Duane smallOur very own senior VP of technology, Duane Barnes, recently sat down with the Triangle Business Journal to discuss the company’s rapid growth, which fueled the East Coast expansion with a dual headquarters in Raleigh, NC.

When it comes to tech talent availability, Duane notes that for every candidate he finds in Irvine, California (our West Coast headquarters), he finds four-to-five viable candidates in the Raleigh area. What was initially expected to be a lean, five-person team in the Raleigh office had grown to 15 by the end of 2017, with a current headcount of 21. More new hires are expected through the end of 2018 in engineering and support.

“We have a lot of growth planned,” Duane says. “I don’t think we could achieve all this without the talent pool and the office here.”
