If you’ve ever been to New York, you’ll know that it lives up to its reputation as “the city that never sleeps.” Everything is bigger - from pancake stacks to skyscrapers - and everything is buzzier. It’s no surprise then, that when it comes to holidays, New York celebrations are on another level. From “Friendsgiving” to the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, Black Friday madness and the iconic Times Square Ball Drop. There’s no place like New York during the holidays.
From being named one of Denmark’s hottest scale-ups to announcing a major international award, increasing our headcount by 42% to securing innovative new funding, 2019 has been a defining year for Templafy.
Our New York office turned one in October, and has had an incredible first year. Since moving into Templafy’s Fifth Avenue HQ, we’ve increased our headcount to over thirty five employees, outgrown our office twice, onboarded some of the world’s biggest brands and delivered way beyond our original sales targets.
To celebrate our New York office turning one, we recently caught up with Managing Director Emil Dyrvig to get his insider’s take on Templafy’s first year stateside. In the interview, which covered everything from building a unique internal culture to his team’s plans for 2020, Emil also talked about Templafy’s “unconventional” recruitment process: a key strategy for onboarding and nurturing the extraordinary talent that’s driven growth and taken Templafy worldwide.
One year on from the opening of our New York office, things are looking quite different at our rooftop HQ on Fifth Avenue. Managing Director, Emil Dyrvig, has been there from the very start. From scouting out our office space, filling it with a team of exceptional talent and helping shape this next chapter of our Templafy story.
Templafy has a strong and valued relationship with Microsoft and its partner network. Having achieved Microsoft Gold Partner status, we’ve designed a platform that integrates seamlessly with Microsoft and partner applications to greatly enhance employee workflows and content governance. That’s why we’re thrilled to be a sponsor and exhibitor at this year’s Microsoft Inspire event.
