Austin has a reputation as a tech town, but it is also growing its business sector in other fields. Recently, the city has become a hub for headquarters relocations. In the past five years, 66 companies anchored their operations in the city, more than any other metro area in the country, according to a review by CBRE. 

Unit 410 is among that growing number of businesses headquartered in Austin. A fully-remote engineering company building state-of-the-art, institutional-grade systems and solutions for secure network participation, their team is distributed across the country but maintains a hub for in-person engineering operations in the city.

Cryptocurrency Engineer Dan Maclean told Built In last year that the remote team connects and works together efficiently.

“Learning the development stack is always a work in progress, but it’s great to be surrounded by other engineers on the same journey,” he said.
