Beyond Analysis opens a new office in Lithuania
Beyond Analysis uses machine learning, data automation and cloud-based technologies to deliver insights to the retail, financial services, telecommunications, e-commerce, and utility sectors across Europe. Our new Vilnius office will play a central role in artificial intelligence and machine learning strategy, with the team in Vilnius expected to grow to 25 employees.
Beyond Analysis offers customer insight, data tracking, predictive modelling, website development, project management, marketing strategy development, and implementation services. Our clients include such global brands as Kingfisher PLC, Virgin Flight Centre and Visa Inc.
The company has already developed ground-breaking applications and world firsts using big data such as the Vitality Index, Spendographics, Attrition Models, and Travel Competitive Insights products. Our Lithuanian office is a central part of our strategy and capability in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Analytics Application development. Chief Strategy Officer William Beresford says that the company tested other areas across the globe including Sri Lanka and India, but Lithuania in many ways an easy choice for the company.
Welcoming the move, William Beresford, said: “A number of key priorities for us included the availability of the right talent; proximity to our clients’ businesses and a strong cultural and linguistic fit, as much of our work is carried out face-to-face. It goes without saying that Lithuania ticks all of these in a heartbeat”.
The company plans to establish core data science and application development practices in the Vilnius office, with the Lithuanian team mainly working with machine learning and automation.
For Mantas Katinas, the managing director of Invest Lithuania, this serves as further evidence of the emergence of a new trend within the Lithuanian FDI landscape: “More and more successful tech companies from London are discovering Lithuania through our highly skilled and versatile talent pool. In this case, Beyond Analysis chose Lithuania because of the concentration of highly trained professional machine learning specialists. The country itself is a fertile ground to grow your business”.
As a relatively young company, Beyond Analysis is seeking passionate, driven and self-sufficient people in Lithuania. Open calls will soon be posted for Data scientists, Front and Back-End Developers.
