Revel Systems, a leading provider of a cloud-based point of sale (POS) and complete business management platform, today shared details of the company’s planned expansion of its Lithuania location.
Due to strong customer demand and global company growth, Revel will increase its Lithuania-based workforce by adding 30 product and engineering, IT support staff by the end of 2020. The Lithuania location currently employs 180 staff and the planned hires will reflect a 75% growth in staffing since the Lithuania location opened. To accommodate the growth in staff, Revel is adding new bigger office space.
Originally serving as a European sales office in 2015, Revel’s operation in Lithuania expanded in 2017 to house the company’s new European operational centre of excellence with staff in fulfillment, support, engineering, billing, and quality assurance departments. The large, modernized, eco-friendly building is located in one of Lithuania’s tech hub neighborhoods in its capital city, Vilnius.
“Revel’s continued expansion worldwide is propelled by a significant increase in demand for our products and driven in no small part by the diligence and stellar performance of our staff,” said Leslie Leaf, Revel Systems’ Chief Customer Officer. “We are very proud of the continued work and remarkable talent shown by the Revel team in Lithuania and we’re keen to further invest in Lithuania’s impressive tech talent resources as we grow our European centre of excellence in 2020.”
The engineering and development work carried out at the Lithuania location provides a critical component of Revel Systems’ point of sale solutions worldwide. New roles in Lithuania will be filled by skilled and experienced senior professionals, including UX designers, Agile coaches, and cloud infrastructure engineers.
“Revel Systems, which started its operations in Lithuania in 2015, was one of the first foreign product development companies to establish a product development division in Lithuania. It is impressive that since then, the Vilnius office became the largest Revel Systems office globally. This success story demonstrates that Lithuania can compete on a global scale. We hope that together with the country’s talented IT professionals, the company will continue to strengthen the IT sector in Lithuania,” says Marius Skuodis, Vice-Minister of the Economy and Innovation of the Republic of Lithuania.
“Foreign investors choose Vilnius for many reasons. Vilnius meets their expectations by offering what business needs the most – openness, drive, ambition, quick processes and most importantly – talented people. It also creates a better quality of life for Vilnius residents – higher salaries, various opportunities to exchange international experiences, deepen professional knowledge and become part of global processes,” says Remigijus Šimašius, Mayor of Vilnius.
“We are observing a trend that many foreign investors choose Lithuanian for establishing secondary key centres. Revel Systems case isn’t different – its Lithuanian office became the biggest compared to other company’s offices around the world. We are pleased to see not only new companies investing in Lithuania but also the existing ones successfully expanding their local activities. Revel Systems is a prime example of a company that, after evaluating the potential of the Lithuanian ecosystem and talent, decided to create high value-added jobs, thereby enhancing the country’s competencies in the product development field,” says Gediminas Koryzna, Director of Business Development at Invest Lithuania.
