Exciting news for tech recruitment agency WeAreKeen. With their growing team and portfolio, they’ve decided to open up a new office in Berlin, Germany. Right in the thick of it, as Berlin is a thriving tech hub with many scale-ups and global companies. For WeAreKeen the choice of setting up an office in Berlin was easy. What better way to land in this new city, than to become part of the community at Ahoy Berlin, located in Berlin’s flourishing Prenzlauerberg area.
Berlin is booming
This year, German startups have raised a record €8.1bn from VC funds, more than the €6bn in all of 2020. Moreover, scaleups based in Germany are also making waves across the board on an international level. Many of the fastest hiring German tech companies are based in Berlin. It makes sense for WeAreKeen as an embedded tech recruitment agency to be where companies are growing and increasing their hiring needs. In addition, for WeAreKeen the opening up of a new office is a great step in their own European expansion. As founder Doeke Geertsma puts it: “Berlin is the ideal place for us to be right now. From here, we can better support tech companies during their hyper-growth phase. We always wanted to expand internationally, and the time was now. For us, Berlin is the place to be. We have already signed new Berlin-based clients like GetYourGuide, Zenjob, and Choco and are, of course, seeking more tech companies from the greater Berlin area that need support in their hiring needs.” Besides the aforementioned new clients, existing Amsterdam and Berlin-based clients like Just Eat Takeaway.com, OLX, Mollie, and Miro are also happy with WeAreKeen’s expansion because working where the action is, can only solidify an even better professional relationship.
