Finnish technology and design company Eficode is expanding operations to the Benelux market, with a new office set to open in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, later in September.

Eficode has seen its software development and operations-related products and services business grow strongly in the Nordic countries during the past year, and it was recently the recipient of a six million-euro minority investment from Bocap to speed up internationalisation further.

The Finnish company supports its customers in renewing themselves digitally, and its 120-strong software development and operations (DevOps) team is the largest in the Nordic region and among the largest in Europe.

“The demand for DevOps services and modern software production methods is experiencing continuous growth on a global scale,” says Heikki Hämäläinen, chief commercial officer at Eficode. “The Netherlands is an attractive target for us due to its geographical location and top experts. Amsterdam will be our beachhead for the DevOps markets in Continental Europe which are easily accessed from Amsterdam.”

Eficode’s new Amsterdam office will be opened on 26 September by Finland’s most successful football player ever, Jari Litmanen, who represented Amsterdam’s top-flight club Ajax on the football pitch for many years.

“Building software is a team sport just as much as football is,” Litmanen comments. “Everyone has their own role to play, but victories are always achieved as a team.”

Eficode’s new Benelux Area manager is Andre Sibov.
