Miro announces Amsterdam expansion and co-headquarters
Miro, the leading online whiteboard platform used by distributed teams to collaborate, workshop and brainstorm, has announced it will dramatically expand its presence in Amsterdam.
The company will open its new Amsterdam hub in February 2022 at Stadhouderskade, a historic building in the city centre. As its new co-headquarters with San Francisco, it will be Miro’s largest hub of its 11 locations in US, Europe and Asia.
Miro also announced it will also grow its Amsterdam-based workforce from 441 employees to nearly 1,000 in the next year, across all functions including Product, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success.
Miro co-founder and CEO Andrey Khusid said: “Amsterdam is an incredibly special place to me and an important hub for Miro. As an Amsterdam resident, I’m constantly inspired by the energy of this city and its growing technology scene. We’re confident this city’s vibrant community and culture will continue to inspire our employees to build the best collaboration platform possible for our customers.”
Amsterdam Deputy Mayor Victor Everhardt welcomed the news, and said: “We are very excited that Miro has chosen to grow and innovate further here in Amsterdam, especially since they are committed to joining initiatives that develop and foster home-grown tech talent.”
