Veeam Software, the leader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management, expands with additional 2,300 sqm in Business Garden Bucharest, to accommodate its growing team in Romania. The company has planned to increase its staff by 50% this year, thus reaching 600 employees at the end of 2019, compared to 400 at the beginning of the year.
The new office space, located in a modern A+ building recently built in the proximity of the easily accessible area of Grozavesti, adds 250 working stations to cater the expansion of Veeam’s Romanian team in the following three years. Together with the 3 floors occupied in AFI Park 5, Veeam Software reaches almost 7,500 sqm in Romania.
“We have grown locally at a very fast pace, evolving from zero to a company with over 400 people in only 3 years. Expanding our working space was a natural step, as we plan on continuing to grow our local team, by adding valuable, talented people to our hub. Veeam Software differentiates through the career path approach available to our team members. As such, they can build an end-to-end career, following all phases of a product lifecycle: from marketing to sales, finance and technical support. We are committed to offering our employees a clear path to grow and develop within the company, by providing them with constant opportunities to evolve and acquire new skills. As a result, over 20% of our employees have been promoted, either vertically or horizontally since we started our operations in Romania”, said Andrei Romanescu, Managing Director Veeam Software Romania.
The continuous local growth and expansion is in line with the strong results of the mother company. Veeam Sotfware has just reported a 26% YoY increase in global annual recurring revenue for Q2 2019, while it has recently exceeded $1bn in annual bookings.
Being named among the top 3 most vibrant workplaces by ABSL (The Association of Business Service Leaders in Romania) and shortlisted for the Romania Insider Employer of the Year award, the Romanian branch of Veeam Software is the largest Veeam hub in Europe. It nurtures a multicultural work environment, gathering 17 different nationalities that speak 19 different languages.
The company is continuously looking to attract talents to join its team, both fresh graduates and experienced professionals aiming for a career in sales, marketing, finance or technical support. Aside from the numerous development opportunities, the employees enjoy a thoughtfully built benefits and perks package, comprised of two components: a fixed one, which includes benefits such as healthcare services and meal vouchers, and a flexible one, which allows each employee to choose from a range of benefits that suit their needs. The flexible component includes benefits such as dental care services, parking spaces or gym subscription. Permanently preoccupied with the wellbeing of its employees, the company is frequently updating the benefits package so as to better cater the needs of the team members. As such, this year the company operated an upgrade to the healthcare services benefit and increased the value of meal vouchers, while is planning to add two more benefits, namely insurance for the employees’ children and books subscription.
