Navan Opens Austin Office, Plans to Double Local Team
Booking management platform Navan has made its way to Austin.
The company announced Wednesday it opened a second Texas office this week. The Palo Alto, California-based company has additional offices in Dallas, Seattle, New York City, San Francisco, London, Amsterdam and Sydney, Australia.
The company’s cloud-based corporate travel and expense management platform acts as an end-to-end solution for finance teams and travel managers.
The Austin location will be a sales office. Employees will continue working under a hybrid model with some employees working from home and some in the new office.
“Austin hosts one of the best talent ecosystems in tech,” Carlos Delatorre, the company’s chief revenue officer, said in a statement. “We are planting our flag in Austin and plan to make it a center of gravity in the coming years for our growing sales organization. Between the world-class universities and the burgeoning tech company, Austin is the place to find diverse and ambitious talent.”
Although the new office will open with only 25 employees, the team is expected to double in the next year, according to the statement. Navan is currently hiring for eight positions in Austin.
The new office follows the company’s $155 million Series E round in January. Navan has raised more than $790 million to date, according to the company.
