French digital marketing firm Criteo has announced it will expand its workforce in Barcelona by extending the number of workers to 300 in the first quarter of 2017.
The leading digital performance advertiser, which was a sponsor of PPW Madrid in 2016, has headquarters in France but is focusing on adding to its 250 strong workforce in the Catalan capital, where it occupies more than 5,000 square metres.
Criteo's director for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Thomas Jeanjean, said the company chose the city as its European hub because “the dynamism and attractiveness of Barcelona are key elements in our strategy in the search for new talent in the international arena”.
The company already has nationals from 22 countries serving customers in Europe, Central Asia and Africa. Criteo works with Sony, LetsBonus and H10 Hotels among other firms. The Barcelona office is the second largest following its headquaters in Paris.
