New Office Opening on US West Coast - Yeti Crashes San Francisco!
Phew, what a year it's been so far! Only two months in and already we've launched new tools, exciting features, and welcomed new team members.
And, drum roll... we've a new office opening in San Francisco!
We first hit the US in 2015, when we opened an office in New York City. Interest in Talkwalker's social media analytics platform was and remains high, and our US customer base was increasing rapidly. Opening the NYC office was the obvious next step in our growth strategy. The new office opening in San Francisco is the logical move towards driving our growth in the States.
Why San Francisco?
Let's see! The Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Giants, the 49ers, and Russian Hill. Not forgetting that Tony Bennett carelessly left his heart there and Al Capone holidayed on the Rock!
Seriously, San Francisco is a city that encourages innovation and technology, rivalling Silicon Valley as a centre for tech talent. It's the perfect fit and we'll be joining many big-name brands headquartered there including Twitter, Pinterest, Dropbox, Salesforce, Reddit, and Mozilla.
