Otta's take

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Access to the very best talent is a huge consideration for businesses of all sizes, but for high-growth enterprises it’s absolutely crucial to be able to tap into the skills and abilities of staff anywhere in the world. Localyze removes all of the barriers associated with this, supporting international staff during the entire relocation process. It does this with a comprehensive software solution platform that covers anything from visa requirements to social integration.

Some of Localyze’s over 400 clients include Free Now, Trade Republic, Babbel, Thoughtworks, Tier Mobility, and Personio. These organisations have hundreds of employees from different countries that need to manage their paperwork between embassies, labour agencies, foreigners’ offices and the local town halls.

Since its founding, Localyze has witnessed an acceleration of employer demand, growing on average at more than 30% month-on-month. Having expanded into the major talent hubs of Europe, it has recently closed a Series B funding round which is being used make an entrance into the US and Canadian markets. Localyze aims to be the go-to solution that allows companies to compliantly operate a decentralised, international setup, winning them the best talent.
