Godel, the nearshore software development company, has reported its annual turnover has reached £13.8 million for the year to December 2017. This is a 53% increase in turnover on FY2016 when revenues reached over £9 million.

The company has won a string of awards in 2017 including, the Hiscox Sunday Times Tech Track award for Best Management Team, a European Software Testing Award, been included in the Forbes top 500 global software companies, acknowledged as a fast growing company in the Deloitte Fast 500 EMEA and has won many other industry awards. It was also included in the Hiscox Sunday Times Tech Track top 100 tech companies listing for the first time.

“This year has really put Godel on the map, with clients and prospects, but also within our industry being recognised by our partners and industry peers,” explains Neil Turvin, CEO, Godel.

“Demand for our software development skills by large UK brands like Virgin Holidays, Experian and The White Company continues, as does the need to grow their teams so they can scale their businesses rapidly to keep up with the demand that our increasingly digital world brings.”

In 2017 Godel invested £500k in enhancing its dedicated Cloud and DevOps division, created new management roles in DevOps and Quality Assurance to support it and has been awarded several Microsoft and Amazon Web Services partner accreditations. Employee count also grew by 50% and is expected to do so again in 2018.

“We have an extremely strong forecast heading into 2018 covering a wide range of different technologies including .Net, Java, PHP, cloud, business intelligence, AI and machine learning as well as automation and quality assurance projects – this is on top of significantly growing the existing customer base,” explains Turvin.

“It’s been a truly meteoric year for the company – we’ve hired some of the best people and invested in training and accreditations – but we’ve stuck to our mantra of doing the right thing by clients and doing software development properly, and that is at the heart of our success.”

Off the back of its success, Godel, which has software development centres of excellence in Europe, has donated £50,000 to the Chernobyl Children Charity which will result in it being able to improve facilities for children and adults in need.
