Creation of 200 jobs in Buffalo is "achievable," says Doolli Inc. CEO

Creation of 200 jobs in Buffalo is "achievable," says Doolli Inc. CEO Jul 25, 2015, 10:00am EDT Industries & Tags Dan Miner ReporterBuffalo Business First Related Content See All Homes of the Day The development of Doolli Inc. has been a slow build instead of a quick scale to this point. But that is about to change as the company formally rolls out the technologically complex platform it has spent four years building, with an early eye on the education market and a few other sectors, company leaders say. The cloud-based platform is designed to turn large amounts of data in many different formats into databases that can be used for a variety of different purposes. That transition was marked Friday with the announcement that the company is moving its 12-person team in Buffalo from the Brisbane Building to the UB Gateway Building and expecting to hire at least 200 more people in Buffalo over the next five years. It has been approved for the Start-Up NY tax breaks program. That amount of hiring would be a substantial workforce and make Doolli one of the largest tech shops in Western New York, but chief executive officer Scott Baxter says it is very achievable given the partnerships that are being developed and the market opportunity Doolli has identified. “I’m in the business of building a company, not just hiring people, but we’re getting a lot of traction right now,” Baxter said. “It’s an achievable number. I think we can beat it.” Baxter graduated from SUNY Buffalo State in 1984 and, in 1991, founded an Internet infrastructure that later went public before being acquired by Qwest Communications. He later co-founded Teoma Technologies, which was acquired by Ask Jeeves in 2001. He runs Doolli from the company’s 8-person administrative offices in Manhattan but has committed to doing all of the research and development in Buffalo, citing ready access to tech talent compared to hyper-competitive marketplaces like New York City or California. Since it was founded, Doolli has raised between $5 million and $10 million in private capital, with the latest investment coming earlier this summer, Baxter said. Those funds have come from a mix of financial institutions, individuals and Ithaca-based Cayuga Venture Fund. It got a $2.1 million New York state grant in the 2013 to help develop its platform. Doolli’s pricing model will be similar to other cloud-based companies in that there will be free accounts for individual users that will have limits on the size of a project and paid accounts for people doing more substantial projects, including institutions. SUNY Buffalo State announced a four-year agreement with Doolli in May to provide its platform to the campus community, and Baxter said there are some large announcements in the pipeline. The company expects to complete its move into the UB Gateway Building in August. “We’ve got a big R&D effort in Buffalo and a great team in place there,” he said. “We have some deals that are not announced yet where we’ll be bringing in chunks of people at a time.” Want Buffalo Banking & Financial Services news in your inbox?
