Tomoro MD - Ed Broussard


Fast growth AI Innovator, Tomoro creates 20 Scottish AI roles with plans to
invest £4m over next 3 years.

Tomoro, a leading Artificial Intelligence start-up that helps large enterprises unlock the value of AI through custom AI agents, has announced a recruitment drive to create 20 AI jobs in its
Edinburgh office over the next 12 months. The roles, which attract a salary of up to
£135,000 each, will form part of the company’s strategy to make the three-day
working week a reality.


Ed Broussard, Managing Director at Tomoro said: “Tomoro is focused on helping our
clients reinvent their businesses through deeply embedded AI. We’re already
working on some of the most ambitious AI projects in the world from our London
office and believe the talent, ecosystem and ambition to push the boundaries in
Scotland is just as strong. We see this investment in Scotland as a great opportunity
to accelerate our growth and become an active part of one of the most thriving data
and AI centres in Europe.”


Broussard has a history of bringing AI jobs to Scotland having made a similar
investment with Mudano, the last business he co-founded. In 2018 he established a
world-leading AI R&D department in Edinburgh for Mudano who subsequently grew
to become a leading financial services data and AI consultancy before being
acquired by Accenture in 2020.


Les Bayne, Chairman at The Datalab, Scotland’s Innovation Centre for Data and AI,
welcomed the news: “To have one of Europe’s most exciting AI start-ups make such a significant investment in Scotland is an exciting moment for the Scottish data and AI community and demonstrates the world-leading role Scotland can play in the AI revolution”


Tomoro works with large enterprises across Financial Services, Energy, Media,
Telco and other industries to help them embrace AI to drive new revenue and
reduce their cost base though custom-built AI Agents. The company recently
claimed that AI will transform productivity to such an extent that a 3-day working
week, with no loss of employee income, will be possible within 5 years.


Tomoro, which recently announced its partnership with NVIDIA, and also works in
alliance with ChatGPT creator OpenAI, says the new roles will cover all levels from
graduates to experienced AI engineers. The jobs created include AI engineers, AI
solution architects and AI consultants. Individuals will work to design, build and
deploy AI applications, working with large language models and organisational
datasets and knowledge. Teams will be hybrid, based across Scotland and
employees will also be working on-site with clients.
