We’re happy to announce our expansion into mainland Europe with the opening of a new office in Zaragoza, Spain.
The opening of the new office comes at an exciting time in Building Blocks’ growth, as we look to drive our international expansion plans. CEO Jasper van de Luijtgaarden said:
“Building Blocks delivers digital technology solutions on global basis to a rapidly increasing international client base. Expanding into Spain will help us to continue delivering our exceptional levels of service, whilst enabling us to achieve our ambitions in mainland Europe and beyond.”
Our move into Spain was officially announced at a press conference held by Aragón Exterior on 14 May 2015, where Building Blocks’ Co-Founder, Jonathan Whiteside, said:
“Our research makes us believe that Spain, and Zaragoza in particular, can offer Building Blocks access to a highly skilled and enthusiastic work force to help us achieve our growth plans. We foster, nurture and reward talent, and seek people with an innovative and entrepreneurial mind-set, who wish to help us implement cutting-edge digital technologies for our world-leading clients."
Our Spanish office will launch with a team of ten empolyees, with the aim being to increase this number threefold in the next two years.

Our new office is in the city of Zaragoza in the province of Aragón, 300km to the west of Barcelona. Home to one of the most prestigious universities in Spain, the city is known for being an industry hub, with industrial and service sectors providing the backbone of the economy in the region.
We look forward to welcoming our Spanish team to the organisation as we embark on this next chapter of Building Blocks' growth.
