The demand for computer power has never been higher, so how would you like to work for an innovative company that is taking the headaches out of procuring computing power for businesses, big or small, whenever they need it? Award-winning YellowDog believes there is already enough computer power in the world, but there is an imbalance between supply and demand.
YellowDog founder Gareth Williams realised back in 2013 that there were loads of computing devices out there which weren’t being used for large portions of the day, and whose potential compute power was sitting idle.
Using its innovative distributive computing technology, YellowDog worked out how to connect up devices from willing owners and call on that power instantly, to power compute-hungry calculations like 3D rendering and machine learning. This means companies, from startups to multinationals, don’t have to invest in hardware of their own while the hardware owners get money for their spare compute power.
Now, YellowDog – the company behind the world’s fastest virtual supercomputer with over 1,000 rendering customers in 38 countries – is looking for talented techies to join its team. It’s a time of exciting expansion for the company after raising over £2 million in investment, so there’s no better time to join.
Its 24-hour turnaround rendering service is already being used by animations studios for projects that will soon be appearing on terrestrial TV, Netflix and Cinema. With its eye on new markets to expand into, if you want to help change how distributed computing works, then YellowDog is waiting for your application.
"I’d always wanted to work in a company with a much higher growth potential, as part of a dynamic team, and to solve interesting problems on a daily basis. YellowDog came along with all of that and more, and having been welcomed in and got to grips with the challenges, I now wish I’d done it years ago!"

YellowDog is part of SETSquared, a group of growing tech companies based in the impressive Engine Shed in Bristol. It’s a tech incubator so you get to rub shoulders with some of the South West’s most innovative tech startups and take part in SETsquared’s business training courses, workshops and networking events for free. Engine Shed is a great central location – you are a five-minute walk from loads of pubs and restaurants (and a fantastic outdoor food market which pops up every Thursday). Commuting is very easy too, as Engine Shed is an extension of Bristol Temple Meads station, giving you very easy access to trains, buses and taxis. YellowDog likes to look after its staff – you get the day off for your birthday and the company is a member of the Free2Cycle scheme, meaning you can get a bicycle for free for simply riding to work every day. With company values of hard work balanced with fun, it is time you joined the team behind Bristol Post’s “2017 Startup of the Year”?
