File-sharing service Dropbox has four offices across the US, including New York City, San Fransisco, and Seattle — but nothing is quite like the Austin, Texas location.
With cowhide rugs and antler chandeliers, the design team from lauckgroup created a special office environment that Austin Dropboxers, as they call themselves, could call their second home. A full-service cafe, gym, music room, and the dog-friendly policy also helps create a unique work environment.
We recently chatted with Rusty Pierce, the office manager, and Aaron Limonthas, account manager and diversity lead, of the Austin location to hear more about what it’s like to work there. A tour of the space, below.
The Austin offices opened in 2015, when the company had reported $400 million in revenue. This year, the company announced that it's on a $1 billion revenue run rate.
The Austin offices are located in the heart of downtown, and take up two and half floors, or 29,500 square feet.
However they're currently expanding -- adding a whole new floor to the space as more people are hired within the sales and operations teams.
'Our office currently holds about 150 people, and we are pushing that limit and we're excited that we're continuing to grow,' said Pierce. Once the construction is complete, the office will be just over 50,000 square feet.
One of Pierce's and Limonthas' favourite space within the office is the full-service cafe, that also double as an event space.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are catered from the local Austin company, Rosemary's Catering, directly to the office. 'We don't go hungry here,' joked Pierce.
'There are a lot of open spaces which allows for cross functionality between other teams,' said Limonthas. 'I'm able to grab them for a quick question, and get problems solved a lot quicker and more efficiently (than via email).'
Since some call Austin the music capital of world, there's also a music room -- equipped with a drum set and guitars available to play.
