NC Company Overview
Talkwalker is a technology company that focuses on social listening – that is, discovering and analyzing what is being said about targeted topics or brands on social networks and the wider web in general. It offers a wide range of tools, some of them free, that can help businesses of all sizes to gain powerful insights from social media, presented in useful, easy to understand ways that allow them to drive decision making. User-generated content on the internet can be incredibly useful for identifying trends, gauging opinion, and measuring the reception of products and campaigns, and Talkwalker aims to give its users the tools they need to access and understand that information.
Talkwalker, based in Luxembourg, was founded in 2009 by Thibaut Britz, who is the CTO. Britz previously built Luxembourg’s first text-based local search engine, blue.lu, at the age of 17, and he has won awards for computer science innovation and talent in 2011 and 2012.
As of May 2019, Talkwalker has offices in New York City and San Francisco in the USA, Frankfurt in Germany and in Singapore, as well as its original Luxembourg headquarters, and it has over 200 employees globally, comprising people of more than 20 nationalities.
