In June, Gov. Bev Perdue announced that, through the Job Development Investment Grant, Citrix ShareFile will create 337 jobs and invest $12.5 million in North Carolina. With such explosive growth of employees to come, we need to move our office facilities to a new space that can accommodate the influx of staff. Over the next five years, we are looking to grow our employee base to more than double what it currently is.
There has been lots of chatter about where the new office location will be, but the wait is finally over. The new facility (just announced today) will be located in a space in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh. The 130,000 square-foot facility will retain the essence of the original warehouse environment while being outfitted with the latest technology to facilitate collaboration and teamwork.
We are thrilled that Citrix has chosen to expand ShareFile facilities in one of the fastest growing U.S. cities. The move to downtown Raleigh is exciting for us, and we are delighted to remain in such a well-established tech community. After all, Raleigh is indeed a great place to work and live!
“ShareFile is proud to have had a successful first six years building our business in North Carolina. We started as a two-person operation to what has now become 200-person division of one of the leading technology companies in the world. This move to downtown Raleigh marks an exciting new chapter in our business and an amazing opportunity for Citrix to attract top talent from a vibrant tech community and prestigious universities,” says Jesse Lipson, VP and GM, Data Sharing, Citrix
