Kindred Group yesterday moved to its new state-of-the-art headquarters, located at the AMF Urban Escape building in central Stockholm.
First announced in November 2017, Kindred’s relocation sees 350 Stockholm employees staffed in a purpose built, innovation-enabling 7,000 sqm office designed by AMF Fastigheter.
Kindred has taken over two floors at the Urban Escape’s ‘Regeringsgatan 29 building’ starting April 8th, with other tenants in the new tech cluster including EQT, Netlight, and Microsoft.
Updating stakeholders, Kindred Group Chief Executive Henrik Tjärnström, marked the office relocation as a major corporate milestone and operational initiative completed.
“It is very exciting to finally move into new premises in the middle of Stockholm where we can continue to grow at a fast pace,” he explained. “Since the birth of Kindred more than 20 years ago, it has been important for us to create a work environment that reflects our culture and our values.”
Further, to the office relocation, Tjärnström and Kindred governance outlined the betting group’s commitment to hiring a further 250 employees, consolidating its position as one of Stockholm’s largest tech employers.
He added: “We are in an expansive phase right now and the new premises will allow us to grow rapidly. Several hundred new employees will be recruited to the Stockholm office in order for Kindred to secure its position as a digital gambling company at the forefront of technology development and sustainability.”
