to help drive our business forward.

“We deliver products that solve industry problems, largely in the energy and sustainability sectors and as our business is growing with immense speed, we want to ensure we have the resources to continue to elevate our organisation.”

Rhys added: “Having secured a significant amount of new business in a relatively short time, we need to expand our headcount rapidly. However, learning how to attract the right people to expand our team ourselves both now, and in the future is of huge importance to us and will save us time and money.”

Dan Corcoran, owner of Reedmace Solutions, said: “We are helping D55 by immediately supporting the Talent Acquisition and hiring process whilst giving them the ability to be as self-sufficient moving forward as possible.”
