WE'RE RIGHT IN THE HEART OF SILICON VALLEY.

Our office on the 14th floor boasts a cool vibe and open workspace with awesome views of downtown San Jose and the local mountains. We’re walking distance from plenty of great restaurants and coffee shops, San Pedro Square Market and San Jose City Hall.  Our office just steps away from the St. James VTA Light Rail stop. And, hey, if electric scooters are your thing, we've got those too!
