After a busy year with a company rebrand, the launch of Automatic Extraction and Smart Browser, and opening an US office, we’re excited to close 2021 being listed 41 in Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Ireland.

At the beginning of this year, we changed from Scrapinghub to Zyte. With the rebranding we not only changed our name and look, but developed new technology to help extract web data. Zyte reflects who we are and where we’re going. We’re doing more than low-level web scraping, we’re focusing on web data and putting customers at the heart of what we do.

We are at the forefront of innovation in the web data extraction industry with two new data APIs:

Being listed among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, is the reflection of our team’s hard work and dedication to help companies from around the globe to get access to web data, so they can innovate and grow their business. We also want to thank our customers, who continuously put their trust in us. We love being your data partners.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards is one of Ireland’s foremost technology award programmes. It is a ranking of the country's 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on revenue growth over the last four years, and this year marks 22 years of the programme celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship in Ireland’s indigenous technology sector.

Cumulatively, the 2021 Fast 50 winners generated approximately €1 billion in total annual revenues and employed over 16,000 people in 2019. The average revenue of companies featured in the ranking was approximately €19 million, while the average growth rate of the companies over the last four years was over 700%. The awards also saw a record number of new entrants this year – in total, 20 companies are appearing on the ranking for the first time.

Announcing the winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 programme, David Shanahan, Partner, Deloitte said: “Congratulations to all of the companies that ranked this year. This is the first year we have seen the impact the pandemic has had on revenues of Irish tech companies. It will come as no surprise that many of this year’s winners have achieved accelerated growth and scale as a result of the pandemic and being able to capitalise on the global move to a digital way of life. 

“From enabling us to better look after ourselves, to providing critical technologies to keep businesses connected to customers, for example, these companies have shown us the creativity, resilience, and commitment to driving progress that is present in the indigenous technology sector in Ireland. It is also encouraging to see so many new entrants to the ranking – with a strong cohort of younger companies, the future of the indigenous sector looks bright. We are thrilled to showcase their achievements and wish them continued success over the coming years.”    

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking features both private and public listed technology companies that have demonstrated innovative strategies, sound management practices and marketplace vision, driving them to achieve the status of high-growth leaders.
