Founded in 2007 and based in Glasgow, Edge Testing helps companies to find defects in their software before it is released on the market. Developers of video games, mobile apps and internet-of- things products are among the company’s clients, alongside organisations such as Heineken, Aberdeen Asset Management and the Student Loans Company. In April it opened a second UK digital test hub, in Birmingham, creating 60 jobs. Sales reached £10.1m in 2016, a figure that founder and chief executive Brian Ferrie, 42, is aiming to double by 2020. The firm also runs the Edge Academy to train software testers in order to offer graduates, school leavers and career changers an opportunity in IT.
