The Knot Worldwide, a leader in digital wedding planning, has started a process to hire more than 250 professionals, until the end of January, in order to reinforce the activity of its international technology hub in Barcelona. With this growth, the international team will employ more than 1,000 people worldwide. The new posts, most of them in technical and operational functions, will serve to continue reinforcing both corporate services and technological innovation in all product lines.
The international tech hub is currently responsible for developing the web and mobile technology platform that supports the company’s products and used in 16 countries, serving millions of engaged couples and hundreds of thousands of wedding professionals worldwide.
The positions most sought after by the company range from management positions such as Engineering Managers to manage newly created teams, to more purely technical profiles such as Backend and Fullstack Developers and positions within the Product area such as Product Managers and Product Designers. There will also be vacancies in the Data area with Data Analysts, Data Scientists and BI Developers. Apart from the technical profiles, Marketing, Finance and Operations will complete the list of areas that will have the most hires expected this year.
Throughout 2022, current employees and new additions will have the option to continue working remotely, they may go for several days or work entirely in the office. The Knot Worldwide values in-person interaction as it helps promote and foster company culture, which is why they create and deliver a hybrid work model.
Currently, the group’s international tech hub is located at the headquarters of Sant Cugat del Valles and in the central Balmes street in Barcelona, where more than 500 people currently work between both offices, of more than 23 different nationalities and, for the most part (61.6%) women.
The choice of the Catalan capital as the company’s international technology headquarters and its commitment to growth have led to the need to expand the team.
“As a technology company with a strong track record and tremendous opportunity for continued growth, we continually implement technological innovation to meet the needs of our couples and wedding professionals around the world. We are in a privileged position to offer a unique opportunity to candidates to join a team with a great present and greater projection for the future in a multicultural and diverse environment”, pointed out Angel Llull, president of International at The Knot Worldwide.
In addition to being able to work totally or partially remotely depending on the profile, candidates will be able to count on a wide range of social benefits such as flexible hours, health insurance, financial aid for telecommuting, flexible remuneration and training and learning plans adapted to the needs of the business and the people, while they develop their careers in a dynamic, agile, multicultural and flexible environment.
From the international headquarters, the business of 14 markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America is centralized and close to 900 employees in total are coordinated, a team that, with the new hires, will exceed the figure of 1,000 people.
