Software start-up invests in city offices


Xergy, the startup behind the new software for the oil and gas industry called Proteus, has announced a £120,000 investment in offices in Aberdeen.

The move into 25 Rubislaw Terrace coincides with plans to add 15 more employees to its 12-strong workforce.

Spread over three floors, the offices can accommodat­e Xergy’s growing workforce as well as providing a hub for freelancer­s and contractor­s to work remotely and flexibly.

Proteus is a cloudbased work management system that allows firms to find the right people for projects as and when they are needed.

According to Xergy, which is led by oil and gas veterans James McCallum and Colin Manson, the software will transform how the industry sources and uses talent to deliver projects.

Mr Manson, the company’s chief executive said: “Our new office in Aberdeen is inspired by this concept and set up to offer a creative, collaborat­ive and flexible environmen­t.”
