OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fivetran, an automated data integration provider, today announced the opening of a new office in Sydney, Australia, continuing the company’s global expansion and growing its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region. At the official launch event held earlier today via video conference, the company also announced the availability of its first data center in the region, located in Australia, which will address on-shore data residency requirements, as well as offer local performance benefits for Fivetran customers. T.J. Chandler, Fivetran’s Managing Director for the region, hosted the online event and introduced the Sydney-based team.
In March, Fivetran announced a new office in India and continues to report impressive growth. Over the past year, Fivetran has grown its customer base by 75 percent, recently surpassing the 1,000-customer milestone, boosted revenue by more than 150 percent and more than doubled its global team, which now stands at approximately 350 employees.
Fivetran technology removes the final barrier to widespread adoption of data analytics programs: centralization of data into cloud warehouses and data lakes. Working with all major cloud providers, including Google, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Snowflake and Databricks, Fivetran makes the resource-intensive struggle to build and maintain data connectors to each individual data source a thing of the past. Fivetran’s pre-built connectors automate the entire process within minutes, enabling teams to focus on business intelligence, process enhancement, machine learning and other business-critical activities.
“Centralizing data is a problem all companies face and we’re proud to help customers across the globe implement solutions,” said George Fraser, CEO and co-founder of Fivetran. “Establishing an office in Sydney is an exciting step for us as we look to expand our footprint in the Asia-Pacific region and continue to scale our global business to meet rapidly growing demand.”
“Fivetran is growing and investing in areas that are most important to our customers’ success,” said Chandler. “In this instance, that means timely, substantive, in-region support and a product that ‘just works’ for customers in Australia, New Zealand and beyond.”
The Fivetran customer roster features Australian brands such as Afterpay, Boral, SWEAT and Oneflare, along with companies across the globe including ClassPass, Conagra Brands, Jumeirah International, Kiva, Lime, Monzo Bank, Optimizely, Talkdesk, Urban Outfitters and Square.
In September 2019, Fivetran announced it received $44 million in Series B funding, bringing its total funding to approximately $60 million. Fivetran is backed by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Matrix Partners and CEAS Investments.
