What a whirlwind month it’s been. With the successful release of Frontier Texting on July 1st, we’ve been able to shift our focus to the next priority: our big move to a new office space. After nearly five years in Lower Queen Anne, the old office was positively bursting at the seams. Even the closet was pulling double duty to house two sales people. Zipwhip was running out of space for our rapidly growing sales team, and it was time for an upgrade.
After a mildly manic month of planning by our dedicated moving maven, Felicia, the Zipwhip team made the move to our new offices at the Fourth and Battery building last Tuesday. Though the move went off without a hitch, unpacking has been a more arduous process. With the carpet laid and our desks assembled, the Zipwhip team has spent the last week settling into the south-west corner of the sixth floor.
“We love the Belltown neighborhood and our techy new neighbors like Popcap.” says Zipwhip’s CEO, John Lauer. “The consistent month-over-month growth of our landline and toll free texting business is what’s driving the move. We’re continuing to hire sales people just to keep up with rising demand.” The new space represents the results of a focused vision, and a very committed team of awesome people.
