Optimove’s next stage of growth
Malka joins Optimove at an interesting time. This is because the company is entering into its next stage of growth, which includes its expansion into the Asia Pacific region. In 2017, the company had a record year for growth as the company launched five new product features. The company also hired a new CTO and opened its Tel Aviv headquarters, where Malka will be based.
Earlier this year, Finance Magnates reported in May that Optimove had acquired DynamicMail from PowerInbox. DynamicMail provides software solutions for marketing emails.
Commenting on the new hire, Pini Yakuel, founder and CEO of Optimove said: “Optimove’s growth so far can be attributed to a small, talented and nimble group of employees, but as we enter our next stage of growth, we need someone who has implemented efficiencies at scale—Yarden has done exactly that in the Mecca of tech.
“His record and know-how will help us further innovate our product for our 300+ global customers, and grow our culture for our almost 200 employees.”
Malka also added: “I joined Optimove because it has the makings of the next martech unicorn: audacious goals; a smart customer base; and exemplary leadership.”
