Customer data platform specialist, Alchemetrics has launched a new office in Lithuania as part of its rapid expansion and modernisation plans.
Based in the capital Vilnius, the investment bolsters existing capabilities, broadens the service offering and provides the platform for growth in the coming years through the creation of four teams including creative front end development, back end development, data and delivery teams. To staff up, Alchemetrics has developed a strong relationship with Vilnius Coding School who provide an amazing training programme for tech resource in Lithuania, meaning that it has the ability to scale very quickly with some of the world’s most talented young developers.
Vilnius is also one of the three global centres of excellence for blockchain and with Alchemetrics’, and its analytics and insight business Rubicon’s interest in solutions for the future, the opportunity to tap into this resource was clearly an additional attraction when deciding where to invest.
Dave Gurney, CEO of Alchemetrics said: “Lithuania’s coding and development reputation is exemplary providing some of the best IT talent in the world. It therefore made sense for us to open the office out there to support our ambitious growth plans. Alchemetrics’ culture has always been of paramount importance and so when establishing an offshore team, it was crucial to us that our colleagues in Lithuania felt part of the business. Daily video stand-ups and bi-monthly staff exchanges between the UK and Lithuania allows us to operate as one. This really is an exciting time for Alchemetrics and I am confident that launching UAB Alchemetrics will significantly contribute to our overall business growth in the years to come.”
Cyril Law, CTO of Alchemetrics added: “The quality of Information Technology professionals in Lithuania is exemplary. Their attitude to work, approach to being able to develop new skills, willingness to learn and focus on being part of a wider team is remarkable. This is my second time leading a team in Lithuania and I’m delighted in the calibre of individuals who make up our team. It’s been a great journey so far expanding our business in Vilnius and look forward developing our capabilities and platform in the coming months.”
