Infoblox, a successful EDB recruitment

“Should we grow here and can we grow? Of course the answer is yes. It’s affordable here, we don’t have traffic issues, and the weather is just as good.”

-Michael Brown, Director of Software & Development, Infoblox

Infoblox made the leap from the Silicon Valley to downtown Tacoma in 2016, rapidly outgrew its first location, and moved to new office space across town. Two years later, they’ve hired over 100 employees and expanded their office footprint yet again. Hiring is ongoing, with another 20 positions to fill by the end of 2018.

The highly qualified and able workforce, some of whom come from the University of Washington Tacoma, is a key factor in the company’s success. Infoblox has access to the top talent coming out of Pierce County educational institutions.

Could Tacoma be home to the next tech hub? One company already there says definitely!
