Dynatrace opens a major R&D hub in Tallinn: Estonia is a great place to grow

"We see Tallinn as one of the main R&D testbeds in Europe,” says Gordon Meyer, the development director of Dynatrace, a growing multimillion-dollar software intelligence company which is opening its major R&D hub in Estonia. “We are here to stay and grow,” Meyer states.

Estonia is a great place to grow

Dynatrace has grown rapidly since its establishment in Austria in 2005 – it has become one of the market leaders in the software intelligence sector. Dynatrace believes that software needs to work perfectly all over the world. Therefore, they need the best testbed, the best talent and a smooth expansion process to grow their business. And they have found all of this in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.

“We have had our eye on Tallinn for quite some time since Tallinn is said to be the hotbed of tech talents. We didn’t have to think twice when the opportunity to create a lab here appeared. It’s a great place to be. We are here to stay and grow,” Meyer confirms.

Dynatrace finds that the welcome to invest in Estonia and the moving process have been astonishing. “The infrastructure here is excellent. Also, the opportunity to find unique talents is a huge advantage. We have grown fast, 85% since our IPO [in 2019]. A supportive environment for both our company and team members provide certainty that we will be able to offer great service to our clients,” added Meyer.

As a first step, Dynatrace has recently acquired a high-speed parsing and query analytics company with Estonian origins, SpectX. The whole team continues with Dynatrace, including Renee Trisberg, the founder of SpectX, as the lead product architect in Dynatrace Tallinn, thus being a great example of the company’s talent retention policy.

Hiring 300+ top talents in Tallinn

Dynatrace is currently looking for the best location in Tallinn to build their lab and aims to hire more than 300 top talent to its Tallinn office in the next five years. The team recruitment has already begun and hiring the R&D lab manager, senior developers, and HR specialists is well under way.

The company has built labs in Linz (Headquarter), Vienna, Barcelona, Gdansk, and several Austrian cities. Dynatrace has 3,000 customers and 3,000 employees worldwide and the company’s total yearly revenue is 608 million euros ($704M).
