Miro Is Opening a Massive New Austin Office, Plans to Make 200 Hires
San Francisco-headquartered workplace collaboration tool Miro announced Tuesday that it will lease 72,000 square feet of office space in Colorado Tower, making Austin the company’s largest U.S. hub and the second largest of 11 hubs globally.
Miro’s Austin team is currently based out of a coworking space at WeWork Westview in Austin. In the spring of 2022, the company plans to move to floors 17, 18 and 19 of the 30-level high-rise at 303 Colorado St., in the heart of Austin’s Historic Warehouse District.
The new office features two outdoor decks, collaborative working spaces, a cafe and bike storage. Employees will be asked to contribute design ideas for the new office, which the company plans to renovate over the next four months.
Miro’s move into Colorado Tower reinforces the company’s rapid growth in the past year.
Miro has more than 1,000 employees across 11 hubs. The Austin team has doubled in size this year, growing to 163 employees. The Austin team is expected to grow to more than 200 employees by January 2022, and the company said in a news release it is will add a total of 200 new local roles “over the next year.”
The company offers a collaborative whiteboard platform that allows distributed teams to share ideas. The platform has more than 25 million users worldwide and more than 100,000 client organizations, including 95 percent of the Fortune 100. It last raised a $50 million Series B funding round in April 2020.
“Austin is one of the most vibrant technology cities in the United States and we’ve been proud to call it one of our hubs since 2020,” Miro co-founder and CEO Andrey Khusid said in a statement. “Miro leaders and employees love it because it’s an inspiring place to learn, grow, and drive change — which is one of our core values at Miro. We’re excited to bring even more opportunities to the market in the coming months.”
