PHOENIX — A San Francisco-based technology company is planning to establish its first branch location in downtown Phoenix, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.
President and CEO Lawrence Coburn said with its growing workforce thanks to students, proximity to San Francisco and diverse city-life culture, Phoenix perfectly fit the mold for the expansion.
“We have a culture in our company where family is important, and wanted a location where going to the office was a day trip,” he said in an interview with Phoenix Business Journal. “I gave it a test run and boarded a flight at 6 in the morning, flew to Phoenix, had meetings, and was home in time for dinner with my family.”
The company saw Arizona State University as one of its first clients and had even hired students on as interns, an experience that Colburn said was a positive one and helped determine where the office would expand to.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said in a press release that the move will be a “huge addition” to the area.
“Anyone that has used a DoubleDutch-made app at a large event or conference knows they make the experience better, and I’m confident they will have the same positive impact on our emerging entrepreneurial ecosystem,” the release read.
DoubleDutch plans to add 30 employees to the office by the end of the year, according to the release.
