Sponsored by Monday Properties and written by ARLnow.com, Startup Monday is a weekly column that profiles Arlington-based startups and their founders, plus other local technology happenings. The Ground Floor, Monday’s office space for young companies in Rosslyn, is now open. The Metro-accessible space features a 5,000-square-foot common area that includes a kitchen, lounge area, collaborative meeting spaces, and a stage for formal presentations.
Snagajob, a company that helps employers find hourly workers and vice versa, announced last week it had moved into a spacious new office in the Waterview building on N. Lynn Street.
The new business hub spans about 32,000 square feet, which is more than four times as big as Snagajob’s old office in Ballston. The office also features such amenities as free beer and popcorn, several game tables and a stunning view of Georgetown.
But all that new space is necessary for the quickly expanding firm. Last year, Snagajob grew its employee base by about 60 percent. Some of that growth came from its acquisition of PeopleMatter, an HR software business that aided employers in hiring, screening and managing employees.
This year, Snagajob is planning to grow its D.C.-area staff by about 50 percent. Many of those new employees will work in sales and sales management, account management, marketing and data science, the company said.
Currently, the tech firm employs about 450 “Snaggers” across its offices in Rosslyn; Richmond; Oakland, California and Charleston, South Carolina.
“Selecting an office location is really about choosing a community to be a part of,” said Viyas Sundaram, Snagajob’s Chief Revenue Officer, in a statement. “Arlington, and the larger D.C. metro area, has a thriving startup and tech community that we are excited to be a part of and support. I am looking forward to aggressively growing our team here to complement our other offices as we expand our footprint nationally.”
