MaritzCX Opens New Global Headquarters in Utah’s High Tech Corridor
– New office will accommodate rapid job creation and business expansion –
SALT LAKE CITY – March 1, 2016 – MaritzCX, a global leader in customer experience (CX) software and services, has moved into new world-wide headquarters in Lehi, Utah, to accommodate its expanding workforce and growing demand for its products. The new headquarters is located in the Traverse Ridge Center II in the heart of the area’s high tech corridor. The office includes 48,000 square feet on the top two floors, which will accommodate the company’s approximately 200 workers with room to expand to more than 340 in the next 24 months.
“We love the great location and the creative vibe of our new office,” said Carine Clark, CEO and president of MaritzCX. “We are hiring aggressively, and our new headquarters will help us attract and retain top talent. We want to be a destination company; a place where the smartest and most creative people come to start or accelerate their careers.”
MaritzCX consolidated its global headquarters in Utah from the Mid-West in 2014. Utah is the second fastest growing state for tech jobs, with six-month tech employment gains of 5.75 percent (Dice Report, August 2015). MaritzCX has been helping fuel that with its fast growing software and services business. The company has 2,100 employees located in 19 offices around the world. It has 500 clients and 1.5 million users on its subscription-based software platform.
The new headquarters includes an open design that promotes team collaboration with more than 30 conference rooms and meeting areas, healthy snack stations, game areas, a gym and cycling room, and on-property access to fitness trails to promote daily activity. It also includes an impressive network operations center to monitor the performance of its software around the world in real-time. The new headquarters was created by a collaborative design-build team, including architects, contractors, and suppliers who emphasized sustainable building practices and energy efficiency.
“Our new home was really designed around the needs of our amazing employees. We wanted an innovative space that would help them feel inspired every day,” said Clark. “We took great care to listen to what they wanted and to create efficiency that would help them excel.”
MaritzCX has demonstrated its commitment to STEM by providing over 80 engineering and marketing internships in 2015 to Utah university students. It regularly hosts engineering networking, training, and hackathon events, and will offer its new headquarters to be used for other networking and education opportunities to help employees and the community.
