Baqend develops a performance add-on that uses innovative caching algorithms to minimize loading times of e-commerce websites. Their product Speed Kit helps shops and brands to turn page speed into their competitive advantage.

Speed Kit is a web performance insurance: added as a JavaScript, it accelerates websites by 50–300%. With its automatic optimizations, Speed Kit improves the user experience, increases the conversion rate and SEO ranking, offloads the server, and dramatically reduces marketing costs through lower bounce rates.

Baqend's technology is already leveraged by more than 6000 websites such as Baur in the Otto Group. Baqend’s mission is a web without loading times.


Baqend is based in Hamburg, Germany (in the "Schanzenviertel").


Today, Baqend has an excellent team of 15 people – mostly developers.
