Mimecast U.S. gets new bigger HQ in Boston
Today we celebrated the official opening of our exciting new 33,669 square foot North American headquarters in Boston. We’re expanding in the U.S. and our great new home in Boston quickly follows the opening of our offices in Chicago and Dallas and our bigger space in San Francisco. We’ve been in Boston since 2008 when we chose the city as our first base in the U.S.
We’re seeing lots of opportunity in the U.S. and expect to double in size to over 200 employees here by the end of the year, making the U.S. represent 35 percent of our global team. 30 percent of this growth will come from adding new Mimecasters to the team in Boston. If you’re interested in joining us then check out our opportunities here.
Our new office is at 480 Pleasant Street in Watertown in the former Boston Scientific Building, and is over 90 percent bigger than our previous space in the Waltham Watch Factory. We’ve a 152-seat auditorium and an open floor plan complete with several meeting rooms and demo rooms to help promote open collaboration.
While designing the new space, we also wanted to provide several wellness options for Mimecasters and the new office includes a relaxation area, yoga and workout studio, a wellness room for personal use and an on-site wellness expert to help address employees’ health questions and needs. Supporting our team in getting a good work-life balance is important to us – we hope that the combination of a beautiful working environment with these additional lifestyle elements will make Mimecast a fun place to work and build a career.
