Nottingham-based telecoms provider Esendex celebrates 20 years championing excellence

The hunt is on for talented tech and IT professionals to join telecommunications provider Esendex, as the company celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The Nottingham-based business has grown from a team of five to more than 260 people worldwide, having spread its wings overseas to Spain, France, Australia and Germany since its founding in 2001. In June, it will expand its services into Italy.

Despite the pandemic, the firm has continued to hire for a number of senior positions, including a new head of technology transformation, chief marketing officer, chief technology officer and marketing manager.

Esendex estimates that it will hire another 30 people over the next year, with positions currently available for the following: Product Owners, Infrastructure Manager, Senior Developers and Site Reliability Engineers.

Richard Hanscott, CEO of Esendex, said:

“Over the last 20 years, Esendex has really helped to shape what it means to provide excellent customer communications. On a quest for a high-quality business SMS service, an early discovery was that first-class communication does not rely on a single channel, and use cases stretch way beyond marketing.

“Today, we work with more than 45,000 companies across the globe, and with the number of people using mobile messaging apps projected to grow to three billion by 2022, there is a huge potential for Esendex to continue to innovate and stay ahead of the curve.

“The next few years will be very exciting and we look forward to expanding our team to ensure our continued success.”

Last year, the company celebrated winning The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2020. Its mobile collections solution was the basis for its entry which consists of an automated workflow powered by the Esendex Decision Engine to collect small value debt from both businesses and individuals in a manner that is sensitive to the debtor and makes it easy for them to ‘cure’ their own account.

It also reported a record turnout for its flagship event, Esendex Live!, which aims to help businesses to get better results from their communication strategy. It was held virtually in March this year, with a 50% increase in attendees. The recorded video content has also been viewed more than 350 times.

Esendex is owned by global telecommunications company Commify, which is on track to achieve a turnover of €105 million this year, raising to €114 million by 2022. Commify’s portfolio comprises a wide range of business messaging brands including SMSpubli, SMS Envoi, Skebby and Text Anywhere.
