Macedon Technologies, a trusted Appian partner providing Appian-based solutions and services, will invest $1.65 million to expand its corporate headquarters in the Reston community of Fairfax County, Virginia. The company plans to create 147 new jobs.
Founded in 2009, Macedon is adding 12,000 square feet at 11694 Plaza America Drive in Reston to its headquarters operations at 11700 Plaza America Drive.
“After extensive evaluation of several locations across the United States, Macedon decided that Virginia is the optimal location for our expansion for many reasons,” said Austin Rosenfeld, founder and CEO of Macedon Technologies. “The high quality of living in Northern Virginia and its proximity to Washington, D.C., helps us to attract and retain top talent. Reston has excellent public transportation, including Metro and two nearby major airports. As a consulting company, easy access to airports is a must. Reston is also rapidly expanding, providing ample housing options for our staff. Another important reason is that we can tap into a great local talent pool from several renowned Virginia universities.”
The FCEDA worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership to secure the project for Virginia and will support the company’s job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change in order to support employee training activities.
“I am delighted to see Macedon Technologies growing because it is a perfect fit for Fairfax County and the region,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “The company’s expertise in low-code software applications takes full advantage of the technology skills that our regional workforce has in abundance, and the company’s focus on talent.
