The US IT company AtScale, focused on big data management, has formed its own team in Sofia – the first for the company outside the USA.
АtЅсаlе is based in California and its clients include organizations like JPMorgan Chase, Toyota, Visa, Groupon, GlaxoSmithKline, CNN, Bloomberg. The company was established in 2013 by experts from Yahoo!, Google, Netezza, IBM, Microsoft, Salesforce, Cisco and Oracle.
The team was formed in a move to develop a successful solution to help companies convert big datasets into business intelligence and intelligent analytics tool. Thus, the company develops a flexible platform that combines access to data from different locations where they are stored, as well as offers visualization and management of datasets.
Sofia was chosen to be the first location in Europe also because of the Bulgarian connection in the company – Momchil Mihaylov, vice president and general manager for Europe.
AtScale is already recruiting a team of programmers. The available positions can be seen here.
In mid-January, the company announced it has successfully completed the latest round of its funding talks in the amount of USD 50 million led by Morgan Stanley. New investments will help AtScale to enhance its global leadership in the Data Warehouse Virtualization market and to expand its business in Europe and Asia.
