After a strong infusion of capital of about 25 million EURO from Shiji Networks last week, SnapShot Travel released a press communique, informing the opening of a new company office in Brno, Czech Republic. The move was explained by SnapShot VP Technology, Stephen Burke:
By setting up our developmental hub here in Brno, SnapShot satisfies the superb geolocation and talent requirements for our future business. The move also affords us great access and interconnectivity for serving our European customers west and east
With the new offices, SnapShot Travel shows its commitment to growth. The company will also hire 40 local and international developers to strengthen its talent pool, and to build out the next generation of hotel analytics and data software. The new platform will be built on an already existing foundation, called “the grid,” which is the industry’s first Hotel Demand Management platform.
SnapShot’s expansion in Brno is about the toolset, but also about geo-location and the talent pool. The company has chosen Brno as its technical headquarters, due to this city’s proximity to SnapShot teams in Berlin, the Austrian home offices, and the offices in Gliwice, Poland.
