BlueSnap Keeps the Momentum Going
Waltham, Mass.—November 13, 2013—BlueSnap, a smarter payment gateway helping merchants convert more shoppers to buyers, has been in active growth mode over the past year, and today announced that it is expanding its East Coast presence near Boston, MA and opening a new office in Malta. The new Malta location will expand international reach, grow the business and complement its other key locations in Silicon Valley, London and Israel, which have all seen expansion this year.
The Boston office was originally opened in fall of 2012 and the new office is located in a high-tech focused area just outside the city. The BlueSnap team worked with architect firm Spagnolo Gisness & Associates and contractor J. Calnan and Associates to design, build and move, all within 5 months. The new office will support future East Coast growth and act as corporate headquarters for the innovative company.
“We are thrilled with the momentum we are seeing this year,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. “Our team has been working hard to drive new business, grow our current customer base and continue our product innovation. The new Waltham office will help foster team collaboration and empower our employees to help us grow the business. The addition of the Malta office helps us expand our reach even further into the European market which is seeing record growth in web-centric businesses.”
BlueSnap has also been acquiring new talent, having recently hired a new head of engineering, Faouzi Kassab, who has more than 20 years experience in software product development and IT services specifically in banking, financial services and mutual funds processing. Over half of his 20 years of IT experience is in global payments. Most recently, Faouzi was the head of IT for Distributed Applications at ING Retirement Services where he managed a team of engineers and architects responsible for the development and support of 170+ applications.
“BlueSnap offers innovative technology at an exciting time in the industry. There is such rapid adoption happening right now, and the checkout payment functionality is so critical to the overall customer experience and ultimately the merchant’s business,” said Faouzi Kassab, Senior Vice President of Engineering at BlueSnap. “It was obvious that BlueSnap is on the forefront of that innovation, and I’m thrilled to be a part of the team.”
