Just a few weeks ago, I shared the news that we’re opening an engineering site in Toronto. Today I’m thrilled to announce that our global momentum is continuing with the establishment of an engineering site in Warsaw, Poland.
Similar to Toronto, Warsaw has an exceptional talent pool and is a center of tech innovation. To launch this new office, we have acquired Polidea, a software services firm that provides us with an immediate presence of talented developers in Warsaw. This team of nearly 70 new Snowflakes will immediately accelerate our product development efforts in several key areas, and provide a strong technical and cultural foundation as we expand this office in the future.
“This acquisition is fantastic news for our employees and the whole software ecosystem in Poland, and being selected by Snowflake is an appreciation of our skills and hard work. I’m looking forward to building and growing Snowflake’s presence here,” said Grzegorz Kapusta, Polidea CEO and newly appointed Director of Engineering and Snowflake Warsaw Site Lead.
I’m pleased to welcome all of our new teammates to Snowflake, and look forward to moving even faster together on our mission to Mobilize the World’s Data.
