New Backbase office opens in the Dutch city of Utrecht

Backbase’s rapid expansion continues, globally, but also in The Netherlands, which is home to its international HQ. Having had a long-established presence in the Dutch capital city of Amsterdam, this market leader is also expanding its national footprint by opening its first office in Utrecht.

Renowned throughout the world as a pioneer in the digital transformation of financial services, Backbase is listed by Ovum as the Ultimate Digital Banking Platform Market Leader. With successful offices already established in the Americas, Europe and Canada, Backbase now turns its attention to the city of Utrecht, a place that’s fast becoming a powerhouse of industry in Europe.

We are delighted to have opened our first office in Utrecht. We already have hundreds of staff in our Amsterdam offices, and now expand to other parts of The Netherlands. Utrecht is an dynamic, prominent city and we want to have a strong base here. This development also brings great opportunities to the people of Utrecht and its environs.”

– Jari Tolkkinen, Backbase Development Manager

The company has big plans for this new office, which fortifies its presence in Utrecht. Backbase will gain more space to house its growing team and has already begun to attract talent from Utrecht and the surrounding areas. The local team is already operational, and Backbase is seeking more candidates to fill a host of exciting new positions.

“Our Utrecht office is testament to the sustained growth Backbase is experiencing. We are conquering the world with our digital expertise, but not forgetting the local market. The upward trend of our growth means we are constantly on the lookout for more people and more space. Utrecht offers a great opportunity to diversify nationally and to find talent and synergies in other regions of the country.”

– Jouk Pleiter, Backbase CEO

As this new office grows in scale, Backbase will be in full hiring mode for the coming months. For more information, visit workatbackbase.com
