Quinyx CEO and Founder Erik Fjellborg commented: “As a European market leader, we have a lot of respect for the U.S. market and the U.S. workforce. We believe that with Quinyx, North American companies will have the opportunity not only to increase the productivity and profitability of their operations but also improve the work experience and engagement of their shift-based, deskless workforce. We have ambitious goals to grow revenue and add headcount and believe that Boston is an ideal location because of its deep pool of talent, a heritage of innovation and embrace for a start-up culture.”
Currently, Quinyx has over 500,000 users from 700 customers around the world. The new U.S. presence expands the operational footprint beyond existing locations in the UK, Finland, Germany, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands. As part of its U.S. expansion programme, Quinyx has relocated key employees to Boston, namely Andreas Sjölund (Co-founder and CRO), Mattias Anrep (Global Head of Operations) and Laurie Pace (Marketing Director U.S). Currently hiring locally for their U.S. headquarters, Quinyx has added Rob Desmond, VP of Sales U.S. to its growing team. By the end of 2020, Quinyx projects to have expanded its U.S. operations and headcount significantly.
Earlier this year, the company raised $25 million in funding, led by existing investors Alfvén & Didrikson, Battery Ventures and Zobito. The investment goes to further accelerate Quinyx’s rollout of technologies that automate and streamline workforce management processes to unlock the full potential of the flexible workforce in the U.S. The majority of the investment will be used to scale the business in the U.S. market.
