A cloud communications company has opened a new U.S. headquarters in Jersey City, it announced recently, marking its first location in this country.
Infobip, which provides messaging solutions to customers nationwide, said in a news release that its 5,000-square-foot office at 111 Town Square Place represents the first part of what it hopes is a continued expansion into North America.
“Jersey City has become a rising tech hub, and its proximity to multiple carriers based in New Jersey is key for us,” Yuri Fiaschi, vice president of global sales, said in a prepared statement. “Infobip has recently become Tier 1 in the American market, which means it is fully connected with the major wireless carriers.”
Infobip said it has hired 16 employees for the site, with plans to double that number by year-end — including hiring in sales and marketing — pending work-from-home rules related to the COVID-19 crisis.
“We are now looking forward to becoming an active member in the local community once we can physically be in our office,” Fiaschi said. “With that said, we are still impacting the community in a positive manner by generating new jobs and providing support for government and health care institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Infobit noted it is offering health care and government entities free access to its technology platforms to help in the fight against coronavirus. Click here for more information.
“Jersey City provides us with easy access to the New York City market and the ability to tap into New Jersey’s tech talent,” Fiaschi added.
The company has global headquarters in London, and has more than 65 offices located on six continents.
