Customer data platform specialist Alchemetrics has launched its first international office by setting up a new hub in Lithuania as part of its expansion and modernisation plans.
Based in the capital Vilnius, the investment is designed to bolster existing capabilities, broaden the service offering and provide the platform for growth through the creation of four teams, including creative front end development, back end development, data and delivery teams.
As part of the move, Alchemetrics has struck a partnership with the Vilnius Coding School, which provides a training programme for tech resource in Lithuania.
Alchemetrics chief executive Dave Gurney 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.
“Our 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. I am confident that launching UAB Alchemetrics will significantly contribute to our overall business growth in the years to come.”
