The Scalers 2021 Recap: A Year of Phenomenal Growth

2021, folks. It’s almost over, but boy do we have a ton of exciting things to share! In a nutshell, it’s been a year of phenomenal growth for the business. The pandemic could have certainly thrown a spanner in the works, but due to the groundwork put in place in 2020, we handled it even better than last year. We onboarded an enormous amount of engineers and other recruits remotely, and have the policies and methodologies in place to continue should restrictions rise again. So jump on board The Scalers’ rocketship as we blast into orbit and look back at the past year’s biggest wins, key events, and perhaps most importantly — the new crew.

It’s all about partnership

2021 saw us explore new territories and expand our partnerships. We broke into North America — with partners signed in both the US and Canada — as well as Australia, and continued to expand our business in Europe too. In total, we brought seven new partners on board across the three different continents.

Our largest partner, Preqin, continued to grow at a rapid pace, adding many new engineers over the last twelve months, bringing their Bangalore operation to 220 in total. A great success!

The Scalers comes certified

We’ve always had both our own safety, and that of our partners as an utmost priority. However, now we’ve got the papers to prove it with our ISO27001 certification. Getting this official stamp of approval from a leading authority represents our ensuring commitment to information security.

Put simply, our certification acts as an independent assurance to our present and future partners of The Scalers’ commitment to providing secure services of the highest quality.

Bucharest launch has lift off!

After conversations with some of our current and potential partners, and our capabilities on the European market, we’ve seen an opportunity to open a new location for building development teams. The launch of an operations centre in Romania gives our European partners a nearshoring avenue to venture down.

This is something you’ll definitely hear more from us about in 2022!

Anyone for cake?

Seven years! Since our humble beginnings in 2014 to today, it’s quite incredible to see how much we’ve grown as a business.

“From the house of hack in Bangalore through offices in Dublin, Krakow, and Bucharest, to partners in London, Sydney, Montreal, and Paris… In seven years we’ve now begun establishing our business around the world — and the best is still yet to come!”

– Emilien Coquard, CEO

As expected, we continued to add new people to our ever-expanding teams! That means there’s now a total of 383 people across all of our global locations. Simply incredible when we look back at the days at the House of Hack.

Leading from the front

The leadership team grew as we added two senior hires in the form of Mark Lawlor, Chief Financial Officer and Stuart Cleary, Chief Revenue Officer, who joined our Dublin office to help us develop and scale our operations.

With 20+ years in the field, Mark joined us as a triple threat with experience in audit, accounting, and finance. Stuart works at the intersection of Sales, Marketing, and Partner Success and has 13 years in Silicon Valley under his belt. This includes four years at Amazon in London where he developed and launched new distribution channels for Amazon Prime Video in Europe.

We knew they’d be the best for the job in helping us reach new heights and build for the future — including hitting ambitious revenue targets for the next five years. With the new crew in place, we’re now ready to hit the boosters on The Scalers’ rocketship and go forth into new frontiers and journey to new heights.
