Earlier this year, SoftServe had about 50 employees in the Texas capital. Its new Austin HQ also features open desks for workers visiting from Europe.
SoftServe set an open floor plan for its new office plus plenty of common areas for collaboration or just hanging out. It is also home to the company’s new customer experience center, where SoftServe can showcase its technology to clients and prospective clients, as well as host events with its technology partners such as Google and Cloudera.
The customer experience center “will enable us to demonstrate how we’ve addressed similar obstacles in the past while we explore each client’s unique set of circumstances and determine how we can help meet their objectives together,” SoftServe CEO Chris Baker said in a statement.
Pravo Construction was the general contractor for the office, Seventh Spectrum Studios handled design and CBRE Inc. was the project manager.
SoftServe said it has already worked with 60-plus Texas companies, including the likes of HomeAway Inc., RetailMeNot Inc., Bazaarvoice Inc. and SolarWinds Worldwide LLC from Austin.
SoftServe was founded in 1993 and produces hardware and software for other companies in a variety of sectors, from internet-of-things devices to physical security. It was a finalist in the 2017 South by Southwest Innovation Awards for a steering wheel that checks the electrical activity of a driver’s heart before he or she can start the vehicle.
