Summary

The Company

Snowdrop Solutions is a fast-paced location services specialist, serving the Fintech, Travel and Leisure, Transport, and Real Estate sectors. We embrace the latest technologies, especially those from Google Cloud Platform. As an established Google Partner, we uniquely leverage the latest Maps and Cloud technologies on behalf of a wide range of blue-chip customers in Europe, North America, and Southeast Asia.
