Edinburgh tech firm to create new engineering jobs after £1.4m funding

A technology firm that has developed world-class indoor positioning software is creating new jobs in Edinburgh after securing £1.4m funding.



Sensewhere has developed technology that uses signals from indoor electromagnetic sources like Wi-Fi routers and Bluetooth to pinpoint a user’s location in areas like shopping centres and airports – where GPS signals from satellites are weak or blocked.

The new jobs are being created in engineering roles covering areas such as big data, cloud development, location technology and software development. Sensewhere already employs 24 staff worldwide, including 18 at its head office on Edinburgh’s Princes Street.

Its international offices are in Mountain View, California, China’s capital Beijing, and Shenzen in south-east China. The company’s original office here was in the City of Edinburgh Council’s joint incubator with the Shenzhen Municipal Government.

Sensewhere started life as a spin-out from the University of Edinburgh, and has benefited from the city’s academic credentials.
