We'll be using our new Austin base to service and support our growing US customer base, and a raft of new hires to help expand our AI-powered cloud platform.
The move follows a £4 million investment by Gresham House Ventures in May and the recent appointment of Chris Underhill as chairman. Our recently hired 12 new staff for the US base pushes our total global workforce over the 100 employee mark.
Heads of Sales Adam Ellmore and Tom Stephenson, who have worked with us since 2019, will lead the US operation, developing young talent and building on the 700+ retailers and brands we've worked with over the years.
Our CEO and co-founder Liam Patterson said, “We’re delighted to announce our new Austin office in one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the USA, giving us the foundations to develop our relationships with US clients like Volcom and fashion marketplace Garmentory, as well as introducing our platform to other successful brands and retailers. Google Shopping has become more competitive, so companies are looking for cost-effective ways to optimise their offering. We’re confident our platform and team will help them deliver.”
Bidnamic LLC was incorporated in August 2022, based at the Capital Factory: a collaborative hub and community for tech startups in Austin. The team will be raising the company’s profile in the US by attending major industry events including Shopify in Las Vegas.
