Founded in 2004, Kentico is headquartered in the Czech Republic and specialises in marketing software. According to a press statement
, clients that run websites using Kentico’s software include Bacardi, Gibson and Vodafone, and the websites are run in more than 100 countries. From the new Amsterdam office, Kentico hopes to grow its business even further. Since many multinationals are headquartered in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, Kentico finds itself in close proximity to many potential new clients. In 2014, the region attracted 42 new headquarters and 46 marketing & sales offices, collectively creating 947 jobs.
The Amsterdam Area is also exceptionally well connected digitally. The region is home to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX)
, which is one of the world’s largest digital exchange platforms, renowned for its reliability, quality and low costs. Kentico’s choice for Amsterdam illustrates the city’s position as a thriving tech hub. Amsterdam has a global mindset when it comes to developing innovative tech companies, and it offers an exceptional labour pool: the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is home to 250,000 experienced ICT professionals, 55 per cent of which hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree. The outstanding quality of life also continues to attract top talent to the area.
