Nortal, an Estonia-based multinational end-to-end technology services provider, today announced the acquisition of Seattle-area cloud services startup Dev9 as it expands its North American operations.
Founded in 2010, Dev9 is a cloud services firm that focuses on building continuous delivery features for clients around the world on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. It helps companies modernize their software development chops by showing them how to automate parts of the process and streamline others, so they can ship code faster.
Nortal is in a similar field, but works across many different tech areas including data analysis and electronic identity, with a focus on building systems for governments. The 750-person company has played a significant role in digital projects in its native country of Estonia, which has built a national identity system using the blockchain.
In 2017, Nortal opened a Seattle-area office after inking an e-commerce project deal with a large telecom company. It plans to merge its Seattle operation with the 70-person Dev9 team to form a combined group of more than 90 people. Nortal will bring Dev9 under its brand in the future.
“This merger enriches our offerings, in the U.S. and globally, by enhancing our existing data-driven technology capabilities and adding significant depth to cloud modernization,” Nortal President Oleg Shvaikovsky said in a statement.
Matt Munson, co-founder and CEO of Dev9, will continue leading Dev9 as part of Nortal.
“Together with Nortal’s global delivery presence and business domain and industry expertise, Dev9 teams will now serve customers round-the-clock with high caliber, end-to-end best practice solutions,” Munson said in a statement.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
