The Basel-based Canoo Engineering AG, a software company specialized in web-based multi-channel business applications, is expanding to the IT metropolis Zurich and will open a branch within the next few weeks.
“The key aspect for this decision is to establish an even better relationship to our customers in Zurich. Plus, we will get direct access to the local job market.”, says Hans-Dirk Walter, CEO of Canoo.
During the past 15 years, Canoo has made a name for itself by being a vital contributor to the Java community, by being a pioneer in agile software development and by being a customer-oriented project partner. After a period of non-forced, moderate growth the company is now going to establish its brand systematically in Zurich. “Visibility is quite important to us – especially since our order-books are well filled and we hope to get important impulses from the recruitment market and hope to attract and retain top talents.”, Michael Gassmann, Head of Canoo Zurich, explains.
Michael Gassmann is responsible for establishing the new location since December 2016. Before working at Canoo, he worked for the Zurich-based software company Netcetera in different positions.
The new offices will be opened in Q2/2017. From its new location, Canoo will offer all services including consulting, project work and product development.
