Global digital product development company intive announced yesterday its entrance into the US market. With 17 established offices in Europe and Argentina, intive is now hiring a 50-person development team for their new locations in Santa Clara, California and New York City.
intive creates software-based solutions – including mobile apps, rich websites, IoT solutions, and automotive software – for enterprise companies across the world. Having worked with industry giants like BMW, ING, Zalando, and Vodafone to co-build innovative products – such as Mobile Device Management for BlackBerry and a mobile app for the best-selling kitchen appliance Thermomix – the move to the US now positions intive for expansion into the world’s most advanced software and information technology (IT) services industry.
And intive is already at work on a number of digital products for US and North American companies, including Viacom, BlackBerry, Ember, and Microsoft.
“Our launch into the US comes as the next step on our journey to better serve US-based clients,” says Andre Liao, VP and General Manager US at intive. In May of 2017, intive invested in Argentinian software development firm FDV Solutions to create intive-FDV, with the intention to better serve customers in the US time zone. “With offices now in the US, our clients can easily count on the expertise of the company, through our accessible developer teams on the ground.”
Thanks to the company’s decision to expand into the US market, intive will also take its healthy, European work-life balance to the States, giving US employees maternity and paternity leave and monitored overtime, according to a press release from the company. And their employees will have the chance to pitch in with intive’s various Corporate Social Responsibility projects, including developing apps for children with down syndrome.
The United States accounts for more than a quarter of the $3.8 trillion global IT market, and is home to over 100,000 software services companies. intive is therefore well poised for success as it expands its truly global operation.
“The US is home to many cutting edge industries,” says Mariano Stampella, FDV Solutions’ co-founder, who is now responsible for US business development at intive. “With offices now in Silicon Valley, we are excited to continue striving to push our talent by accepting US projects with embedded technologies in the automotive sector, as well as the IoT.”
