Cyber security specialist expands operations with new office opening

A Bristol-based Microsoft cloud and cyber security specialist has expanded with a Manchester office opening, which is expected to create at least 10 jobs.

Stripe OLT has set up a Northern operation in the city’s Spinningfields district in what it says is a tactical expansion, one which allows Stripe OLT to establish stronger connections with existing clients as well as seek to extend and develop its partnerships with local organisations.

Director, Tom Robbins, said: “We are thrilled to launch our new office in Manchester.

“This expansion represents a strategic step for us, enabling us to strengthen our presence in this thriving city, while embracing fresh opportunities for growth and innovation.”

He added: “With several large scale partnership wins in 2022 we have been able to invest more into the business over the last 12 months.

“We’ve similarly just had our most successful financial quarter in Stripe OLT’s history, and we see no sign of this slowing down. We’re excited to enter Q3 in Manchester, and hope to bring new client wins and jobs to the local economy.”

The office opening follows impressive growth for the business, which has seen consistent financial gains since 2020.

The firm, which now has operations in Bristol, London and Manchester, is on track to have around 100 staff by the end of fiscal year 23-24, and is currently up 52% on headcount versus last year.
