Toronto-headquartered digital consultancy Rangle has announced it is establishing its first European office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Rangle launched in 2013, specializing in website and app development, with a focus on Javascript and HTML5. The firm last year began a rebrand to position itself as more than a technical consultancy, emphasizing capabilities in strategy and creative. It simplified its logo to one evocative of slick agencies or marketing firms.

“From a brand perspective, we wanted it to appeal to CMOs and CEOs and have them trust our creative capabilities as well as the technologists who already appreciate it,” Nick Van Weerdenburg, Rangle CEO, told B2B News Network at the time.

The firm’s 240 staff currently work on building “modern digital experiences” by linking business strategy, design, and development. Rangle’s core offering remains web and mobile app development, and it has worked with a number of high-profile firms over the past six years, including Uniqlo, Aldo, and Match.com. The consultancy’s major projects have included building more than 60 apps for a major pharma company, and developing a global e-commerce system spanning 24 countries and four brands.

The new Amsterdam office will help strengthen the firm’s relationship with European clients, while establishing a regional presence and strategy.

“We pride ourselves on a true start-up-like partnership approach to helping our clients transform their digital business for the future, not the past,” Van Weerdenburg told Betakit.com. “Establishing our office in Amsterdam is the first step in working more closely with our clients.”

Rangle’s director of business development, Brendon Montgomery, will relocate to the Amsterdam office to help build the European team. In the short term, the company will look to hire on a technical director, enterprise architect, and a client partner for Rangle’s pharmaceutical account.

“Our affinity for solving complex business problems through our digital-first innovation and solution model is unparalleled,” said Montgomery. “We partner with our clients to help them take significant steps forward and become digital-first leaders in their market.”

The six-year-old consultancy has already racked up a number of accolades. It was number 17 on LinkedIn’s 2018 Top Startups in Canada ranking, and was recognized as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers  for 2019.
