Bluevine, a fintech company founded in 2013 that bills itself as a leading provider of small business banking solutions, cut the ribbon Tuesday morning on its new company headquarters in Jersey City.
CEO Eyal Lifshitz said the company was founded in Redwood City, California, and has U.S. offices in Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas, and international offices in Tel Aviv and Karmiel, Israel, as well as Bengaluru, India.
Lifshitz said moving the headquarters to Jersey City adds to the innovative growth plan for the New Jersey business landscape while expanding its own office space. As part of the event, Bluevine announced a partnership with Rutgers University, which will include internship opportunities for students across departments at the leading fintech, keeping future tech talent in New Jersey.
More hiring is coming, too.
Bluevine has experienced significant headcount growth this year (fueled by $650 million in deposits) and continues to expand its markets across the country and globe, Lifshitz said.
Lifshitz feels having the headquarters in Jersey City will enable the company to have greater access to financial markets and room for further expansion. Lifshitz said Bluevine is hiring across all offices for engineering, risk and customer experience roles.
“With record numbers of new businesses forming each day, Bluevine is poised to support new and seasoned business owners throughout their entrepreneurial journeys with full-stack financial services and industry-leading perks and customer service,” Lifshitz said.
“I’m so proud of what our team has accomplished thus far and look forward to this next phase of growth with fresh talent in new cities. Our HQ in Jersey City serves as our new hub to lead our global operations.”
