For those of you who have been following Rhiza for a while, you know that we’ve been growing quite a bit. We opened a new office in Seattle late last year, and now we are proud to announce that we are moving our Pittsburgh office to a new location to accomodate for our growth. The Pittsburgh Business Times got the scoop on the story today and helped us spread the word that we are the anchor tenant in the newly formed Revv Oakland co-working space.
Our new offices are in the heart of the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, which contains both Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt). This will allow us easier access to CMU and Pitt researchers and students, access to over 20 public transportation routes and provide a tremendous number of food/shopping options for our team.
More than just location, as an anchor tenant for Revv Oakland, we are helping to support not just our own growth, but that of other tech startups in our community. Rhiza will be working closely with Revv Oakland to provide greater networking and skills sharing opportunities, so that tech startups will learn from Rhiza’s experience and we can learn from them.
With a growing list of new clients like Comcast, PepsiCo, Dun & Bradstreet and more, we’re going to need the new space and look forward to expanding our footprint and creating new jobs in the community.
