Our “main” office is located in Oakland—a short Bart ride from San Francisco. Our Oakland HQ has many advantages, ranging from free parking to a dog-friendly space above a local vet’s office. We haven’t invested in SF office space because we prefer to invest in our people. And, in case you haven’t heard, Oakland is a newly trendy, hot urban destination. We have a diversity of people, places and ready access to the entire Bay Area from Silicon Valley to Marin. More than 200 new restaurants opened in Oakland in the last year, Art Murmur draws thousands on Fridays, and Lake Merritt Picnic Sundays are fast becoming the place to be. Couple that with miles of hiking and bike trails, Pacific coastline and lower rents, and Oakland is a pretty fabulous place to work and live.
Of course, we work virtually with colleagues from New York to Mumbai. Because so much of our work is virtual, you may never see our HQ aside from these photos of Oakland rising!
