creator of open source time series database InfluxDB, today announced
the opening of a second office in downtown Austin. On the heels of a
$60-million venture capital infusion, the new office is part of the
company’s growth strategy to further expand operations in the U.S. and
around the world. The company expects to nearly double the number of
employees worldwide by the end of 2019.
“Our team is growing quickly to keep up with enterprise demands for time
series data management,” said Evan Kaplan, CEO of InfluxData. “Hiring in
tech has never been so competitive so we look for talented people
wherever they are and have had tremendous success in Austin because it
attracts smart, creative and driven people – the kind we’re looking for
to join our team.”
InfluxData’s Austin office opening comes after another year of
exceptional growth. With the explosion of DevOps (e.g., Kubernetes,
microservices) and the Internet of Things (e.g., sensors), the adoption
of time series databases has accelerated as enterprises demand better
insights to achieve better results, and grow their customer base through
effective processing and analysis of time series data. In 2018,
InfluxData more than doubled its sales and headcount, reaching more than
500 customers for both DevOps and IoT functions – including Wayfair,
Mulesoft, RingCentral, PayPal and Cisco.
“We’re following the footsteps of other successful companies growing out
of Silicon Valley and opening operations in Austin,” said Lauren Partin,
sales development manager and head of the Austin office. “We have a lot
of space to grow and have already started expanding the team. We hope
that the convenient location of our new, open and creative workspace
will draw more people to join us.”
The InfluxData Austin office is located at 9020 North Capital of Texas
Highway, Building 2, Suite 337 – near the Arboretum in North Austin.
InfluxData has a distributed workforce, with staff throughout the U.S.
and across Europe. The company is hiring for many positions in every
department, and the Austin office is focused on recruiting sales
development representatives, technical
support engineers and database
engineers. All open positions are listed on www.influxdata.com/careers.
