We Are
Bringing performance research to practice.
Our team combines over 30 man- years of web performance research at University of Hamburg.
In 2014 novel technology for caching dynamic data went into Baqend.
In 2018 Speed Kit launched as a SaaS for e-commerce speed.
Our Mission
Baqend's mission is a web without loading times.

We develop a performance add-on that uses innovative caching algorithms to minimize loading times of e-commerce websites. Our 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. Our technology is already leveraged by more than 6000 websites such as Baur in the Otto Group.
