Scub, a digital services provider based in Angoulême, has opened its first agency in Bordeaux. The company, which specializes in developing innovative digital solutions, is expanding its blockchain R&D.
Digital: a strong point for Angoulême-Bordeaux
In June SCUB, a company founded in Angouleme in 2003, opened an agency in Bordeaux in order to support its expansion and optimize further recruitment.
SCUB is a digital services provider specializing in agile methodology and Java, Cloud, Mobile, and Big Data.
In Bordeaux SCUB is developing its blockchain R&D, especially its “Blockchain Inspector” software, which provides a solution for monitoring blockchains using artificial intelligence.
The agency plans to recruit 10 additional employees in 2017.
An attractive ecosystem in Bordeaux
4 key factors led SCUB to choose Bordeaux:
- the TGV line providing easy access to Angoulême from Paris
- Bordeaux’s concentration of experienced developers and training programs focusing on digital technology
- Bordeaux’s reputation among Parisian executives as a “dream city for Parisians” supports the recruitment strategy of enticing Parisian executives to move to Bordeaux
- A dynamic digital environment, especially around the Cité Numérique (Digital City), which Scub plans to join once it opens
Invest in Bordeaux supports the company in its new phase of recruitment and developing relationships with engineering and coding schools, as well as with all local players in the digital sector.
