Pythagoras expands Midlands presence

IT firm Pythagoras is expanding its presence in the West Midlands after moving into an innovation centre at the University of Warwick.

Pythagoras, which also has offices in Maidenhead and London, employs more than 100 staff and is looking to increase its headcount of 16 in the Midlands as it continues to grow.

The company works with a range of universities across the UK helping them to manage the student experience from before they go to university through to when they graduate and become alumni.

Russ Hardy, pre-sales consultant at Pythagoras, said: “We have enjoyed a very strong period of growth and, as such, needed to expand and it’s great for us to be able to do that at the Blythe Valley Innovation Centre.

“We wanted to maintain the central location because it’s convenient for travel to and from client sites and is great to host client presentations.

“The fact that we have been able to grow into the Innovation Centre has been a huge benefit and has made it a seamless expansion.”

Mark Homer is the manager of the Blythe Valley Innovation Centre and he said it was a testament to the region and the centre that Pythagoras had chosen to grow there.

He added: “There is no question that Blythe Valley is a great location for businesses to be based – especially when they need to travel around the region.

“And the fact that we can offer space on a flexible basis means companies such as Pythagoras can grow here and, if the need arises, expand further with us.

“The fact that they have like-minded businesses also based in the same building is an additional factor in this being the perfect base for their Midlands office.

“It’s great news for the region that they continue to grow and create new jobs here.”
