Located in the heart of fast-paced technology and budding entrepreneurial endeavors, Rescale too saw big changes and movement throughout 2013.
Over the course of the year, Rescale expanded its staff to welcome the addition of the following, Software Engineer: Daniel Bruce, Amey Chaugule, Mike Leung, Irwen Song; Senior Engineer: Zachary Davis; Business Development Manager: Ilea Graedel; and Vice President of Product Management: Istvan Jonyer.
Additionally, Rescale also hosted two student interns this year. Alan Humphrey worked as a business development associate and is currently a senior at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA. David Skinner joined Rescale in the fall as a software engineer, interning during his fourth year at University of Waterloo in Waterloo, ON.
A couple notable additions to the Rescale platform over the year include, integration of the live monitoring system, Live Tailing and collaboration tools Cloning and Sharing, which allow users to copy jobs and share simulations with colleagues.
This past year, Rescale added multiple new software packages, and will continue to add more before the year is over. In addition to increasing the software resources, Rescale also struck important partnerships with several software vendors, offering more benefits to customers. 2013 software partnerships include, Dassault Systemes, Vanderplaats Research & Development, Convergent Sciences, and most recently, MSC Software.
This was also an exciting year for academic institutions using Rescale. August marked the kickoff of the Rescale University Program (ReUP) where professors, students, and university faculty from around the world submitted simulation proposals to receive Rescale grants. Six universities were awarded funding to run jobs on Rescale’s platform. Currently in the middle of the program, the participating universities will conclude their analyses shortly after the beginning of 2014.
While Rescale enjoyed a great year in 2013, we are already excited and looking forward to what the New Year will bring. To our customers, partners, and investors, we thank you for your continued support. We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season!
