Our mission

Our mission is the reliable and proactive operation of your modern cloud infrastructure. We get up every day to deliver outstanding service to our friends, partners and customers. We are proud of our work and we love to present it to you and the world.

Henrik Hasenkamp, CEO gridscale, 12.10.2018

How it started:

After more than ten years in companies in the international cloud and hosting technologies and working with quite a few DAX and Fortune 500 companies, our founders knew that the demands on IT projects and the infrastructure behind them would continue to increase and that companies would need to be able to adapt quickly. It was clear that the increasingly complex technology landscape could no longer be operated by medium-sized companies on their own.

The birth of gridscale and the idea of making hyperscaler technologies available locally and in private environments without technological dependency.

Our Culture:

Our corporate culture creates space for creative ideas and exceptional people. We give our employees the freedom they need to develop. We create something new every day and consistently strive to push the boundaries of what is possible. Wherever possible, we dispense with structures and hierarchies and deal with each other openly. Every employee is part of gridscale and every employee shapes the history and the future of gridscale.
