Globys Hosts Open House to Celebrate New U.S. Headquarters in Seattle
This is a guest post from Derek Edwards, our CEO.
Just over a month ago, we moved into our new office in Union Station and all of us are very excited about the move. We are now in one of the most accessible, cultural and fun areas in the Puget Sound region.
To celebrate our new digs and share what’s been going on at Globys, we hosted an open house in our new space yesterday afternoon. We were pleased to have a great turnout from some of Seattle’s finest. From technology veterans to job seekers to investors and local media – everyone was eager to see our ‘cool’ space and to catch up with the Globys team.
Located between Pioneer Square and the International District, the new location offers convenient access to public transportation – light rail, commuter rail, Amtrak, ferry, bus, boltbus, etc. – all just a few steps away. The new office is surrounded by plenty of restaurants and coffee shops and with the stadiums (the homes of the Mariners and the Seahawks/Sounders FC) just a few blocks away, it’s always convenient to catch a game.
The office itself is great. We’re located on the seventh floor with panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Following the ‘open’ concept, the space has plenty of room to meet, collaborate and socialize. It features a pub complete with video gaming and shuffleboard for relaxation, a coffee shop, library, open deck, and glass walled conference rooms – all to enjoy in a day’s work at Globys.
Creating a green space was also a priority for us. Yes, we wanted to use sustainable green materials, but just as important – if not more – we wanted to create a healthy space for our employees. We set out to build a space free of toxic building materials, and we succeeded. The new office is a safe place to spend time and a place where employees appreciate their surroundings. The air is clean. There is lots of natural light. And our workstations and other surfaces are made from 100% natural raw materials.
With this move more than doubling our office space – and with plans to grow to take advantage of all of the additional space – it’s exciting times for Globys.
A ‘perfect storm’ of big data and mobile marketing, our solutions are redefining how mobile operators engage with their subscribers – turning deep customer insight into the right action to drive the right behavior. And with these solutions our customers are driving game changing business results.
There’s a lot of buzz around what we’re doing – whether big data analytics, data sciences, machine learning, context aware cloud computing, etc. – but what’s really exciting for Globys is the practical application of what we’ve developed and the people that we’re attracting to take that innovation to the next level.
