Veeva Systems Establishes Kansas City, Missouri, Engineering Hub

Veeva Systems, a global leader in cloud software for the life sciences industry, will establish operations in Kansas City, Missouri. The project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next five years.

The 10,000-square-foot engineering hub will be located in the Lightwell Building in downtown. The new office will serve as a hub for collaboration as part of the company’s Work Anywhere approach.

“We are excited to expand our presence in the Midwest which has been a great place for us to grow technology talent,” said Greg Whitsitt, Engineering Director and Kansas City Site Leader at Veeva. “For our engineers, consultants, and sales leaders in the region, the office will be a place to build new connections and share ideas to further innovation.”

For this expansion, Veeva Systems will benefit from the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“Veeva is one of the world’s most successful cloud software companies. Adding them to Missouri’s long list of leading global tech and health innovation companies is extremely exciting for our state,” noted Subash Alias, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “Veeva plans to hire more than 100 people in the region, and we are confident they will find the brightest talent here, as well as a thriving tech ecosystem that continues to grow and shape the future of the tech industry.”

Pleasanton, California-based Veeva Systems Inc. is an American cloud-computing company focused on pharmaceutical and life sciences industry applications.

“As a hub for the life sciences industry, Kansas City is a key location for leading companies like Veeva to expand and advance their innovative technology,” added Tim Cowden, President and CEO of the Kansas City Area Development Council. “With the more than 3,600 people that graduate with life science degrees in the metro each year, Kansas City offers companies like Veeva a well-educated pool of talent and a strong network of expertise as they continue to grow.”

“There's nothing like starting off the year with a win for our community,” said Steven Anthony, Executive Director of Business Development of the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, Missouri. “We look forward to continuing the momentum Veeva will create, bringing new businesses, jobs and investment to Kansas City, Missouri.”
