Duda has developed a leading website development platform created specifically for web professionals who build websites for small businesses. Unlike Wix, Duda’s tools are intended for professionals only.
âThe business underwent a big change in 2014 and we effectively restarted the business. We were initially built around mobile, but after five years we have grown into a platform for professionals to build websites for small businesses, âItai Sadan, CEO of Duda, told Calcalist. “We’re like Wix but for professionals. We have a million websites on our platform, many of which were built through our white label platform.”
Sadan noted that the uniqueness of Duda is that he only targets professionals. âThe website building market is very large and there are many different needs that sometimes companies like WordPress or Wix don’t meet,â Sadan said. âDuda has very large customers and we also serve SaaS customers, technology companies who want to integrate a website builder into their platform. ”
Duda was founded in 2010 by Sadan and Amir Glatt. The company employs 180 people, 90 of whom are in Tel Aviv and the rest in Palo Alto, Colorado, London and Brazil. âWe want to recruit at least 100 more employees over the next year. Most to help develop the product and the rest to support the sales and marketing department,â Sadan said.
