A fast-growing technology firm from Birmingham, UK is celebrating after hiring its 50th member of staff following two years of tremendous growth.

The technology firm, named Digital Startup of The Year at the 2021 West Midlands Tech Awards, provides software to over 250 UK logistics firms helping them to streamline the way that they engage their self-employed workforce. This technology covers everything from onboarding subcontractors through to protecting compliance and payments – this software has been used by over 50,000 subcontractors since its launch in April 2021.

Hannah Jarrad, People & Culture Manager at Wise, said: “We’re delighted to have hit this major business milestone and to have done it in such a short space of time is genuinely outstanding. As we’ve grown the team across all departments, we’ve worked hard to make sure that we retain our culture of compassion and inclusivity that is at the heart of all of our decisions.

“Like every other business, we’ve navigated the difficult circumstances of the last couple of years carefully and we’re delighted to have been able to obtain Great Place To Work status along the way as evidence of our positive culture.”
