Keith Steele IOTech Systems

Who we are

In 2018 I set out on an ambitious plan with my two colleagues Andy Foster and Steve Osselton to create a world leading IoT Edge software company. Our aim has been to create software platforms and tools to help accelerate the development, deployment, and management of software applications at the IOT Edge and to become a global market leader.

Our strategy is to leverage open source to speed product development and align with global technology ecosystems. Our Go to Market is through a channel strategy incorporating the key global IoT players who are looking to leverage OT software solutions and skills they do not currently possess. To date our partners, include: Intel, HP, Accenture, Schneider and Microsoft.

In 3 years we have grown to nearly 60 people located across the world and our products are now in use across the world deployed across a variety IOT Edge vertical markets including smart factories, process automations smart cities, smart energy, and smart venues, all of which will have dramatic and positive impact on people’s lives in the future.

Living and Working in Scotland

Working in Edinburgh you will be surrounded by warm, friendly people with easy access to good food, pubs, magical parks and even an extinct volcano, all of this in a vibrant city which appeals to nature lovers, foodies and shoppers alike.

The public transport is easy to use and we are situated right in the centre of Edinburgh on the famous George Street so very easy to travel to from the outskirts.

Edinburgh is such an exciting city that I decided to re-locate from my home in Newcastle. This just shows what an amazing place Scotland is to live and work in.

It is wonderful to be part of Scotland’s booming tech sector, which just keeps going from strength to strength. There is such a supportive drive behind tech start-ups and with over 23% of the Edinburgh workforce in digital roles and supported by world-leading universities I know we are in the right place.
