SimpliSafe Relocates-Expands Boston, Massachusetts, Headquarters
The new headquarters will occupy approximately 150,000 square feet at 100 Summer Street, a roughly 70,000 square foot upgrade from SimpliSafe's current office located at 294 Washington Street. According to company officials, the expansion is slated for fall 2022.
"We're thrilled to expand our presence in Boston in a way that supports the needs of our dynamic and growing business and team," said SimpliSafe CEO, Christian Cerda. "SimpliSafe offers a truly unique opportunity for people in the Boston area to apply their functional expertise and passion to help us achieve our mission of making every home secure. As we continue to aggressively hire, specifically in disciplines like engineering, we hope to bring together at-home flexibility with a highly concepted in-person workspace in a way that's beneficial for present and future employees."
Currently, the majority of SimpliSafe's Boston-based workforce is working from home, company officials said. Once the custom buildout of the new corporate headquarters is complete, the company anticipates adopting a hybrid approach that incorporates both at-home and in-office work time.
"A one-size-fits-all proposition no longer suits today's workforce, which is why we're excited to introduce a new office that is designed to empower the SimpliSafe team to work with flexibility," said SimpliSafe Chief People Officer, Ai-Li Lim. "We've heard from our employees that they want to have a centralized location where they can come together to collaborate and engage in person, while still having the flexibility and autonomy that comes with working from home."
In addition to its headquarters in Downtown Boston, SimpliSafe also operates a state-of-the-art warehouse in Taunton, Massachusetts, as well as a customer care center in Richmond, Virginia, both of which were opened last year. The company recently announced it will further expand its presence in Richmond with the opening of a fully owned-and-operated professional monitoring center.
