The new office will help us accommodate all the new team members we’ve added. When we raised our Series B in June, we committed to hiring at least 75 team members in the next year. We’re over a third of our way toward that goal, with major new additions in marketing, sales, and engineering. All of these additions are designed to ensure the best possible experience for our customers, whose feedback and passion for justice inspires us every day.
The move also puts us closer to some of the judges and juries that ensure justice in the Northern District of California. Both the County of Alameda Superior Court and the United States District Court convene just a few blocks from Franklin Street. We’ll continue our close relationship with the East Bay Community Law Clinic and Bay Area Legal Aid, two organizations whose missions we’ve supported since 2017.
2101 Webster Street in Oakland is part of a full city block complex called Center 21, which includes the newly developed 2100 Franklin Street Tower, certified as the first non-owner occupied LEED-Gold office tower in Oakland. (One of our new building-mates is The Sierra Club…) It’s steps away from the Kapor Center, Agave Uptown, and Umami Burger, among other great neighbors. Features like these are a major factor in Oakland’s ability to attract dynamic startups and incubators, like Powerhouse, Captricity, and npm. We’re excited to join them.
Come say “hi!” and learn more about how we’re growing. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon.
