Movin’ On Up: Spanning by EMC Snags ABJ’s Best Places to Work Award & Relocates to New Space in ATX
After three years as one of Austin’s hottest startups, Spanning is moving up and moving out! Last week, we once again made Austin Business Journal’s list of Best Places to Work in Central Texas. And with our move next fall into 501 Congress, Spanning will be situated in a newly redesigned classic building in the heart of downtown Austin, making it an even bigger and better place to work – literally, with 80% more space to continue innovating in the SaaS backup and recovery market.
While this is Spanning’s third year in a row to make the Austin Business Journal’s list of best places to work, it’s the first year since we’ve received the award as an EMC company. The list is based on data from anonymous surveys submitted by employees in workplaces across the Austin area, and only companies with 95% of their workforce participating in the survey are considered. We couldn’t be happier to be ranked among the 70 best places to work in Central Texas, especially since the rankings are based on feedback from the people who work here.
Our upcoming move to 501 Congress is great news for Spanning employees – not to mention partners and customers. Completely reimagined by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture and Sixthriver Architects, the building at Fifth Street and Congress Avenue will inspire staffers with our well-known collaborative, dog-friendly environment in a much larger space with tons of natural light, airy open workspaces, and a rooftop lounge. We’ll be well positioned there to meet the growing demand for Spanning cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solutions. And we’ll be doubling our headcount to get the job done.
If you’d like to be a part of a company that combines the spirit, innovation and fun of a startup with the credibility, strength and career opportunities of a large, industry-leading corporation like EMC, Spanning is the place for you. We’re looking for great sales and engineering talent right now. Check out the opportunities that await at one of the best places to work in the area, and let us hear from you today.
